It is time for Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge (SNTODBD24)!    This SNT rotation we are using the scripture as the focus of our cards.  We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps! Our Daily Bread Design stamps!  I am still working on a few Christmas cards.  I am slightly behind with those.  Yikes!   For my card I am using ODBD Joy to the World stamp set.  I am using one of the scripture sentiments.  I created a medallion flower embellishment and topped it off with a punch out of the gold embossed image in the set of just the baby Jesus!  I layered a couple of different pattern papers.  Added some lace trim and gold pearls to finish my card. 

Little TIP!  One of my favorite paper packs right now is the BasicGrey Curio.  I think I need to get another pack of this.  One of the things I really love about this paper pack is the vintage images, distressing, and black framed edge detailing that is on several of the sheets.  However, I have found that with a 6 X 6 paper pack and a 5.5 inch card, I was having to cut off some of the black framing on two sides.  It finally hit me to use my ink pad edge and swipe down the trimmed sides directly to the paper to create my own ink line to finish the frame.  Since the black frame is not perfect in the paper pack itself intentionally, my ink swiping works.  Too cool and so simple to do!  Thought I'd share!

Please check out the other ODBD Designers to see what they created with the  scripture as focus challenge!       FRAN, SABRINA, CHRISSYand LORELIE!
