Hello my lovely friends and sisters (or brothers) in Jesus Christ. Last week I participated for the first time in ODBD challenges, I've been wanting to do so for about two years, but I didn't have stamps to do so. Now that my Community bought me some with so much Love, I participated immediately :) I loved the challenge, and was utterly surprised and overjoyed last Sunday, when I found out I had won the "Shining the Light Award". It was amazing! Thank you girls :) You put a Biiig Smile on my Face.
Now for some weeks I've been wanting to do something that is not the usual square card.. and now I've found the opportunity bcause there are some challenges this week that want to see "not square/rectangle cards".
Of course, first of all is the challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. And what lovely new releases there are this month! Awesome stamps girls!!
Then there is Cupcake Crafts with the theme: Round and Round.. and last, but not least the lovely Daring Cardmakers challenge with the lovely challenge: Here comes the sun. These want to see creations with orange/ red/ yellows... anything that says sunshine to us :)
So with all this in mind, I decided to do a dangling round Easter card, using again The Cross of Christ stamp set. I want to be prepared for Easter :) It will soon be here.
I used my Spellbinders Lrge Circle and Lrge Scalloped sets, and Basic Grey Marrakech papers. After I mounted the circles, I embelllished with green half pearls, some Prima orange roses, a small silver coloured cross charm (after which I cut the loop from where it is usually hooked), and some rhinestone stickers. Last, I added some faux stitches.
The small cross on the inside is stamped with Peeled Paint Distress Inks, and while it was still wet, I sweeped out the colour outwards to look as if the cross is giving out that peaceful green light. I also sweeped some peeled paint on the "Blessings" sentiment. Do you like it?
I would like to know what you think of it.. I'd love to discover some lovely new friends that glorify our God through their creations...and as for today, God bless you for taking the time to visit.. I'll leave you with this lovely video to help you think of Him, and what He did for you and me.. at this Holy time.
Blessed be God.
