Refuge


I have a friend who is going through an extraordinarily difficult time.  She has been on my mind and in my prayers a lot, so as I was digging through my stamps yesterday, I came across this verse that would be a good encouragement for her.  It’s from Verve - Psalm 94:15 .  It’s one I hope she can cling to.  

I used this week’s Mojo Sketch, as it was perfect for making the Scripture center stage.  I embossed the verse on Navy cardstock, used some stitched dies to accent the design, then coloured and added the flowers from Poppy Birthday to accent with some die cut leaves and paper from Carta Bella (Hello Again).  



I also embossed the inside of the poppy flowers and added some pearls to accent and go with the lace.  Below are the Copics.  You might be wondering where that navy came in?  I used it to colour in the center of the flowers.  It’s a subtle effect but rather than black flower centers,  the tone of the navy ties it into the design a bit better.  



Thanks for coming on by!  I appreciate your visit!

Oh, I love this verse to encourage her! How loving! Your flowers are so beautiful. Love the way you tied in the navy inside the flowers with the navy blocked layer. It's beautifully embossed and has that touch of lace ♥ I hope things get better for her asap!

This is such a beautiful card, Christine! I will have to dig this set out and use it. I have been making cards to send to my sweet cousin who is going through some hard times just now. This will be a perfect sentiment. Thank you for the inspiration!

Christine, what a precious Scripture verse, and I know this will encourage your friend. I love the beautiful papers that inspired your color palette, and what a beautiful take on the sketch with the leaves, pearls, and the lace. She's going to love it. Hugs!
