For The Joy Of The Lord Is Your Strength!!

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! I have a quick project to share with you today. This is for a dear friend who is going through a rough time. I want her to know I'm thinking of her and praying for her.


All of the papers are from Colorbok Cloud 9. The bottom layer is a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle with the edges sanded and then stitched to the base. The next layer is the same...a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle sanded and stitched to the base.


The gem swirls are from Recollections and the ribbon is from May Arts. The flower is a Spellbinders Rose Creations die, the edges inked with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.


The pink layer is a Spellbinders Labels 13 with the edges sanded to bring out the embossing. The label is a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die inked with Victorian Velvet. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Scripture Sayings stamp set:
