More Pumpkins for James 1:17

Here is the second version of my card using the Scripture from Word Art Wednesday. It also uses the color scheme from Fab n Funky's challenge: Black and Orange plus one color. If you haven't seen the first one, it's on the previous post here.

I mentioned how the pumpkin crop in our area was actually increased by the hot, dry weather that destroyed most crops in our area. What a surprise blessing for those farmers! May God open the eyes of your heart to see the blessings He's given you, especially those that might not be so obvious!

This time, I added a bow with the baker's twine because it wouldn't interfere with the sentiment. This card was embossed with Divine Swirls which also complements the pumpkin vines in the paper. I also simply added the black sparkles to keep the attention on the focal point, the verse.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
