Stars and Stamps VCMP Card 1 - Using Scripture

I made several cards yesterday to play along with Stars and Stamps Virtual Card Making Party. They posted 10 different challenges on Saturday and Sunday. The first one was to make a card with Scripture. That's what I love to do anytime because the card says so much more to the receiver than the words simply printed in the sentiment. I believe that since God's Word is sharper and more powerful than a two-edged sword, His words touch the deepest need in someone's life in a most personal way - just what they need for a situation. I also believe that His Words of encouragement can be very healing. So that is my prayer for this card that will be sent to servicemen or women for Operation Write Home. This challenge is being sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs. It is their challenge for the month of September.


This card uses the Operation Write Home Sketch #123 from May 27th this year. I used a Clear Dollar Digi Stamp, "Christian Sympathy." I love the artistic font and the colors of purple and green were easy to work with. I liked keeping the sympathy card simple, yet elegant with the CTMH shiny gray ribbon and purple sparkles and the Petaloo glittery flower and leaf.

May God bless you with strength in your own times of need.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Operation Write Home/Our Daily Bread Designs  "Virtual Card Making Party" - Scripture cards
Papertake Weekly Challenge  - Anything Goes

This is such a sweet and simple card, Vickie. The colors and sentiment compliment each other so well, and it just really turned out so sweet. Thanks for blessing us by sharing this with us in this week's challenge at Word Art Wednesday. It's always a blessing to see God's Word shared so beautifully, and I pray that He will bless for crafting His precious Word. Have a wonderful week, and thanks for playing along with us!
