Take Refuge in Him

Refuge-6

Hello everyone! I have a quick card to share with you today. I made this for this week's Shining the Light Challenge over at ODBD. The challenge is to use birds. I used this month's new release, Bird & Butterfly Labels, Large Bird Background, Small Bird Background, Scripture Collection 7 and Sing to the Lord. I stamped the small bird background onto Prima Sparkling Spring light blue dp, then I heat embossed the small bird background over that in white ep. I used my new Spellbinders Parisian Motifs to frame the image, and I cut it with the Spellbinders Label Eighteen, which this stamp was custom made for by our very own DT member, Dawn Lusk. I used the Grand Caliber to cut these with. I also used a T Holtz die for my edge treatment on the left, an MS punch for the white edge on the right and the negative part left over from another card for the bottom edge. I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the pink striped K&Co dp (wedding). Sorry I don't know the name of that folder. The bird is stamped with Memento London fog to keep it soft, then colored with Copics and cut out. I used SU! Baja Breeze ink for the main panel.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes, Crazy Challenge -Just Add Flowers, Make it Monday - Anything goes, My Partner in Crafting Crime -Layer it up, Paper Playtime -Anything Goes, Stamping Vacation - you name the challenge (Just use pastels), There's Magic in the Air - Lets use flowers, Corrosive Challenges - 2 Pastel Colours, Crafty Pad - Flower, Creative Cowgirls - Spring or Easter, Creative Inspirations Paint - Spring, Gingerloft - 2W - Got the Blues, I Did It Creations - Anything Goes, Sparkles Forum - Springtime, Cupcake Inspirations - Inspiration Photo*(chose the light blue and peachy pink cupcake), Catch The Bug - Anything Goes, Secret Crafter - Butterflies , Fairy Fun Fridays - Spring-themed, Fairy Knoll - 2E, 'whatever'


Hope you like it! Thanks as always for your sweet comments! They always make my day!

Have a blessed week! I'm coming off a migraine and thanking the Lord that I'm feeling better!!!

Grace, I shouldn't be amazied because God is here in the storm with us, but it is quite fantastic to me that so many of my new friends in blog land have had verses, sentiments and/or devotionals in the last few days that speak to my heart in the midst of my current storm. Thank You! He is our Refuge! And this is a beautiful card to represent that. Truly!
