Our Lord's Encouragement

I made this card for a challenge I did over on ChristianPaperCrafts (BVT 57). Angie Crockett does the Bible Verse Thursday challenge, and a couple of weeks ago her challenge was to use any verse for encouragement.

I love this verse, and I thought it was perfect for the challenge.

I actually had this copper colored metal praying hands embellishment for a long time. Someone sent it to me literally years ago, and it was just waiting for the right time to be used. I think this was it!

I tried embossing in blue, but in the end silver embossing gave it exactly the look I was after. The rhinestone swirl is something I recently bought and I love it here!

And although these Prima flowers came in a Christmas collection, I think these work very well. I love the glitter on them. I added a topaz colored rhinestone.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my card. I'd love to hear what you think of it!
