Happy February everyone!! Hope you're all doing well by the grace of our loving Lord Jesus Christ. This is my very first blog entry for this month and my very first card for this month as well.

The card that I made is for the following challenges:
ODBDSLC46 "The Blues" - using the colour blue on your card/project
SSCC74 - to use the colours blue (to represent water) and green (for the pasture). The challenge was inspired by the Bible verse taken from Psalm 23.

Here's my take:

The scripture that I used is from ODBD Scripture Collection 1. This is one of my favourite verses and one of my memory verses that I always use in times of worry or uncertainty. TRUST in the LORD..... in this changing world that we live, only One is certain not to change and that is God.  He is immovable and forever faithful and we can always count on Him in times of need. Praise His name forever!

I stamped my verse with Memento Tuxedo Black and cut it using Labels Seventeen (a recent purchase). While still inside the die, I sponged around with Versamagic Sea Breeze and sponged the outer edge with Tim Holtz Broken China for some depth.  The middle section was sponged with Memento New Sprout and SU! Old Olive. Finished it off with a sky blue flower from Kaisercraft. I also sponged the edges of the flowers with the same ink that I used for the main panel (for the big flower) and Old Olive for the small flower. The blue pearl is from K&Company. I didn't have any sponging pattern with the main panel that's why you'll notice that other parts were sponged heavier than the others but I like how it came out. :) I hope this card will qualify for the ODBD "The Blues" challenge eventhough my background dp is more on green but I believe I used more blues than the greens here. LOL!

This verse also goes out along with my prayers to the people in Queensland (one of Australia's states) who are currently experiencing a cyclone. Just recently many families and homes were devastated by a flood and now a cyclone is currently hitting the state again. I firmly believe in the power of prayer and since we can't physically go there, we can only offer prayers for them and believe by faith that eventhough calamities happen in our lives, God is in control.

Have a blessed Thursday!
