For the D Man

   Another masculine card!!!

It's for the D Man

     This card is for the D Man.  I call him D for anonymity.  D Man is on my yearbook committee.  He's a serious young man who loves God's word with a passion, and defends it with certainty!  I hope he likes this card. 
   God gave me the idea to start a yearbook committee for our homeschool group.  I created the yearbooks last year and the older kids helped assemble them. This year I delegated other tasks to the students.  They were given photo assignments, and my friend/helper Esther requested they write articles.  

I based D's card off of the yearbook tags I made. 
These signified "Official Yearbook Business".
He took his home every month.  I think he liked it. :)
  Our Daily Bread's On Assignment Challenge 33  is getting another entry from me.  I paper pierced a little around the Bible verse.  I am also submitting this to Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #13 Impression Plate Tricks #2 , since I practiced the impression/embossing technique again!

    With so much going on with this's nice to have a focal point.

    I also want to add that I tried something different from the last time I used this ODBD lighthouse.  I white embossed half of the image....hopefully capturing how light isn't "All or nothing".  

    I hope he understands all the little messages I scattered here.  He is very serious about his photography, so I added "create".  I pray D keeps his strong faith in God.   Psalm 18:28 reminds us that the Lord keeps our lamps burning.  HE turns our darkness into light.  We were once darkness, but now are light.;)  Ephesians 5:8

Congratulations D Man!
