ODBDSLC63 - Sentiment Only

Wow... second post of the day!!  Click here for my JUGs card.

This week at the Shining the Light Challenge over at ODBD is  to use only a sentiment on your card.  I went very masculine for my card since I am going to be giving this to a wonderful person named James who spends his Sunday mornings singing worship music with the little ones in my church's Sunday school classes.   I met James last summer when he started his music ministry in the Sunday school class I taught at my chuch.  I cannot tell you what a blessing he has been to me and to the children that he sings with every Sunday.  Sadly, I won't be spending my Sundays with him any longer as after 10 years of teaching I made the decision to step out of that ministry and spend some time seeking after what God has planned for me next. 



Because James sings and plays his guitar I chose to use the ODBD set "Sing to the Lord".   I used some patterned paper from Stampin Up! and drew my color choices from the papers.  To give it a rustic feel I did some distressing and used twine as an embellishment. 

To play along with the challenge you don't need ODBD stamps, but if you wish to be considered for the Shining the Light award your card must use ODBD stamps.  Make things even more fun one random winner will be chosen and that person will receive a $15.00 gift certificate to the ODBD store!

Thanks for taking a peek... make sure to check out the projects from the ODBD challenge team of Chris, Sabrina, Francie, Silke, and Pat!
