Fun On Friday Challenge - Motif Jar embelishment!

Well it is time for our Fun on Friday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts and this week it is Robyn's turn to post the challenge!  So here is some of what she had to say!

"May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else, just as ours does for you." 1 Thessalonians 3:12
In a recent post one of our member's talked about a MOTIF Jar!  What is a MOTIF jar you ask?   MOTIF stands for "money and other things I find".  So I think most of you have a Motif jar of some sort whether it is a drawer or a mason jar that sits in the laundry room where you put odds and ends when you find them.  While this verse causes me to think of the new life that is about to present itself to some of our Mommas here at Christian Paper Crafts, I want to challenge you to ponder the words written here and create whatever the Lord lays upon your heart. Now as a secondary thought about the overflow, after understanding what a MOTIF is, what did you find to use on your Fun Creation for this Friday? Thank you to ONEY for the fun suggestion of using found items in a card or page, or any other paper creation!

So now it is my turn to let you see the card that I made for this Fun On Friday Challenge this week.  I do keep a container in my wash room to pick up the change and other things I find in my washer after the clothes have been taken out.  So as I went through this jar that sits on the dryer, I saw the small shells that I love to pick up at the beach and then forget to take them out of my pockets once I get home.  So I decided to use two of those small shells on this card!  When I first finished the card, I thought I don't really like this card, but then after looking a little bit more and adjusting a few things it began to grow on me.  So I hope it grows on you also.

Here is a close up of the card!

Remember to add your FOF106 to the keyword when you post to the gallery at Christian Paper Crafts and also if you have a blog link it to our Christian Paper Crafts Creative Blog.  Posting it other  galleries, please use CPC-FOF106 as your keyword.  
So whatever this verse makes you feel, make a scrapbook page, card, or any project, but remember to use one of those trinkets you have added to the "MOTIF" place in your home.

This card was also inspired by one of the sketches of our dear sketch hostess at Christian Paper Crafts, Gloria Stengel!  Thanks Gloria!

Hope to see lots of projects!

It's a lovely card Jonia! That Scripture stamp is wonderful and I love the addition of the shells! I really like the idea of calling it a "motif" jar, although I don't think I would have anything to put in it. I think I found a washed out post-it note once, but that's about it! lol
