Bible Verse Challenge - March 2008

I came across this challenge on splitcoast to make an aide memoire for Bible verses each month. I have a ringed photo frame from Ikea that I've been meaning to use so this seemed like the perfect way to use it. I'll add a new 5x7" page each month and when I'm done, I'll have a beautiful inspiration piece to go on my desk. I plan to add pictures to the back of each page so it will be a photo album on one side and scripture verses on the other. This is my page for March (I need to catch up on January and February).

The Bible Verse Challenge also coincided with this week's Ways to Use It challenge, which was to use a computer-generated element in the project.
For this page, I printed the verse on vellum in dark blue and layered it over two pieces of patterned paper from the Periphery line (Basic Grey), one of which I scalloped with the corner rounder. I also inked the edges of my scalloped piece with some light blue chalk ink. I added some flowers to coordinate and put the whole thing on a piece of patterned paper (Barefoot "Birthday" Floral/Turquoise from MME's Bohemia). The flowers are Primas and from the Pretties kit, tinted artichoke with my inkpad. I I stamped From the Garden in Prussian Blue chalk ink on the background for some interest and texture. I'm pleased with the result and am looking forward to catching up on Jan and Feb for this challenge.

Supplies: Stamps: From the Garden - Stampin' Up; Paper: Bohemia - MME, Periphery - BasicGrey; Ink: Prussian Blue colorbox fluid chalk ink; Other: Pretties kit flower (dyed always artichoke with inkpad), Prima flower, always artichoke brads, 5/16" corner rounder - Stampin' Up, 1/4" circle punch.


  1. Beautiful card! I love the scripture!

  2. OH! You have my favorite stamp, too! Don't you just love how it makes you feel? I use it with an old SU set, Sweet Herbs, too. Love your card and thanks for sharing it with everyone.
