Faith: Hebrews 11:1

Happy Sunday and thank you once again for joining us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture! I am out of town this week so I have this post pre-scheduled - having faith that blogger will cooperate and post it on time!

This week the super talented MariLynn chose the verse and the challenge. The verse she chose comes from the book of Hebrews 11:1.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen." (KJV)
Faith is difficult to explain to someone who does not have faith. Faith just is - I know I am loved - I know that He is and that I am His. It is knowing that no matter what happens I am never alone. Faith just is. 

I made this card using one of the new stamp sets from ODBD called Serve the Lord, I also used the circle die cut that coordinates with it. I stamped the image 3 times - twice on white and once on ivory. I colored on one of the white and cut out the poppies. I popped up the ivory circle in the middle to make it look 3D. I placed 3 ribbons on top of each other to make it look full. The doodling is faux stitching.

The challenge this week is to make a card that you doodle on. Do not be overwhelmed by this (like I was). As you can see I doodled the faux stitches and I also kind of doodled the stems on the poppies. See - easy!
