Amazing Grace

Happy Sunday morning! I have a multi-challenge card today that uses and ODBD verse as the focal point. Since there's so many challenges- I'm going to go ahead and link them up, show the card, and then "chat" about my thoughts behind the verse (meaning- why I chose it today).

EIC100- The Etsy Inspired Challenge #100! What a milestone and the gals (and some FAB sponsors) are hosting a grand celebration. You need to click on the link (EIC100) to go check it out! The shop is Cathy Walters and here is my inspiration piece. I took my inspiration from the theme (amazing grace) and even drew out some of the red into my card.



ODBDSLC24- Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge 24: today's challenge was to use three of something. I used 3 pearls up in the right corner.

Card Patterns sketch 76. They put up a "basic" sketch and you can embellish as necessary this week. I kept it pretty much the same except I used a rectangle instead of a circle.


Our Creative Corner - to use embossing
. I went with dry embossing using my cuttlebug

And finally- The Play Date Cafe challenge (PDCC41)- to use the colors in the inspiration photo. I used Ruby Red, Daffodil Delight, and white. FUN colors!


and the card:

Recipe:
Stamps- ODBD- Scripture Collection 2
Paper- Ruby Red, Ruby Red dsp, white, daffodil delight
Ink- black
Accessories- buttons, twine, pearls, SU scallop edge punch, cuttlebug embossing folder

I have been thinking a lot about grace lately so when I saw that pendant I knew immediately which one I would be using as my inspiration! I am so thankful for that gift of grace!
