Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 31 - A Clean Heart

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for a new challenge from the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog. This week's hostess is the talented Ceal who selected the verse, Psalm 51:7-10 "Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness, let the bones you have crushed rejoice. Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."

Her challenge is to create a clean and simple card or project, otherwise known as CAS. You might be able to tell that is a real challenge for me, although I do try sometimes! I hope you have fun with it.

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp, they have a great selection of things over the, you can check out the store here.

For my card I used a new set released by Verve called "Let it Shine" and a Plain Jane stamp with a verse from Psalm 84:11. We have snow here, in fact it snowed allllll day yesterday. Isn't a view of the sun a welcome sight? I needed to create some sunshine in my craft area! But when we don't see the sun in this world, we can carry the Son of eternity in our hearts. And we can rest in the assurance promised by a verse like Psalm 84:11 or Psalm 51.

I didn't exactly use a simple technique but I used a simple layout. This is a recessed tray card. I stamped the verse on acetate and used just three shades of glitter from the Martha Stewart pack to give the word "Sun" a bit of shine and sparkle. I colored in the sun in the corner with copics and then it just needed a little something more so I added the ribbon border treatment. Thanks for looking. Have a great Sunday!

This card looks so good to me since we are sitting in snow practically to our window sills. Slight exaggeration...but waaaay to much snow. It's supposed to be sunny...just like your card. Thanks for bringing a little warmth to my blogging. Have a blessed Lord's Day!
