Not quite positive this is what the girls had in mind at Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge for this week's challenge, but I am going to try and submit it anyway. :)
We were to show the world rejoicing in the Lord in our cards. Although I didn't use the visual image as my center point -- I have flowers blooming in the background in the DP (Bella Rose from Stampin Up), and I think my sentiment with "God is Good" shows that we are rejoicing in the Lord. This card was given to our pastor today for pastor's appreciation (its the month of October in case you weren't aware so you have the entire month to prepare). The sentiments on the front of this card are from Sweet and Sassy stamps.
The inside was decorated with the same paper, but the sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I had to change it a little bit since it is from "us" and not me. The sentiment reads Blessings brighten when we count them! Thank You for blessing my life (changed to our lives) in such a wonderful way!" I used my marker to ink up the words I wanted to use and tried my best to keep my printing small like the font size to add the "our lives" part. The cs colors are ruby red and chocolate chip although I think it looks black in this last photo.
