Brighter Skies are on their Way!

Hello Delightful friends and family,
Here is a card I made for a friend that is going through a rough time.  I hope it brightens her day!
I love the Scripture on the inside of the card, sometimes when we are going through a time of testing it's good to take time to be still, evaluate our faith walk and see how we are lining up to God's Word and make corrections if necessary or just rest in His loving kindness knowing that this life is a series of hills and valleys and that the Lord is there to walk us through.  I'm so grateful for His faithfulness.

Ingredients: Designer Paper - EP Summer Bliss, Bazzill card stock; Stamps:  Taylored Expressions - Sunny Days (sentiment), Ranger Dylusions - How Does Your Garden Grow (flowers); Dies: Taylored Expressions (clouds, sun, border scallop), Spellbinders (label); Ink: Memento, rich cocoa, scattered straw; Archival, Chrome Yellow. Ribbon & button (my stash); Green cording (Darice)
I just love all the little birds on the background paper! So cute!!

Here is a close up of the details.  I've used Ranger Liquid Pearls (Buttercup, Rouge and Flamingo) and Queen & Co. pearls (green) I've colored the flowers with Copic Markers.  Embossing Folder small dots on clouds (Cuttlebug P.C.)
There's lots of layers on this card!

Here is the inside of the card.  The Scripture verse is from a stamp set called Faith in Bloom (Taylored Expressions)

I've entered this card in the following challenges:

For the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away His face from you, if you return unto Him.  2 Chronicles 30:9
