Green Blessings Card

When I was a girl our church choir would sing the words of this blessing at the end of each service. I didn't realize the rich fullness of these words until I grew up. Now it's one of my favorite blessings from scripture, Numbers 6:24-26, "The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace."

The stamp and the background die cut are both from Our Daily Bread Designs. The long-retired CTMH felt flowers and "Miracle" and Christmas papers are more of my hoarded stash I'm determined to use up!

May your heart be blessed by the beautiful sentiment!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
Crafty Friends Challenge #54 -  B is for ...Blessing
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining The Light Challenge #284 - anything with ODBD stamps
Simply Create Too - #125 - lots of green

This is so lovely. I love the delicate frame and it's very delicate to use such a long sentiment on the front of a card, but you've done brilliantly. Thanks for joining us at Simply Create Too. Best of luck. Janelle (DT) :)
