Every Moment... Thank God!


 Hello friends!  I am back with a quick card I made for this week's Shining the Light Challenge over on the ODBD Blog!  It's a color challenge: Pink, Black or Gray, and White or Vanilla.  I chose an ivory base from Mark's Finest Papers, and designer paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found, Madison Ave.  I stamped the fantastic sentiment from this month's release at Our Daily Bread Designs, Thank God with Versafine directly on the dp.  I cut with Spellbinders Labels 4 small, and matted with a SB Petite Oval which I ran through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Textile folder, then framed that with the SB Floral Oval, also cut from dp from the same pad.  The flourish is Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.  Everything is sponged lightly with Distress Inks.  The tiny bird die is Memory Box, and the flowers in the corner are Wild Orchid (center one) and Prima (two outter ones). 

This week's Word Art Wednesday has a wonderfully encouraging verse for free... and two chances to win!  Be sure to check out the website for all the details... and this is the verse for this week, but in a beautiful font:

A new heart also will I give you, 
and a new spirit will I put within you:
and I will take away the stony heart of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26

I am  entering this in the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday- use any Scripture or encouraging sentiment (see website for weekly free word art as well),  Party Time Tuesdays -Royal Treatment)Jewels, Bling, sparkle, & shine), Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Crafting for all Seasons - many layers,  Creative Belli -sentiment only,  Just Keep on Creating - anything goes, Tandastamps -  Something new (stamp), Truly Scrumptious - pink, Whimsy Inspiration -  things with wings
