Mojo Monday 386 Encouragement Card

Here in northern Missouri we've had two incredible warmer days, but we're getting rain and snow right now with the prediction of below zero temps again tonight. But in this brief respite I noticed trees and flowering bushes with swelling buds, the promise that spring really will come soon. So I've been using spring papers, feasting my eyes on their refreshing colors after all the monotonous grays and browns of winter. So I have several posts with these amazing Graphic45 papers, Verve sentiment, and a little Close To My Heart paper and embellishments.

Here's my Mojo Monday Tall and Skinny card for this week with this Verve sentiment:

"Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Psalm 31:24

I used a CTMH woodgrain embossing folder to represent the wood in the trees and shrubs in my yard swelling to bloom, hopefully soon! For you who have been overwhelmed with snow lately, like the verse says, "take heart all you who hope in the Lord," spring will soon be here!

 I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Come and Get It - lots of layers
Tuesday Throwdown #233 - anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #172 - anything uplifting
