Jesus Paid it All!! Hallelujah!

It seems I'm dropping my entry into the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenges at the very last minute, lately! Today is the last day for Challenge #85, and the verse for this week is Matthew 16:23:

"But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men."

The challenge is to use VersaMark or the same color ink ink on the same color of paper somewhere on your card.

I was clicking through various blogs today, including some challenges, and found the Timeless Tuesday Challenge #114.  The color challenge going on there right now is to use aqua, yellow and brown.  Then, I got my latest order from Mark's Finest Papers, which included the Cuttlebug Ornamental Iron cut and emboss.  I had one of my daughters test the cutting die, and she chose SU! Sage Shadow for the card stock.  Well, it's not aqua, but when I saw this lacy trim after the test cut, I knew I had to team it up with yellow and brown for this card.  The other colors of card stock are SU! Creamy Caramel (retired) and Daffodil Delight, and white from my stash.  I stamped the Weathered background on the yellow CS with SU! Summer Sun ink, (also retired).

The stamps I used are some new ones my lovely children gave me for my birthday a few weeks ago, and yes! this is the first time I've inked them.  They are from Blue Ridge Impressions.  I used SU! Creamy Caramel ink (retired) and colored with SU! chalks.  I also chalked the edges of the cross CS and then distressed with my scissors.

The flowers and pearls are from my stash.  I'm not sure I'll enter this in the Timeless Tuesday, we'll see. =)

(ETA) I just found another challenge into which I could enter this card.   Grace had a button for the Inspire Me Fridays challenge so I clicked over to check it out.  I decided to add this card to the challenge, and with enthusiastic encouragement coming from the same Grace, I'll enter the Timeless Tuesday, also!  Thanks, Grace!!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you all have a blessed weekend!
