With Wings as Eagles

Hello everyone!

It is time for another Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD10)! Silke Ledlow is our challenge hostess this month! Silke is challenging us with a sketch! It is a high and low card or tall and thin. Your choice! However, it is not an A2 or a square card sketch! Good luck and have fun with it! 50713534

To see the other DT creations for inspiration, please visit the following DT blogs!


I used Our Daily Bread design's On Eagles Wings. The base is Bassill, the soft blue is from my stash, the sentiment is on vintage cream, and the designer paper is BasicGrey Periphery. I love the soft muted shades in this card. I colored the Eagle image with Prisma Pencils and cut out, popped up on dimensionals. I used the Spellbinder's Long ovals for the sentiment. I added punched edges with an EK Success punch and some pearls and I textured the blue panels with the CB Swirls folder. The ribbon is from my stash. I hope you enjoyed this card.... the verse is among my favorites... Is. 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles... they shall run and not grow weary, they shall walk and not faint.

What a gorgeous card, Grace!! I am drawn to the scripture right away, so you sure did something right to highlight this!! The layout and design is perfect with this verse too!! Thanks for sharing your lovely work and encouraging card!!

Rosietoes said...

Grace this is a beauty. I love the verse you have used and I really must get myself an eagle stamp - it adds such impact to the sentiment.
The colours are lovely - strong but not overpowering. Love all the punched touches too and the lo complements the card shape to perfection.
