This week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ our new challenge (#150) is quite simple:
Use torn paper somewhere somehow in your design!
Our creative hostess this week is PeggySue!
The theme verse from the Bible that she chose is
"The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom." Matthew 27:51
And our very generous sponsor, Inspired S
tamps, is offering a prize of a $15 store credit to one randomly drawn winner, chosen from all of our participants this week.
For my card this week I made a birthday card for one of my son-in-laws. Now that its done I'm thinking it looks just a bit too Christmas-y....what do you think? I think the gold cord is what does it for me!
But using the torn paper was really fun...and really easy! What a nice surprise!
And I am really looking forward to reading what PeggySue has to say in her devotional about that Bible verse! The veil being torn like that...from top to bottom...is very significant. It meant so many things, here's just a few I can think of: 1) God Himself performed the act of tearing the veil apart, indicating He was completely satisfied with Christ's perfect sacrifice; 2) the way to the Holy of Holies (and to God Himself) was now open to all believers because of Christ's finished work; 3) the old ceremonial laws of the temple have been replaced by the new law of love and faith in Jesus Christ. Scholars have written much about this amazing happening! If you want to read what our very own resident "scholar" has to say please hop over to our main blog, SSiC, or visit her blog (PeggySue's)...just click on her name in my sidebar.
So, won't you join us for our easy challenge this week?
Remember, for this challenge you must simply use the torn paper technique (just tear paper with your fingers and use it somehow on your card, but it must be torn, not cut).
Thanks for stopping by today! And thanks PeggySue for a fun and interesting challenge!
