Before I share my wonderful card, the season's are changing; in the spiritual realm along with everything else. God is so good that He ALWAYS...yes ALWAYS sends a word when you need it.
Before I share the scriptures of what God led me to...all I can say is, He sent His word and healed them [me], and delivered them [me] from their [my] destruction. Sometimes, we go before God asking Him for direction but want to move before we hear or grow impatient. I serve an amazing, merciful, and gracious Lord.
Colossians 1:11-12 (NIV)
James 1: 2-4 (TLB)
On to the card. One of the Deacon's at my church is celebrating a milestone. I love him dearly and he is such a wonderful person. I know that he will love the card. I had an idea in my head already inspired from the JustRite gallery.
Since his birthday is in the fall, i used lots of fall colors.
I wanted the corners to stand out a bit so I glossy accented them and the frame on the inside.
I used the Spellbinders Antique Frame & Accents. Let me tell you, I wanted this die since I saw it. I tried finding it at Michael's and at Joann's but could not. I finally broke down and purchased it off eBay (which means no coupon), but I am so happy I did...it is so versatile and pretty.
Well, hope you all enjoyed the card and I hope my encouragement can help you in your walk also.
God be praised.
