Challenge #47 - BORDERS & FANCY EDGES

Welcome to a new challenge here at Twist of Faith!  We love to make cards and our "twist" is that always add a scripture, positive quote/verse, or uplifting quote.  We want to not only share our joy of making cards, but also encourage others with those cards.  You never know whose life you can touch with a card.
Let's first take a look at a sampling of the Gate Fold cards that were created for last weeks challenge!  Each and every entry was amazing and it was difficult to chose a top three:
#5 - Princess

#4 - Amy A.

And our challenge winner - the winner of 5 digi images of her choice from
 Robyn's Fetish is:
#3 - Nancy


Congratulations Nancy!!!  Be sure to contact Pauline using the email to the right so that you can receive instructions for redeeming your prize.

And now on to this weeks new challenge:

It's time to get out those punches, fancy scissors, dies, and/or cutting machines!  There are so many different edges and borders that can be created - here is your chance to experiment!  And of course includes a scripture, uplifting quote/sentiment, or positive verse.

We have been blessed with AMAZING sponsors this year and this week we have another:  Digi Darla Designs.  Here's a little bit about them:

DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea.  Emilea and I both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever!   There was only one problem! We are both shy and dislike the center of attention! As a way of "hiding behind the scenes" and avoiding having one spokeswoman, DigiDarla was born!

The stamps you will find in the store come from our art as well as a few family friends that help to digitize so we can keep up. Even Emilea's art teacher has granted permission to create digis from her artwork.  
Working with Emilea on this project has been a wonderful blessing and has stretched both of us.

Need some inspiration?  First a verse:

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty

Psalm 91:1

Now some eye candy that our Design Team created using images from Digi Darla Designs:

We hope that the cards our Design Team created inspired you to create a gate fold card - but don't forget to include a scripture, positive verse/quote, or uplifting verse.  We look forward to seeing your creation!

Should our Linky Tool fail us, share your creation through the comments section, with a direct link to your blog post.
