Bible Verse Challenge Card

I was reading my Bible the other day when this scripture just jumped out at me. I grabbed my journal and wrote it down. It seemed to be the perfect scripture for a birthday card I wanted to make for a lady in our church who is one of the strongest people I know. I know that her strength is not from within herself, but because she relies on God to strengthen her.
I am so thankful to serve a God who is always there for me. Who gives me strength on a daily basis and a peace that passeth all understanding. This isn't just a nice idea, it is a PROMISE from God to His people. What an awesome God!!! I am humbled daily to think that He loves me and cares about the littlest things in my life. I honestly don't know how I could make it through the day without His strength and peace. He is so very, very good to me.
Here is a close-up, I wanted to show off the shimmerz on the flower. I colored a cream colored Prima flower with Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz. I printed the scripture on cardstock. I'm sorry, I don't remember the font I used. I always forget to write it down. I guess I need to work on that.

Supplies:

Paper-Papertrey White, Dark Chocolate, Basic Grey Sultry
Accessories-Computer generated scripture, curved rectangles nestibilities, dk. chocolate ribbon (Papertrey), Prima flower, Pink Poinsettia Shimmerz, adhesive pearl (K & Co.), Cuttlebug Vintage Die

Have a fantastic day!
