ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD41) and MORE!

It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD41)! The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps.  The challenge this rotation is embossing! Use dry or heat embossing on your cards/projects. 

For my card I am using ODBD Children of God and Mini Tags 2 stamp sets.  I believe this image and sentiment really says it all.     I just really need to get back to the foundation of it all.  "Jesus Loves  Me!"     So simple, but there is power in those words.    It is not just a matter of saying the words, but really believing them. WOW!    

As for the details of my card, I embossed the focal image using versamark and black embossing powder.  I textured the back panel with a cuttlebug folder and a SU tulip frame folder.  I ink distressed the edges.  I layered a few Spellbinders and finished with a touch of lace and a dyed seam binding bow.

Check out the card Lori Ulrich  made with the embossing challenge!

As always thank so much for stopping by!
