Today I'm sharing a card I made for this week's Shining the Light Challenge(keyword: ODBDSLC187) over on the ODBD Blog. This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge and oh so pretty! Here is the inspiration photo:
I used just the word "Hope" from the Joy in a Jar set for my label, and then I loved this Scripture verse from Lamentations to focus the recipient's mind on the One in whom we hope, and that when we do place our trust and hope in Him, we are in the hands of a loving God who loves us divinely, and who knows the plans He has for us. We can rest in that, because we know He does all things well! Nothing goes unnoticed by Him, and He has a bigger plan for our lives than we can ever imagine!
This is a tri-fold but I did not get a photo of the card open. Please forgive me, but I have had a question on the dimensions of this card so I'm editing this to give you that info:
The total width of the middle center of the card is 4" (I did not show a picture of that center inside part) when card is opened all the way out. So with that in mind, starting at the left side, score a 9 9/16" wide piece of card stock at 1 5/8" and 5 5/8". This leaves the right panel (the one with the Scripture on it) just a sliver shorter than the middle panel, so that it does not interfere with the fold on the right side, which becomes the front most panel when closed. When closed the card measures 4 x 6".
I loved the colors in these inspiration photos! I was also inspired by the blue mason jar, the pretty pink flowers, and the pointed lace in the china cabinet.
I hope you'll join us and play along! Here are the details:
If at all possible, please upload your creations to Splitcoast or a blog if you would like comments or would like to be spotlighted. It is very difficult and sometimes impossible to leave comments on other forums or to save and post cards to be spotlighted from places like Flickr.
To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15
As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award.
