ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #272

I saw several challenges today that inspired this card, but the real inspiration was one of the first  verses I learned when I was 6 or 7, John 3:16. I thought this would be a beautiful Easter verse for one of my cards:
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.   John 3:16King James Version (KJV)



I rotated this lovely sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #344.



The challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs is to use Scripture and Lace.  I had to mask off the line on the bottom that said John 3:16. The verse and the lighter cross of nails behind it are from the ODBD stamp set, He Is Risen!
 
I saw the challenge at As You Like It to select a line from this bingo board and why:
 

I chose the middle line across first because purple is a favorite color of mine for Easter, and lace and die cut would go perfectly with my favorite purple paper. I used the "Violet Bouquet" from Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments collection.  The die is from Spellbinders Floral Ovals.

Thank you for visiting and letting me share one of my favorite verses. May God bless you and yours this Easter season.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
As You Like It - favorite line on Bingo Board - lace, purple, dies
Crafty Gals Corner #64 - Easter/Spring
Cuttlebug Mania - Happy Easter
Word Art Wednesday #222/223 - anything uplifting

The contrast between the lace and the ribbon/bow is a perfect match for the lovely DP. I like that you cut out some flowers to give dimension. Thank you so much for entering your creative and beautiful art in our AG FF challenge.
