Be Strong

The Stampin' Sisters in Christ DT has done another awesome job with the scripture:2 Chronicles 7:14 --"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (NIV)
and the challenge to make a card to let someone know you are praying for them. I am so glad for this challenge to remind me that I have a special Sister in Christ who needs comfort and prayer and now I have a card to surprise her with. The first photo has a little ray of sunshine so I took a second one but then realized that the sunshine is God's blessing so I've posted both.

Though this looks pretty simple, I used lots of Stuff:

Stamps: Stamps Happen, G-Rated, Penny Black -- Sizzix, EK Success punch, Bradletz,
Fiskar Border Punch, Prismacolor Metallic Marker,
Cuttlebug folder, Marvy Punch

The image is paper pieced and also colored with watercolor pencils -- I've raised up the little boy's collar with a pop dot for a little dimension
the heart charm phrase is computer generated

Thanks so much for looking,
my hand

Nice card, I do like the sunshine in the first card and your reason for posting it. What a great idea to pop up his collar. It looks like it is blowing in a breeze :o)
