ODBDSLC242 - Sketch

I think these challenge have to be my favourite ones :-)
Here is my card:
Our Daily Bread Designs, Elizbaeth Whisson, Music Speaks, How Sweet the Sound, Amazing Grace Sheet Music, sketch, handmade card, Beautiful borders dies, Pennant, Shabby Rose Paper Collection

And here is the sketch:

I've pretty much stuck to the sketch, just altering the horizontal layer(s) slightly.

My front main panel has been stamped with Our Daily Bread Designs Amazing Grace Sheet Music in Memento Summer Sky and then with the image from Our Daily Bread Designs Music Speaks in Memento Tuxedo Black. The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Designs How Sweet the Sound.

I've used ODBD Beautiful Borders Dies to create the horizontal layer and ODBD Pennant dies to create the vertical one. I precut my cardstock to the width of the Pennant die before inserting it so that it would only cut the notched end; hence, making my piece longer than the actual die.

The gorgeous DP I've used is ODBD Shabby Rose Paper Collection. Most layers have been inked with Distress Ink Broken China. Lastly I've added a few sticky half-pearls.

This card reminds me of the awesome, unending love that God has for us. Such amazing love, grace and mercy he has shown us, in sending his only Son to die on the cross for our sins, the punishment that we all deserve. It is through this great act of love, and Jesus conquering death, that we may spend eternity with Him in heaven!
Some people look at the universe and say we are so insignificant, we are less than a "speck" in the "grand scheme of things". But this just shows how much God loves us and how great the love He has for us is. He created that whole universe for us to enjoy and He sent His son for us, mankind! God does not see us as insignificant - He loves each and every one of us. He know each of us by name and he even knows the number of hairs on our head.

"But the very hairs of your head are all numbered." Matthew 10:30

How amazing is God's love!
Thanks for looking!
