January challenge for my Faith based blog group

Kelly hosted the first monthly challenge for our new formed Faith Based Blogging Group and she asked us to reflect upon the book of Genesis for our inspiration. We were also to use at least one of these colors: blue, yellow, green, and/or brown. I used yellow, blue, and green. I embossed my white cardstock and then did a direct from pad adding the yellow to the embossed portion. Then I colored in the unembossed area with one of my blue copic markers. I diecut the green with a spellbinder leaf diecut and then  I stenciled my green ink onto the leaves. I added the handwritten words of Genesis 1:3-4.  I thought about how important God's light is to our world. It is only through God's illumination that we grow and become what we are created to be. That is what the leaves represent in my design. In these first few verses of Genesis, we see His intentions are that distinct seperation of light and darkness. He wants us to stay in the light reflecting His light in this world never to be overtaken by the dark. And the Light is good!
