A Few More Dare Cards - Keep the Faith

Today I'm sharing a few more cards that I made for the Dare To Get Dirty challenges going on all week over on Split Coast. I'm not going to be able to get them all done the way I did last year - but I'm enjoying making the ones I have time to do!  I've been using stamps and supplies that I haven't gotten out in a while and using some techniques that have been long forgotten!   And that's always a good thing - to use what I have!

For this card I rubbed my ink pad over the inside cover of the embossing folder and then embossed the panel to get this lovely background!  I die cut the verse from Isaiah with a Mega Mat die from PTI and layered it over the panel with foam dots.
On this card I gold embossed the Psalm from Our Daily Bread, drew a  partial frame around the card with a gold Spica pen and added a die cut 'grateful' along the top.
 And for my third card today -  I die cut the Isaiah verse with a Wonky Rectangle and added the die cut 'blessed' along the bottom.  Both up on foam dots
 I'm entering this card in a new challenge I found recently -  the Word Art Wednesday  This week it's anything goes.
