Clearly Inspired Challenge #57 - Things with Wings

Today's challenge at Clearly i Stamp, Things with Wings, has so many possibilities - birds, butterflies, bugs, angels, or fairies! I chose one of our cute owl images to make a card of encouragement. I used the sentiment - owl be praying for you - because, to me, that's the most helpful thing I can do for someone in need. A hospital in our area did a study a few years ago and found that patients who were prayed for recovered much faster, more completely, even if they didn't know there were others praying for them! I believe in taking every need to God in prayer because I've seen him provide marvelous answers over the years.

I used the design from Freshly Made Sketch #46 and the new Moonlight paper with owls from Close To My Heart. I cut the honey and green shapes using the new Cricut Artiste cartridge.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
