Black Tie "Keep my Lamp Burning"

I had some time to play today and since it is Wednesday, I decided to check out the weekly sketch over at Splitcoast. I found it very challenging... but I guess that is why they call it a Sketch Challenge! But, I picked up the new "Keep my Lamp Burning" set from ODBD and went for it.
I've never been disappointed with a set from Our Daily Bread! This is a set I most definitely would have bought (no matter the cost), if I weren't getting it as a DT member anyway. I do love that perk!
Check out the Card Gallery over at the ODBD site. It is full of masterpieces made with this fabulous set!

As you can see from looking at it, the artsy lighthouse image has a space where you can put one of 4 verses. But, you know, that isn't ALL you can do and the gallery is proof! The possibilities are endless!
So, here is the SCS sketch (SC216).

And here is my card. I adore black and silver together. Very "formal" looking, thus my post title "Black Tie".
That's all from me today... I'm going to try and get even more stamping done.
