Another scripture card

Just like buses - you don't see one for ages and then two come along together!

When I made the previous card I printed the scripture verse on a piece of white card to begin with and then realised that I wanted to use cream, so I put the white one to one side. I thought I might as well use it straight away, so here is another card for Word art Wednesday 26 and Scripture Thursday linky part (Little bird blessings) 27. I distressed the die cut oval with stormy sky DI.

Once again I've used offcuts - this tim from the Papermania Persimmon collection - just right for another entry for Pixie's crafty snippets 19 - I used the sketch for Eat sleep stamp 171, which was just right for using snippets:

I used a ready embossed card blank to add a bit of interest. I think this would be suitable to send to a man, so it is for:

Ooh-la-la 104: make it manly
Cute card Thursday 215: one for the boys
Sparkles 31: men only

This is also for:

Craft your passion 109: torn or distressed edges
Creative card crew 10: sentiment as focal point
Card a day: thoughts and prayers - sympathy cards (inside insert says 'with deepest sympathy')
Raise the bar 103: report cards - text on your card
Wags n whiskers 78: distressing
Corrosive 148: the man, the myth, the legend - Tim Holtz - I used distress ink
Truly scrumptious 79: distressing & die cuts/punches
Tammy scraping corner 9: show me your punches and/or die cuts
Top tip Tuesday 76: clean and simple
Cutie pie 17: monochromatic
Stampavie and more 167: monochrome
Aud sentiments: anything goes
Digi doodle shops best 106: anything goes
Great impressions 3: anything goes
2 sisters 90: anything goes
Just keep on creating 2: anything goes
Creative Mondays (always crafting) 7: anything goes
Make it Monday 88
