SC214 - John 3:16

I pulled out my He is Risen set by Our Daily Bread Designs to make today's sketch challenge SC214 over at Splitcoast :) The scripture fit perfectly with the design and still allowed me a little room to play with some twine and a cross charm.

I ended up choosing some old designer papers that were lying around because I wanted to mix and match the colours. I crumpled up one of the Inque Boutique papers into a ball and then smoothed it out to add some texture and a bit of an old world feel. I added generous amounts of sponging around all the edges of the cardstock and then took my craft knife to distress the paper.

I really love the effect of different twines and threads mixed with papercrafts so I took a little creative licence and added some eyelets to anchor my linen thread down that holds my little pewter charm in place (pretty clever huh?) lol I added the spellbinder's Doodle Die in the upper corner because it just seemed to be missing something there and my lovely doodle filled up the space quite nicely :D

Speaking of Our Daily Bread Designs, I'm a little bit sad to tell you that this is my last month on their FABULOUS design team. I wanted to say that it has been a wonderful experience to work with Kelley Holland and her truly extraordinary team of talented ladies who are every bit supportive as they are chatty :D lol (you should see my email box at the end of every day!) I had an amazing time meeting some of the team at CHA just a short time ago and I look forward to visiting everyone over at their blogs and SCS :) Thank you Kelley for letting me be a part of your team and I wish you all the best with your very successful company! :D
