Cleanse Me

I am trying to do Patter's Hymn Challenge this year. I tend to fall a little behind, but that's okay. She doesn't have a time limit on the challenge, rather encourages people to participate when they can.

Today's card is for the 5th challenge and it features the hymn Cleanse Me (or Search Me O God).





We were chatting on the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge thread. Due to that conversation, it occurred to me that I've gotten into a rut. (I don't like ruts!!!) I tend to always layer my pieces with a piece of black cardstock. While I do like the look - and think the black makes everything pop, I do not want to be in a rut. So today there isn't any BLACK cardstock on my card. LOL!

Okay, so I cheated. I used Handsome Hunter instead (another dark bold color). Alas.... I'm in a rut!








Here's the inside of my card:





This is my 111th card for the 100 Cards in 100 Days Challenge...and today is the 97th day of 2013. Just 3 more days to an accomplished goal! Woo Hoo!!!




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  6. Changing it up with Handsome Hunter - great idea! I like the Hymn on colored stock and with the stamping on top, very nice. That striped DP adds interest also. Nice card!
