My card today fills a few challenges I'm pleased to say!! Of course I've got to get in the color and sketch challenge from Christian Paper Crafts!! I'll be sharing what the challenges are in a minute but I did want to share that this card was also inspired by the challenge over at the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog, too! We were encouraged to pray and seek the Lord on whatever we created with this Scripture as our inspiration: Colossians 3:17 "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." Personally, I need the touch of the Holy Spirit daily to refresh me to walk in obedience so that my words and deeds will glorify the Father so I thought this stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs would be perfect to reflect that.
Here are the challenges from Christian Paper Crafts: Color Monday: You are my sunshine! COLORS: Yellow, white or cream, & one other color. When uploading to the CPC gallery, please use keyword CM46 and when uploading to your blog or other online galleries, please use keyword CPC-CM46. Fun colors, Jen!! Thanks!
Here is our fabulous Sketch Tuesday from Gloria and just a reminder when you upload on your blog to label/keyword with CPC-ST46
Just added: BIBLE VERSE THURSDAY Challenge: Use your favorite verse about "The Son" along with any project theme you like......OR use sunshine as your theme plus any verse you like. How easy is that?!When uploading to our gallery here at CPC, use the Keyword BVT44. If uploading to any additional online galleries, please use the Keyword CPC-BVT44. (Thanks Angella for a great pre-Spring challenge!!)
Our FUN ON FRIDAY Challenge: Since we are all so ready for spring, Cindy thought that it would be fun just to use flowers on our projects. It can be any kind of flowers, but you have to make them from a die-cut, hand-cut, etc. so when uploading on your blog or another online gallery don't forget to label with CPC-FOF43
Here is my card:
Recipe for my card:Paper: Cardstock : Paper Accents; Designer Paper, Creative Imaginations (Cross); Fancy Pants & Basic Grey (these were scraps I used for the flowers and the matting of the Scripture stamp)

I know I kind of strayed from the sketch but I was inspired by it! Gloria understands these things! And as we always remind each other: there are no challenge police on staff site!!
