ODBDSLC248- Anything Goes With Our Daily Bread Designs

Good morning!
Today starts a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
It is anything goes with ODBD.
ODBD stamps used: God Verses, He Watches Me
ODBD dies used: Sparrow Die, Vintage Flourish Pattern, SunBurst Background
I've used one of my favorite stamps today because I love the way purple Thistle looks when it is full of moisture from a rain or just dew and I love birds.   I made the new Sunburst my background panel. I love the scored lines and piercings. Beside the dies and stamps I used from ODBD, I used Stickles on the Thistle, rhinestones and ribbon.  I used a bit of yellow Brilliance ink on the background Sunburst panel and around the edge of the scripture panel.

To see more inspiration, please visit my design team sisters:

Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.

Are you at the end of your rope? Are you wondering if God has deserted you? Believe me, He has not.  If you don't feel God's presence guess who moved?  God loved us even while we were yet sinners, do you think He has gone somewhere? 
Ask God to search your heart, open it wide for Him to go where He pleases, see if there is anything that needs to be ummm, operated on? Psalms 139:23-24 "Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxiety; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting". Do you feel alone, you are not, God IS there but do you need to get rid of stuff that lays between you and He?   Letting God search your heart is necessary for drawing near to Him. Do it, He loves you and wants you close to Him.  You don't have to be afraid of THIS Father.

Gorgeous! Love the yellow and purple together! I love how that bird sits right atop that stem - it always amazes me how they can do that when I can barely stand up straight! :)

Oh, Robin, this is gorgeous! Like Paula, yellow is not my favorite color, but wow! I love the combination in your card! And that sparrow is just sweet and beautifully colored...and the thistle - wow, I love the Stickles. It makes them look so alive! Being Scottish, I just love thistle! Another beautiful card, my friend, and I also love the thoughts you've shared and am so comforted always knowing that my precious God is always with me! Hugs, sweet friend!
