Mojo Monday #293 - with Wood

This week as my husband and I traveled we heard some wild weather stories in Minnesota (snow on Saturday and temps over 93 degrees on Tuesday) and saw the devastation of Texas towns by tornadoes. Tomorrow is supposed to be our first day of severe weather with the possibility of tornadoes here in the Kansas City area. I do a lot of praying in tornado weather. I chose a verse from Psalms to remind myself and others that God is our refuge who can give us rest from our fears. I also chose that verse to go with the leaf because trees and leaves provides shade or shelter.

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch to make this masculine Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge card using wood designer paper and wooden embellishments.

I started with the wood patterned paper from My Mind's Eye (Dilly Dally) and chose coordinating colors from that. The wooden leaf, stem and buttons are all from Close To My Heart. I inked their edges with some Brown Bag ink. The Psalm I used is from  Scripture Collection 2 at Our Daily Bread Designs, stamped on some Basic Grey dp.  The cranberry dp and cs are from Close To My Heart and the light background is really old K&Co (that I've hoarded). I always wonder when I try to make a masculine card if I should add ribbon or not. I'm open to your comments or suggestions.

May God bless and keep you safe in trying times. May you feel the comfort and protection of resting in Him.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Mojo Monday #293 - sketch
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #154 - Wood or stone
Word Art Wednesday #80 - anything goes with Scripture or uplifting/encouraging verse
