I Pray to You, O Lord

I wanted to play along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch, and I managed to combine the sketch with two other challenges.  I used a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs, so that qualifies for their anything goes SLC 114 challenge, and ODBD is also sponsoring Word Art Wednesday this week.  The Word Art Wednesday challenge is Blessings from God.

Here's Carole's sketch.  Of course, the ribbon and flower elements in the sketch caught my eye right away!

I just got a new pad of Graphic 45 paper called "A Lady's Diary."  I thought this sentiment would be perfect to use with the dp that has clock faces.  It also fits the Word Art Wednesday challenge as a reminder of how richly blessed we are to experience God's love.  I added some zigzag stitching all around the largest panel, but it is really hard to see against the patterned paper.  The other panels all have straight stitching.

Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs "Time"
Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa, Vintage Photo Distress Ink (sponged)

Papers:  Cream, dps from Graphic 45 "A Lady's Diary"
Other:  SU! Baker's Twine in Calypso Coral, ribbon from stash, vintage flower button from stash, large rose from Recollections, EK Success "Abstract Flower" border punch, Nestabilities oval die, Bow Easy, sewing machine, Tim Holtz distressing tool, sponge

Card size:  6" square

Thanks for stopping by!
