Our Daily Bread Designs Dogwood Card

Some weeks I get more prayer requests than others. This week I need to send three sympathy cards and three cards for friends from church having surgery. I've started making multiples of cards to have even more on hand for such weeks.
This card has a sentiment inside that I hope will be an encouragement to the receiver. It has a reminder: "The will of God will never lead you where the grace of God cannot keep you." I used three stamps from the Grow in Grace stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. The focal point sentiment on front has a meaning of grace I'm thankful for. It's arranged artfully with the first letters spelling GRACE: God's Riches At Christ's Expense.

I used the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 184 to design the card. All of the papers are retired and long retired from CTMH. (I'm forever trying to use up more of the paper filling my craft room!) I colored the dogwood image with Copic markers.

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you as you make cards to bless others.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
