Hi, everyone! Today's Ways To Use It Challenge is about the four elements....my card today represents wind with the soaring eagle. I have used the new 'How Great Thou Art' set from Our Daily Bread designs, along with the eagle image from 'On Eagles' Wings', and the mountain scene from 'Keep Climbing'. The song lyric and mountains were stamped in black onto a white panel, the mountains and trees were colored with sponge daubers and markers, the clouds were sponged over a scalloped circle. The eagle was stamped on a separate piece of cardstock, colored with sponge daubers and markers, fussy cut, then popped up with foam tape. Paper piercing, metal brads, and linen thread were added as embellishments. I will also be submitting this to the monthly theme of 'Keys of Happiness' (my faith) and the word play challenge: K = kraft, E = Eagle, Y = yellow-orange marker, S = sponging. Thanks so much for looking! Have a very blessed day!

Beautiful Angella with two L's, Heehee, I've never called you Angella before! I love this card!! The How Great Thou Art is perfect for such a scene. When I consider all His works, the earth and all it's richness in nature and the stars and moon, the universe, wow, my heart sings How great Thou art! I love your coloring of everything and the popped up eagle is so majestic looking!! Your wind element is perfect for the eagle!

Angela, I love that hymn and it is among those that I often sing to my mom who has alzheimer's disease and loves to hear hymns sung. Your beautifully colored scene with with the forest and eagle are a perfect accompaniment to that verse.
