Delightful and Encouraging Challenges!

Hello my Delightful Friends (and family!)
(Scroll down to see the Copic Storage giveaway post!! Entries must be in by June 4th)
I have a wonderful Scripture to encourage you today from Psalm 31:24 and the card I'm sharing also happens to be in answer to 3 challenges this week!! But first the Word of encouragement: "Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord." I love the fact that I don't have to be strong in myself but my strength is in the Lord. He gives me not only the hope I need but helps me to have courage to face whatever difficulty I may find myself in! That is such a blessing and you can have that assurance too when you know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. He is so faithful to meet every need!
Okay here we go with todays inspiration! Three challenges and two are from Christian Paper Crafts (Bible Verse Thursday and Sketch Tuesday). The color challenge is from Play Date Cafe Challenge.

Here is the Sketch I'm following! CPC-ST59

Here are the gorgeous colors this week! Lemon, pale peach and peach. PDCC#32

The paper I've used (and let me tell you I don't do a lot with peach!!) is called PEACH GROVE from the Bay Blossoms Collection from CLOUD 9 DESIGN! It is double sided which worked perfectly for this card and then I used the Yellow cardstock from Bazzill that we call "bling" at the lss because of it's shine!

Other Supplies:

Scripture stamp is from Our Daily Bread Designs , the ink is Palette, black and the brads are Making Memories (small) and Heidi Swapp (large). I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the yellow cardstock with a paisley folder. Other tools: Marvy Uchida scallop oval punch, small butterfly and EK Success border punch. Copic marker to ink around the butterfly: Y38

Thanks for looking today!! May your day be blessed and filled with encouragement!!
