Card for Encouragement

I made this card for a couple in our church that is going for a difficult time right now. The husband has been diagnosed with leukemia, and he is in the hospital with low platelet counts. This has been a difficult time for them both.

 Here is a closeup of the flowers and scripture verse:

This verse is one of my favorites. It says, "For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 8:18.

The flowers are what I like to call a "happy mistake", lol. I wanted to highlight the blue in the dp, so I used my Silhouette to cut out the flowers. I then glued the flowers, only to realize that I had glued the front of the dp instead of the back! OOPS!

Rather than cut out a new set of flowers, I decided to just glitter the front (sticky) side. It actually came out much prettier than it would have, had I not made my "happy mistake".

The dp is from K&Co Life's Journey, cs and pearls are from my stash, sentiment is Verve, glitter is Martha Stewart, flower from Silhouette SD, and ink is CTMH.

I am entering this card in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge -- blue and green.

I hope you have a day full of happy crafting!
