Addicted to CAS Challenge #196 // The Spot Challenge #159

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

Addicted to CAS // #196
...A code word challenge! The code word for this current challenge is SKY!  And since this is a CAS challenge I kept it clean and layers, not embellishment and lots of white open space!!

The Spot // #159 ...A technique challenge!  The technique that they are spotlighting currently is ink blending.  I love this technique and use it fairly often.  For my blended sky I used Night of Navy, Pacific Point, and Bermuda Bay from Stampin Up.

Verse of the Day:

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.

Sunday Stamps Challenge #255 // Global Design Project #288

 2 challenges inspired today's card...

Sunday Stamps // #SSC255 ...A color challenge!! I love this combination of yellow, blue, and green!!  Made me think of sunny skies, palmy trees, and water...maybe that is because I live in Florida!!

Global Design Project // #GDP288 ...A CASE challenge!

Verse of the Day:

Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.

1 JOHN 2:15-16 (NIV)
