Hello friends,
Today I'm excited to share this card  for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
This is the sketch for this week's challenge.
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 January 19th to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have any Our Daily Bread Designs (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.
For my sketch challenge card, I've used the following stamps and dies:
ODBD-Apothecary Bottles stamp set and matching dies.
ODBD-Ornate Frame Sentiments stamp set
ODBD-Joy in a Jar stamp set (it also has a coordinating die set "Antique Labels")
ODBD-Quatrefoil Pattern Die
and Spellbinders Ovals and scalloped ovals
Border punch
Graphic 45 paper
ribbon, pearls, sequins and tiny tag.
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen".  Hebrews 11:1
"Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him".  Hebrews 11:6
My hope comes from knowing God and knowing that He wants the best for me.  Sometimes it doesn't seem to be that way but if we are patient and wait for God's timing, we see that He does everything for a reason.  We just have to trust Him.  Romans 8:28, Jeremiah 29:11-13  Read it and be encouraged!

Oh, Robin, your card is gorgeous! I just love how you've used one of the Apothecary Bottles and your colors with the DP! Beautiful take on the sketch this week! I'm also reading the "recipe" and love how you've used the Quatrefoil die. Love your verse at the end, and I so agree that our hope is in the Lord…praise Him!! Warm hugs, sweet friend!
