Praying for You Card

Today's card is for a dear friend whose brother is nearing death. She is going through such a hard time because her sister passed away last year and she is suffering from much sorrow during this time. I made a card for a few of her friends to sign, just letting her know that we are lifting her up in prayer.

I started out by embossing a piece of blue paper; I can't remember what the folder was, but it's a moot point at this time because all the glitter has obliterated the pattern! My guess is that any embossing folder would have worked just to add some texture.....  smile.

I ran a semi-folded piece of white tulle from top to bottom on the right side of the card. It is also hard to see because of the glitter, but maybe the intention will add some sort of subtle interest. 

Tools used:

Spellbinders:  Decorative Labels Eight, Bitty Blossoms, Spiral One Blossom
Memory Box:  Lorelai Leaf
Sizix:  Botanical Builder
Martha Stewart:  Large Leaf Punch
Cheery Lynn:  Mini Fanciful Flourish
Anna Griffin Cuttlebug:  Embossed Sentiment
Blue Ink
Glitter
White Tulle
Embossing Folder
Blue and White Tripple-Looped Bow using ribbon from my stash





Lots of glitter. It's a little easier to see the tulle in this picture:

Romans 10:9-10
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

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
