OCC - ODBD - I Am The Way!

I'm so excited! I am going to participate in my first Our Creative Corner Card Challenge. Every Saturday they list a new challenge. I finally decided to take the plunge and play along too! This weeks challenge is from Laurie Schmidlin and her challenge is to use your favorite embellishment and design an entire card around it!

First off, I wanted to use another stamp from my new I Am The Way! set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I love these lily stamps! They are just so bright and cheery!

My first favorite embellishment right now is charms. They are so simple yet add so much to a card! I think I am going to go back to the store and get some more of this BELIEVE charm. I think it goes so nice with this set.

And my second favorite embellishment is Flat Back Pearls. I think they are sooo pretty, but the challenge...once you get the glue on them to not drop them! I always drop one where I don't want it! Thank God for my Adhesive Remover ! :) Greatest invention!

I had to do some more watercoloring! Yup, still obssessed with watercoloring. Watercoloring isn't complete until you add just a hint of Stickles for a little sparkle!

On the inside, I stamped the same John 14:6 verse but added a little sparkle to three words; Way, Truth and Life.

This card is available for purchase. Be sure to check out my eBay Listing.
