Happy Thanksgiving!!!Today is the day, in America, that we set aside to remember all our blessings...and to eat a wonderful meal with our friends and families. We're enjoying having our daughter, her fiance, my mother-in-law, brother-in-law and niece join us at our house today. If you are visiting here on Thanksgiving, thank you for sharing part of your day with me. I truly am thankful for my readers and am honored that you stop by to visit. For those of you that take the time to leave a comment, please know that I appreciate each and every one of them. I understand the sacrifice of time it takes to leave a comment and it makes my heart smile to read your comments on my cards/projects.
When I saw this Scripture digi in the the new Scripture Digi sets by Daydream Design, I couldn't wait to use it as the focal image on a card. This verse is such a great reminder that we're to live so that our lives bring glory to our Heavenly Father who has truly given us so MUCH.
I recently "found" this double-sided patterned paper at my local scrapbook store (aka LSS) and thought it would showcase a Scripture focused card perfectly. One side is this poppy pattern and the other a deep red pattern. I also had a new set of Spellbinders dies that I'd gotten for my birthday and couldn't wait to use them either. :)
I used layered both sides of the patterned paper with a piece of parchment paper between. After cutting out the Scripture, I matted it with the dark red side of the paper and layered it on a floral oval spellbinders panel. All my edges were inked. A gold ribbon bow, a pearly button, pearls and liquid pearls finished it off. My finished card is 5" x 7". I've been breaking out of my standard 5.5" square box a little lately. No promises on this trend continuing. :)

I wanted to mention a little more about these special Scripture sets. Diane had each of her Dream Team submit their favorite Scripture verse. She then turned each of them into a beautiful & unique digi stamp. There are 3 sets in all. If you enjoy using Scripture on your cards, scrapbook pages, and other projects, you will definitely want to check these out.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope each of you are enjoying the day with those you love. Happy Thanksgiving!!
