Good morning to you!
Today starts a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
Our challenge is to make a card with NO COLORING.  You can use colored ink as I have for my Queen Anne's Lace bouquet but do not color your image.
ODBD stamps used: Life is a Gift, Scripture Collection 12
ODBD dies used: Asters and Leaves, Vintage Labels, Vintage Flourish Pattern, Beautiful Borders
ODBD papers: Christian Faith Collection
I cut each size aster die several times in white and a light lavender to get these nice full flowers, then formed each on a foam mat and flower tool.  I stamped the wild flowers (Queen Anne's Lace) with lavender on white then stamp the scripture on top with black and die cut with Vintage Labels.  I cut out the Vintage Flourish Pattern and the Beautiful borders  cie with white and sponged lavender on the stitch lines of the Vintage Flourish Pattern.  The Christian Faith paper is behind the Vintage Flourish Pattern die cut.  I made a multi-loop bow with lavender ribbon and stuffed it under the three asters.  The lavender heather is a pre-made flower that I bought.

Someone gave me a "Name" plate for Robin one time (It is hanging in the hallway) and this was the verse that was given for my name (the verse on my card).  I cherish that Name plate not for giving me the meaning of my name but for that scripture because that was me.  I felt like I was in a deep pit full of muck and mire, a world of darkness before I gave Jesus my heart.  Now I am standing firm on the Rock and in His wonderful light. It has been many years since that day of decision but I remember it as yesterday when I think of God's mercy upon my life.  How thankful I am that He loves me and that He gave everything so that I might live.
"But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter of my head".  Psalms 3:3
"Lord, protect me from those things that turn my attention from You. Clear the eyes of my heart so they can focus on the splendor of Your creation. Thank You for the blessings of this day". This is a little quoted prayer from a book called Daily Praise from the Bible.  I think it is a wonderful prayer that I will be repeating (or something like it) every day for now on!

Beautiful card and beautiful verse. Isn't it wonderful when a verse speaks right to us individually? Thankful for you, my sweet friend, and what you share.
