Psalm 118:20

Wow, is it already the 8th of the month? Time for Lori Craig's Divine Design Challenge - memorize more of God's Word and use Scripture in our papercrafting. Here's my contribution.

I'm using my current favorite stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs - Path of Life. I just love the brick path and wall, the wrought-iron gate, and the garden scene. And what do you know - a gatefold card for my gate image and sentiment. Isn't that fun?!

Check this out: Before you slip off the belly band and "enter the gate(fold)" the path image is visible only as a watermark on the two celery panels. Hard to see the path. After you open the gatefold, the image is bright, clear and all nice and colorful. How's that for a little bit of religious symbolism?

[Note: I'm going to have to re-do the inside photo. Now that I see it on the screen, I realize I never colored the tree trunks and branches! Too funny!]

Blessings to you today!

Wonderful idea using the watermark on the front! I am glad you mentioned it, because I did not realize that is what you had done. Cards are SO much more enthralling IRL. LOVELY :)

Amy, this is lovely...your designs always amaze me! LOL...I can't tell in the picture that parts of the tree aren't coloured. Looks wonderful to me!

Such a beautiful card - love the soft colors on the front and the little work of art on the inside is just breathtaking.

This card is beautiful!!! Thanks so much for doing the Divine Design for us! Every month I tell myself I'm going to do that---my husband and I are starting to memorize some chapters together, maybe I'll start there!!! Lovely card~

I love the PS card. Both cards are very pretty, but my favorite is the pink & green one. You do such a nice job.
