ODBDSLC259-Inspiration Challenge

Good morning!
Time for a new challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs. 
 Below my card is the inspiration photo for this week's challenge.
ODBD stamps used: Silk Stars, Snowflake Stars

I stamped the Snowflake star (two sizes) with VersaMark and embossed with Sparkle Blue then used the Splendorous Star die set to cut them out. I also cut one of the sizes of stars out of white.  I cut the background with the Flourished Star Pattern outer die with pierce marks, cut it at an angle with the Leafy Edged Border and embossed it with an Embossing folder.  I left the bottom part plain so that Leafy border would show up better.  I cut the border in blue as well as white.  The white border and embossing in sponged with blue.  I used some epoxy to glue the blue sequins on the border and squeezed a little Stickles in the center of each.  
Next I stamped a sentiment from the Silk Stars stamp set with VersaMark and embossed it with Sparkle Blue then cut it out with a Vintage Label then sponged the edges with blue.   The sentiment as well as the star is popped up.  As a final touch, I added a sparkly blue pearl to the center of the star.

"For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved".  John 3:17
That is so amazing!  We deserve to be judged but God wants to save us! Why? Because He loves us so much!!  I can trust Him with my life knowing how much He loves me.  I can trust Him with my kids too.  I know He loves them even more than I do!  When this life is done, I know I will be with Him forever!

Thanks for visiting today!
