Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for this week was to use Scripture on your card. You can find out all the details and great inspiration on their blog HERE .

Our Youth Pastor and his wife are moving back to his home town to work in areas that have been effected by the bad economy.  He will be truly missed in our Church.  This is the card I made for their going away and liked this verse for the big change in his work that God has lead him to do.

Our Daily Bread Designs-- The Mighty Sea stamp set for the Verse

Spellbinder Cross Collection die set, used Black Cardstock for the base cross and for the one I popped on top of it I used Grafix's Metallic Foil Board

Spellbinder Labels Nine, to get the black matting I just traced outside the die and cut it out free hand
Spellbinder Deckle Rectangles for the verse

EK Success Nostalgiques, Attic Collection paper

The corner stickers were gold to start out with as well as the charm on the verse, so I used Adirondack Silver Alcohol ink Mixatives on them so they would better match the cross.

We had a Beautiful morning, mostly cloudy and 69 degrees so I just had to get out there and walk first thing, oh how I love cool mornings!!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful work Connie! I love the silver you used for the cross, just perfect as the focal point.

We've had cooler mornings too, and you can start to feel the first hints of fall. I love those cool and crisp mornings!

So hard to lose a Youth Pastor. And, so kind of you to make a card for them. Real elegance and masculinity together. Love the little charm too.
