Repent and be refreshed!

 Repent therefore, and turn back, that your sins may be blotted out,  
that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord. Acts 3:19-20a

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #163

This week, the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges YOU to an "inspired by cake" challenge, using one of the photos at right as your inspiration.

To make the challenge even more rewarding, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! And, if you use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. All submissions must be added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, July 28  at 8 p.m. EST. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.

Please take a bit of time to visit  my fellow 
challenge team members blogs, you'll be blessed!

Project Details

"Repent, the kingdom draweth nigh,"
The herald of the Lord doth cry.
Ye sinners lost through Adam’s fall,
Will ye not hearken to the call?

Repent! The gracious call believe,
Haste His forgiveness to receive.
The Prince of Life, incarnate Word,
Life and salvation can afford.

Divine Redeemer, glorious King!
Repentant hearts to Thee we bring.
Thy holy blood for us was spilt,
Cleanse us from all the stains of guilt.

Drawn by Thy Spirit, through Thy Word,
Thine invitation have we heard.
In answer to Thy sweet request,
We come to Thee, O Christ, for rest.

Thy pardon, full, complete, and free,
Removes sin’s awful penalty.
Our Father’s love is now restored;
Thou hast redeemed us, dearest Lord.

Let us Thy name forever bless,
On earth Thy Gospel truth confess,
Till saved by grace, through faith in Thee,
The gates of paradise we see.

Words: An­na B. Hoppe, 1921.

  3. Another beautiful card Jan Marie - I love your 'take' on the blue cake, and the filigree die cuts are a perfect frame for the scripture.

  4. I love that it is clean and simple with a focus on the Scripture yet at the same time it is very elegant. Your frame looks just like the design on the cake. Very nice.
