ODBD October Product Focus ~ Crown of Thorns ~

Good morning dear friends!

If you are looking for the bi-weekly Exploring Cricut challenge click HERE...

  This month Our Daily Bread Designs' Product Focus features a fabulous stamp set called Crown of Thorns.   
Here is the set...


and my creation using Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight as my base...


I stamped the image on Copic compatible paper and colored it with Copics. I cut the image with a die and nestled it on the larger die base. A vine die cut and blossoms add a bit of interest in the corner. I also stamped the sentiment and hand cut it before layering it with dimensional foam. A few pearls are scattered around the die for added bling.

The weekly Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge is to create something that reflects peace and calm.  Although some may think the image of Christ is not peaceful, I beg to differ.  This image reminds me just how safe and secure I am in God's love since Christ bore the punishment of my sins.  There is nothing more calming than that.  After all if Christ could give His life for me and suffer so, what do I have to worry about???  That my friends is PEACE for mind...

Thanks for stopping in and don't forget to pop by Our Daily Bread Designs' blog to see all the lovely creations made with this powerful set! Blessings...

Lori

This is really beautiful, Lori. I love the green swirl of vine coming out from the flowers, and it all ties together. Just chilling really, and I thank you for sharing it in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday reminding each of us of that day "He wore our crown" and died for us.
Blessings,

So beautiful. Your coloring is awesome. You are definitely right. We have "Peace" because he bore our sins on that awful cross.
