Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges #153


"Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in them."
Proverbs 30:5

Use a sentiment only on your card.

Our Daily Bread Designs is offering a $15 gift certificate. 

I used Sweet Stop Sketch #172 for my layout. My card also fits their spin this week which is to use dies or punches on your card. I used the Scripture Collection 4 stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. The papers I used are My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody. I wanted to keep my card very feminine to fit the verse I chose. I stitched around the edges with Kraft-colored thread. I embellished my card with some Kraft ribbon and some Kaisercraft pearls.
