ODBDSLC220 - Sketch (Week 2)

It's now into week 2 of Our Daily Bread Designs' Shining the Light challenge, ODBDSLC220, which is a sketch challenge. You can see the first card I made for this challenge here. Here is my second card:

Elizabeth Whisson, Copics, For the Graduate, Our Daily Bread Desings, Mini Tags, Mini Tag Sentiments, Patriotic Collection, Proverbs 3:6

Here is the sketch again:

You can see that this time I've rotated the sketch 90 degrees anticlockwise.

I've made this card for my much younger cousin who won the 2015 Indigenous Scholarship for the school he will attend next year. Congratulations to him!

For my card I've used the image from Our Daily Bread Designs For the Graduate stamp set and coloured with Copic markers.

Copic markers used:
Bridge - E42, E44, E47, E49
Water - B41, B34, B45 and W5 (under the bridge)
Trees - E71, E74, E77
Foliage - YG23, G24 and R89 for flowers
Rocks - W2, W5 and W7
Sky - B21
Ground - E70, E42, YG23, W2 and W5

I've matted the image with some blue Bazzill textured card and then a piece of white card that I've stamped one of the verses from the same set, Our Daily Bread Designs For the Graduate.

I've used ODBD Patriotic Collection as my DP (love the blues in this collection!) and I've added some chocolate brown twine down the right side of my card. I've diecut a tag from ODBD Mini Tags Dies and stamped it with "Congrats!" which is just one of the many stamps that you get in the Our Daily Bread Designs' Mini Tags Sentiments stamp set.

It's only two days until Christmas! I hope you all have a lovely Christmas with friends and family and I pray that before all the food, presents, talking, laughter and everything else that happens on Christmas day, that we remember the greatest gift of all - our Lord Jesus Christ.

I attended our church's Christmas carols a few days ago and one of the ladies did a beautiful telling of the story of the birth of Jesus. She described the place where He was born as messy - which it would have been because He was born in a stable where the animals ate and drank and "did their business"! Can you imagine having your baby in that place? What a mess! But it is a messy world that we live in, and Jesus came to save those who are lost - to teach them about and bring them to God. God loves all of us so much that He allowed His only Son to come to this messy world, grow up in it and then be sacrificed on the cross for all of the wrongs that we have committed against God! What a gift that we have been given!

Thanks for looking and have a Happy Christmas and New Year!
