Stampin' Sisters in Christ . . . challenge 130

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. This week's hostess is wonderful Miesje, who selected this verse from Ephesians 5:8-9 "You were once darkness but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth."

Her challenge this week is for you to create a card or project that uses both dark and light. Opposite colors; black/white, brown/ivory, deep blue/baby blue, red/pink etc. And our sponsor this week is Pizzazz Aplenty, with so many cool items in her store to bling up your creations. One randomly selected winner will receive a $10surprise package of goodies from her store. Now, just a short note here, the owner is having knee surgery so it might take a bit for her to respond, but sit tight and it will be sent out.

For my card I chose to use brown and ivory or cream colored cardstock. It seemed to go pretty well with the coffee cup themed set I own from Papertrey Ink. I used my corrugator and a texture folder from cuttlebug for some patterns I have seen on coffee cups or coffee cup cuffs. I used some paper that had a little bit of blue in it, it just seemed to need it. And I used a sentiment "miss you" from a different set, stamped within the coffee cups themselves; I'll be sending this to one of my kids.

Please check out the home page to read Miesje's thoughts on this verse and to view the creations by the rest of the design team, here. We look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery. HAve a blessed week!

The sketch I found at Tuesday Morning Sketches, a new blog to me, but this is sketch 136 so obviously they've been around a bit longer than SSIC. :) Thanks for looking!
