CCEEC and BVC08 Everlasting Life




Hey you all!!!

Today has been a very cloudy and rainy day - perfect stamping weather - LOL!!!

My friend Denise aka *peanutbee* made me aware of this fabulous blog. Some super duper talented ladies are running the show and believe it or not I had no idea that this blog existed - you can find out more right here. Thank you Denise for stirring me in the right direction - you are the best - LOL !!!

Today's challenge is to create a card using only *Brown & Black* - wow - I wasn't sure about that comb, but now after putting this card together I'm so happy that I gave it a try - I really, really like it!!!

Remember I was telling you about the Bible Verse Challenge (BVC08) over on SCS??? Well - I was always behind on the Challenge and now thank goodness I'm one moth ahead....I combined the Challenges and I have used this fabulous Bible Verse from John 3:16 reading.....

For God so Loved the World He Gave His Only Son that whoever Believes in Him should not Perish but have Everlasting Life.

Isn't that a beautiful Verse??? I have found this Stamp at *Cornish Heritage Farms*.

For this card I have started out with a Whisper White base and layered it with Basic Black and Chocolate Chip CS. Next I have stamped the *Stitched BG* Stamp with Chocolate Chip and layered it with Basic Black CS. This layer was raised with Stampin Dimensionals.
Then I have cut a smaller panel with Chocolate Chip and Whisper White. I have added a Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon onto the panel and adhered it across the card.

Next I have stamped the Bible Verse with Chocolate Chip and layered it onto a Basic Black Nestie - I've also raised it with Stampin Dimensionals. To finish the card off I have added some Black Medium Brads from Making Memories.

Hope you like the card and give this color combo a try!!! ~TFL~

Silke, you have done such a beautiful job combining brown and black. Love the card! I've had such a long, busy weekend with family that I haven't been able to check your blog for a few days. All of your cards this weekend have blown me away. I'm loving the inspiration for using Plum Pudding. I also love the variety of cards you've created, while still maintaining your clean, classic style.
