To God alone be the glory.

When something is marked SoliDeoGloria or SDG, it's a recognition that God is the source of all creativity, and an indication of the author's desire that any glory for the created work should go to God rather than to the author in question.

It springs from the doctrine that all humanity is made in the image of God. God is incredibly creative, as can be seen in a sunset, the detail of a leaf, the filament structure of galactic superclusters, the intricate patterns in mathematics, and so on. Humanity being made in the image of God means that we humans bear God's family likeness; and one aspect of this is creativity.
