ODBDSLC210 - Sponging or Stencils (Week 2)

Welcome to week 2 of the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge - Sponging or Stencils! You can see the first card that I made for this challenge here. Here is some more inspiration from me for the challenge:

For this card I have stamped the image, from Our Daily Bread Designs Apples, on X-Press It blending card and coloured it with Copic markers. I've then sponged around the edges of the panel with Distress Ink Peeled Paint. 

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, Our Daily Bread Designs Apples, and has been stamped on Bazzill textured green card on the smooth side. I've then made my own stencil using ODBD Fancy Foliage Dies and used that the sponge some patterns around the sentiment and on the other green panel using Distress Ink Peeled Paint.

This is what my stencil looked like once I had finished using it.
The designer paper (DP) is from ODBD Blushing Rose Paper Collection and I've added some green hemp twine around the top of the card.

My husband, two little girls and I are on holidays this week up in Exmouth, Western Australia (and will later visit Shark Bay). It's wonderful to visit friends that we haven't seen for a while and share our love of the LORD. Holidays are usually fun but sometimes things do go wrong and we have already seen God's hand over us in the short time we've been away so far. We feel so blessed to be able to travel around and visit God's wonderful creation. How awesome is our God!
