SSIC#45 He Has Made Everything Beautiful

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to share with you this card that I've managed to finish few minutes ago.  I was excited because there are only few hours left before the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge#45 closes. :)  The challenge was based on
Isaiah 53:5: "But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: The chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed."
And I say a big AMEN and THANK YOU LORD for that!

So, the challenge now is to use stripes in some manner in our card or project.  And since a friend from the church asked me to make her an engagement card for a friend using the verse from Ecclesiastes, I thought I'd use stripes to qualify for the challenge. She wanted the colours to be taken from the engagement invitation which happened to be autumn colours with a touch of gray.

My Bible verse is from ODBD Scripture Collection 1 and was stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut it with my Long Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged around it using Versacolor Laurel Leaf while still inside the die.  I also did the same thing with the circle panel but embossed it afterwards with Cuttlebug Divine Swirl embossing folder.  Both panels were sprayed with Glimmer Mist pearl for some sparkle.

The dp is from Basic Grey Mellow pad. It's very timing because all the papers on that pad are autumn in colours.  My base is a white cs, then I added an SU! Basic Gray, then an orange cs and then the Basic Grey dp.
I then use again my Bow Easy to create this brown satin bow and finished off the card with some Kaiserpearl pearls. The ribbon tails were adorned with my Stickles Star Dust.

Thanks for looking and I'll see you on my next post! Thank God for Sundays for this is the time where we can celebrate His goodness with our fellow believers!

Have a blessed day!
