Psalm 119:18

Today I am posting a card that meets the requirements of the challenge at Joan's Touch, which are: must have some items sold At Joan's Gardens, have neutral colors, a corner embellishment and a picture. 

The card base is ivory and on top of that is a textured beige grasscloth patterned paper; next is a piece of kraft paper that has been run through a Paper Studio EF. The picture, which is in sepia tones, is printed from the internet, and the sentiment is generated from my computer and is die cut with a Sizzix Scalloped Oval die, and the edges of the oval are inked in brown. In the upper left corner is a Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco B corner diecut piece. At the bottom is a piece of ecru lace and it is topped off with an ivory double-looped bow that was made with Bow Easy. For an extra feminine touch, three liquid pearls were placed in the lower right hand corner of the picture.

This card is for a lady, but the picture and the sentiment could easily be used for a man's card, particularly if this color palate is used. The kraft paper background could also have a more angular embossed design if the card is for a man. I am telling this to myself for future reference because it is hard for me to come up with masculine themes.  :o)

Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
