Delight Yourself in the Lord. . Act 2

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37.4

I loved this verse so much that I wanted to use it again! That and I stamped this panel for last week's challenge, but it was TOO orange and since orange is one of the colors I have the most difficulty with, decided to give it a go for this week's challenge card! 

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #119: Sponging

This week, the Our Daily Bread Design's Challenge Team challenges you to use sponging on your project!!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!!
