Ariana Mother's Day Card

Proverbs 31 has always challenged me to be the amazing woman described in the verses. Now that I'm in my 60's I have enough wisdom to know I won't always live up to all the standards, but I also know that God has created us to be unique individuals, many variations of this godly woman, and that His Spirit can help us to live a godly life to glorify Him.  Today's Mother's Day card has one of the last verses from this chapter:


"A woman who fears the Lord is to be praised! Proverbs 31:30"



The bottom two diecuts are from Cricut Artiste. The punched scalloped circle was just the right size for the stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I used two CTMH design stamps on the bottom layer to fill the right and left sides.  I have way too many brads, so I attached four of them to match the light blue in the paper. The CTMH crocheted flowers have CTMH button centers in two shades of blue.


If you'd like to use one of the Mother's Day verses from Proverbs 31, you can find them with many different translations here.


I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Your M Day card is lovely. Just the right balance of elements. I really like it.

I like your other cards as well. I like "clustering" a number of objects.
