Stampin' Sister's In Christ, Our Daily Bread Design (late) and a Dreamweaver!!!

Good morning!!! I hope you are having a great morning so far!! Today I am going to share a couple of cards. One was supposed to be for a challenge, but it is too late. I still want to share though!

My first card was inspired by the Stampin' Sister's In Christ challenge. This week Cindy, who is my Design Team partner at Cardabilities, told us a story of how she has been in a tough position for the last few years, and how her faith has gotten her through the roughest time of her life. Our challenge was to make a card using our "life verse" . As you can see, I chose 1 Corinthians 13 4-5. Who doesn't love this verse! I read it DAILY!!! Thank you Cindy!!! Your challenge was great!
I also made this card for the Our Daily Bread Design Challenge, but my submission was too late. Oops. We were asked to use a die cut or punch on our cards. That is pretty easy for me. I use dies on every card, but in the spirit of the challenge, I busted out the Provo Craft Gypsy, and used the Home Decor cartridge and made the little corner elements. The other dies were no other that my beloved Spellbinders.

Supplies used on my card:
Card Stock: Pretty In Pink, Whisper White (Stampin' Up); Black Shimmer (Island Paperie)
Stamps:1 Corinthians 13:4-5 (Our Daily Bread Designs)
Ink: Distress Embossing Ink (Ranger)
Embossing Powder: Detail Black (Missoula Memory Lane)
Dies: Provo Craft Cricut Home Decor Cartridge, Classic Scallop & Circle (Spellbinders)
Extras: Pearls (Recollections), Silver studs (I-Rock Gem setting tool); Liquid Pearls (Ranger); Lace (Garage Sale)

This card was just one that was weighing on my mind to make. I love this stencil so much from Dreamweavers and I love this verse. I used Gold Metallic Embossing paste on the cross and it gives such a beautiful shine. (Great job Lynell). I distressed the edges of the card rolled up one side for a more aged look and used Antique Linen and Old Paper Ink on the edges. I matted it on a SUPER SHINY gold piece of card stock. What do you think? Too much??

Here are all the supplies used...
Card Stock: Whisper White( Stampin'Up); White Confetti & Gold Shine (given to me as gift)
Stamps: Scripture Series One (Our Daily Bread Design)
Ink: Distress Embossing Ink, Distress Antique Linen, Distress Old Paper (Ranger)
Embossing Powder: Gold Dust (craft supply)
Gold Studs: I-Rock Gem Setting Tool (Imaginince)

Please let me know what you think of my cards today!!!
I hope you all have a super weekend!!
