Happy 50th Anniversary!

Good Morning, Crafters!

I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post, but Harvey has changed a lot of things here in Texas, and some priorities have come before posting on my blog.

My sweet friend asked me to make a 50th Anniversary card for her to give to her husband (such a sweet couple!).  I thought a lot about its construction; most cards I looked at for ideas were those that someone else would send to the couple, so it took a bit of contemplation to come up with this card.

The base over the gold layer is a Stampin' Up Happy Heart EF which was highlighted with gold ink; also used were Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and Vines of Passion dies. I found some lovely gold and white patterned paper in my stash that added some pizzaz!  :o)  The trim at the bottom of the card came on a roll that I found at Michael's.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I always appreciate your visits. As always, I pray for God's highest and best to you today and every day.  

Many rich blessings, Ginny B.

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 

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

Numbers 6:24-26  May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.  NLT

2 Corinthians 5:15-20
15 He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.

16 So we have stopped evaluating others from a human point of view. At one time we thought of Christ merely from a human point of view. How differently we know him now! 17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. 19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.  NLT
