Mojo Monday 357 Encouragement Card

Today after church and dinner I wanted to play with combining old papers with new. Close To My Heart papers from Scaredy Cat matched one of my old (ok, ancient) papers I wanted to use for a background. I'm not too big on making Halloween cards, but I loved the papers, so I wanted to show my workshop friends how we can make other types of cards with this paper. The Mojo Monday sketch 357 this week was just right for the mix.  I need several Thinking of You cards, so I chose the Verve scripture quote stamp, Psalm 46:1, "God is our refuge and strength, ever-present help in trouble." I find that as I encourage someone else with this verse, I'm encouraged in return. 

I wanted this card to have a more youthful tone by using these geometric papers. I used the Thistle, Black, and Sunset colors from the Scaredy Cat paper pack and mixed it with Pear green and some very old pink. The flowers were cut using Cricut Artiste at 1," 1.3," and 1.6." The Pear strip was embossed using the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder.

Thank you for visiting. May you, too, find strength in God during times of trouble.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
4 Krafty Girlz #24 - Anything goes
ABC Challenge - Q for Quote
Aud Sentiments Challenge #112 - Thinking of You
Mema's challenge - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #144 - anything goes with uplifting sentiment
