SALT Bi-Weekly Challenge - JESUS IS LORD

This week is was Kimberly's turn to present us with a challenge and this week's theme on the SALT blog is JESUS IS LORD!

"I (Kimberly) chose this because this is the start of our journey with God, acknowledging Jesus as our Lord and becoming born again! The wonderful thing is that it is so easy to join God's kingdom! If you confess with your mouth, JESUS IS LORD and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with the mouth that you confess and are saved." - Romans 10:9-10

Staying true to my design "style," I waited until the night before the due date to create my piece! :-) Not having an idea to start from I went to my Bible and found the perfect verse in Philippians 2:11:

"Therefore God has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

I started with some Basic Gray paper (can never go wrong there) and taking a few clues from a new Paper Trends book I recently published I added a scalloped border around a piece of 6"x6" BG paper. The border was created by using a SU! slit punch. My verse, which was printed on a piece of pale yellow vellum, needed a resting place so a plain piece of BG was added, layered on Pumpin Pie cardstock, to serve as the vellum's anchor.

When one needs a fantastic embellishment where else do you reach but for a giant Prima flower, which fit perfectly. I did add a stamped SU! flower in the middle of the Prima, along with a giant brad for some additional dimension. And speaking of dimension, what about that faux ribbon at the bottom of the card? How cool is that?? Found the idea in the above mentioned Paper Trends book (Julie - it was a good purchase!!) :-) The "ribbon" is made out of two pieces of Crate paper and the star covered in gold wire was the finishing piece.

All of us at SALT would love to see what you come up with based on this challenge! Leave a comment here or on the SALT blog with a link back to your creation!

Enjoy and happy creating!
