Words of encouragement

This is a very simple card using the photo I took the other day for Suzie's day 89: daybreak. I digitally added the text from Psalm 5:3, printed out and then used the photo on the upright of an easel card. - this is for My time to craft 176: easel cards, Chocolate, coffee & cards 9: fancy folds, The yellow piece of paper along the bottom is a snippet from my offcuts - yes, another for Pixie's crafty snippets 13 - the strip of black gems were from Poundland and the black flowery border from stash.

Earlier this month, Crafts by Carolyn forum celebrated its tenth birthday. As part of the celebration some of the forum members set challenges, one of which was Kath's challenge 2, in which she asked us to 'use a photograph on your card, L/O or anything else you would like to make . One restriction...there needs to be more than 1 fold in your item.'

As the photo is of a sunrise, I thought the scripture from Psalm 5:3 was appropriate and I'm linking this for Clearlyistamp 48: scripture.
