Hello everyone!! Today I'm sharing my shaped card. This week the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) is to make a card that has a shape other than straight lines, no squares or rectangles for THIS challenge!  For this card I used He Watches Me, Tulip Corner, Faith, Ornate Frames Sentiments, Ornate Flowers and Borders stamps, Antique Labels and Borders Die, and Heart and Soul paper collection.
I used Copic Markers to color.  This is an Easel card and the sentiment inside is popped up so the the card top can rest on top of it when open.  It is very easy to display this way.
For more inspiration, please visit my very talented design team sisters:
To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click HERE.  You have until March 2nd to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have ODBD stamps we would love to see you use them.  If you participate, you have a chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps).  We would love to see your creations.

"Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on.  Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.  Are you not of more value than they?...But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."  Matt. 6:25-26 & 33
