ODBDSLC247- Inspiration Challenge

Good morning!
Time for a new challenge at ODBD! Use the inspiration photo below my card to create a card.  

ODBD stamps used: Mini Tag Sentiments
ODBD papers used: Rustic Beauty

Isn't this new window set totally cute!  I just love playing with it.  Love the little flowers and flower box too!  I used part of a beautiful border to make the lattice looking design on the flower box because of the picture on the right, it is also popped up with foam tape.  So pretty!  I decided to cut my awning twice to make it striped (that seems to be the thing with awnings!!) It is glued to the top of the window at the top of the awning then I added foam tape 3 thick at the bottom part of the awning to get it to pop out. And, as I looked at these pictures the glass looks dark so instead of making a scene inside like wall paper and curtains as usualy, I made them look like the windows in the photo.  I cut a few extra flowers to fill the flower box a bit more (the set comes with the extra flowers).  My ribbon was dye with ink refills (Wild Plum) and then used under my fence and the bow on top to finish it off!  I used the beautiful papers from Rustic Beauty as my house and a mini tag for the sentiment (it looks like a welcome sign in the window I think).

Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for it affects everything you do.  Matthew 6: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
You have heard it said that the eye is the window to the soul? Yes, it is, Matthew 6:22 The lamp of the body is the eye.  Be careful what you let your eyes see.  Guard what goes into your eyes and into your heart. All sin starts with a little compromise. Romans 12:2 says And do not be comformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  How do we renew our minds?  By reading God's word and staying in touch with Him daily through prayer.  Have you been compromised by what is going on in the world around you, the political correctness, the popular opinion?  Turn your eyes to Jesus! This life is very short but eternity is want to be found faithful at the end (of this life) to Jesus.  Don't look to the left or the right, keep your eyes and heart on Him!
Don't know Jesus yet?  Start by knowing that "ALL have sinned and come short" of God's standards Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23 "The wages of sin is death". But God provided a way of salvation through Jesus John 3:16, Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us". Accept Him, Jesus Christ, as the only way to receive God's gift of eternal life. John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me". Then confess Jesus as Lord of you life. Romans 10: 9  "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved".  Find someone to tell and seek out a Christian church to get the spiritual teaching you will need to continue on your path.

Ah, Robin, this is just the sweetest little house! I want to come and visit with you there. I love the color scheme, and the fine details are the striped awning, butty flowers in the flower box. And that front gate with the ribbon finishes is so beautifully! It's a joy to see this, my friend. And I always love your Scripture verses and thoughts for the day. Hugs, dear friend!
