THEME: “What’s Black and White and Red all Over?” 

A bible of course!!

I love how we are given the freedom to interpret the challenges however we are inspired by it. Mine came from the joke with the answer being a “newspaper.” We didn’t have a newspaper stamp so I decided a bible worked too. To do the bible I printed out a color version and a outline version. In the outline version I colored the bible black. Then I cut out the pages and bookmark from the colored version and glued it on my black base. Then I cut out the entire bible and placed it on red cardstock.The cross is a brad from Clear Dollar Stamps.

The design for the card came from My Favorite Things sketch #46 This is an older sketch but it was perfect for this. I changed it up a little but LOVE IT!! Thanks for the inspiration.

Your next stop on the hop is Jerusha – I love Paper Crafting.
