Happy Birthday Christian Paper Crafts!

Christian Paper Crafts is celebrating their second anniversary this week, and we'd love to have you join us! We are starting things off this morning with an impromptu birthday blog hop. Me along with some of the other Design Members are starting it off with some amazing birthday cards!  And after you've checked them out, we'd love to have you play along, too. After all, what's a celebration without games and prizes?! Be sure to check the Creative Blog and the Christian Paper Crafts forum this morning for all the details on our amazing prizes, and how you can get a chance to win them.

Here is the birthday card that I made for the Christian Paper Crafts Blog Hop, along with a few other challenges.  Actually I was inspired by the sketch over at Our Daily Bread Designs which is good through this week.  Also another inspiration was from the SU LateNightStampers challenge this week which was to use at least three different embellishments.  So I added the rhinestones, the butterflies and the vanilla rosettes.

One of the reasons I used this stamp set is it really says how I feel about Christian Paper Crafts!  They are a gift from God for me.  It is a place where you can truly worship and share and I love people who love the Lord!

Here is a close up of the center of the card!

Also, I am still committed to doing the insides of my card and on the inside of the card, I decided to use a verse from the Scripture Collection 6 stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs.

Isn't that a wonderful verse and then I surrounded it by flowers from a SU stamp set called Happiness Shared.  I am just loving working on the insides of my cards! 

So rest up, get your creative thinking caps on, and get ready to play with us this week at Christian Paper Crafts as we fellowship and celebrate!  Did I mention there will be prizes and some wonderful prizes at that!  Be sure to check them out.
