I Corinthians 2:9

     Hello!  We're Shining the Light today with a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!  This week is an inspirational challenge on these lovely photos.
     When I saw the photos I thought of shabby chic. I don't do shabby chic well but wanted to challenge myself to give it another try.  Here is my take on these photos.
     My attempt on shabby chic began with a beautiful scripture from ODBD Scripture Series 3.  I enjoy reflecting on scripture while creating with it even if knowing the verse by heart. 
     Next are floral papers by Pink Paislee, soft aqua lace by Webster's Pages, pink ribbon and pearls.  I distressed the paper edges.   I hope all of this adds up to shabby chic!
       For more creative inspiration on this challenge please check out the beautiful artwork from the ladies on the design team.
