CPS Sketch 101

This week Our Daily Bread designs is sponsoring the Card Positioning Systems sketch 101.
If you would like to play along, link your card HERE.

Be sure to check out what the ODBD DT did as well! Their links are in the left sidebar of my blog.
Here is my card for the CPS sketch:

I used the new February release I Am the Way! from ODBD. My designer paper is a retired pattern from Stampin' Up!. I used a little ribbon slide from my stash (really not as dark as the picture) which says 'faith'. My ribbon is Stampin' Up! Kraft Tafetta. I painted my lily with Angel Wings Shimmerz. The sentiment is stamped in Certainly Celery ink, and the whole card is layered on River Rock cardstock. Pearls by Kaiser.

Many of you know that I am not a native Nebraskan and hope to get back to the West someday. But on mornings like this, I do appreciate the skies in the Plains. My husband took this a couple of days ago about 7:00 a.m. And no, I didn't PhotoShop the colors - this is how it came out!
This is looking out our front yard across the street to the Park that is across the street from our house:
Enjoy your day!

I like your blog banner.
Stunning sunset. I got a picture of one like that recently, but I'd have to confess it was to do with the exposure, it certainly wasn't as spectacular IRL1.
And, of course, a lovely card. I think I will be humming "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life" all morning. Still, it's no bad thing to meditate on the truth :D.

Wow, what a gorgeous sunrise almost looks like a sunset in it's beauty! Your husband takes great pics1

I just love how you designed your card for the challenge; the colors and details are beautiful and I love the verse! It is one that reminds us of Christ's promise to us.

Your card is just gorgeous Judy!! Love the greens!!

And the photo your DH took of the sunrise is fantastic. I actually have a couple sunrise photos like that too. We get awesome sunrises and sunsets here in central California. Only because of the smog though...*grin* Guess there has to be something good to be said about our poor air quality...
