Confidence and Assurance! SLCODBD73 and MORE!

Happy Saturday!  I am in Virginia this weekend visiting my sister.  We have had a blast shopping.  My mom and dad road up with me.  It seems all we have done is go go go!  Fun times!   Before I left I was able to make a couple of cards.  I was not able to post those cards before I left, though so here goes one of them.

This card is for today's Shining the Light Challenge(SLCODBD73)!   It is a sketch!  I decided to make this card pretty clean and simple.  I am using ODBD Scripture Collection 7.  I got some new My Mind's Eye paper pads in the mail this week and just had to cut them.  This one uses Market Square.  I just love the pretty coral papers I used here.  I ink distressed the edges.  I sewing machine stitched all the layers.  I layered a few Spellbinders and finished with a cream seam binding bow, pearl gold button, and a couple of pearls. 

As always thank so much for stopping by!
