Card for a Friend.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting again

I wanted to make a card of encouragement for a friend who was taking a step of faith, and this is the result.

I started off with the main image, which I had downloaded from Karen Murray's blog PaperCraft Memories, from her WORDart series.

I sponged the edges with gray in and mounted it onto gray card stock, and then tied some bakers twine across the bottom - some of my stash from a shopping spree at SENZ (Stamp Expo New Zealand) last week.

This was mounted onto a base which had been decorated with some dp, and then I added some perfect pearls (more stash)

The final touch was this rose which was in a RAK from Sue McMahon of McMahon Five when I was on her DT.

I am linking this to:

Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.

Card recipe:
Card: Grey
Stamp: digi from Papercraft Memories
Ink: vivid Cobblestone
Accessories: Prima rose, Prima dp, Romantique, bakers twine.

Maxine: This is absolutely beautiful. I also love the verse. It's not always easy to "commit thy way to the Lord, and trust in Him". Sometimes, we try to do things our own way and our faith falters. This is when we learn just how much we really need Him. Thanks for reminding me of this beautiful truth from His Word. It's such a blessing being part of Word Art Wednesday where I am also blessed through the art people share, and I pray that you all are blessed as you create and share it. Thanks for participating with us. You are apprecied SO MUCH for this, and for sharing from your heart. I just prayed for you, and I really look forward to seeing more of your beautiful art!! Thanks for creating beause He created you to be creative!
Hugs and blessings to you,
