Chalkboard John 14:6


Hello friends!  I hope you are enjoying a wonderful week!  It's so windy here today I'm wondering if we'll have power this afternoon when they say it's "really" going to get bad!  My house is already whistling!  LOL!

Anyway, I have another sneak peek for you.  This is a Chalkboard set to be released Friday by Our Daily Bread designs.  It's called Chalkboard- Johns.  I used today's sketch challenge on SCS for my layout and I stamped the image with VersaFine black ink, then sponged with Brilliance Irredescent White to create a bit of an erased look on my "chalkboard".  I used a black base, and My Mind's Eye designer paper, Bramble Rose. I added some burlap ribbon and black pearls, and a wrinkled seam binding bow finishes it off.  

I love this verse and I think it could be used for many uplifting cards.  I hope you'll be back Friday for the release and blog hop!

I am entering this in the following challenges:   Paper Minutes - Scraps Of Paper/Paper Cut Offs, Party Time Tuesdays -  Anything Goes, Through The Craft Room Door  Always Anything Goes!, Top Tip Tuesday -  Lavishly Luscious Layers, Tuesday Alchemy - Anything Goes, Twisted Tuesday -  No twist! Anything Goes,
Vickie's Challenges -Anything Goes, Inky Chicks -Becky's Bingo (Image, Ribbon & Pearls),
Forever Friends -Biweekly challenge -Use Ribbon or Lace, Love to Create Anything Goes with a Sentiment,  MyGrafico -  Anything Goes, The Ribbon Reel - Photo Inspiration* + Burlap & Ribbon, There She Goes - Wood Grain (my background is wood), Word Art Wednesday- Use free digi or any encouraging or scripture sentiment, . Cutie Pie Challenge -  Use 3 Different Textures,


Thanks for stopping!  I love knowing you were here!!!  It blesses my heart!

hugs,

Gorgeous card, Grace! I love the papers and the chalkboard is a perfect way to showcase the verse! Stay safe during the storms! It's been pouring and very windy all day here. We had thunderstorms, but didn't lose power. Hugs!

I don't think that beautiful is an adequate adjective for this card, Grace. It's AMAZING! I love the floral paper, the touch of burlap, the sweet bow, and the chalkboard sentiment. WOWZERS!
