The Joy of the Lord

Last Night I just decided I wanted to use this weeks sketch over at Christian Paper Crafts to make a card.  What a great sketch and you can play along by going to the CPC Creative Blog

Then I decided to also add this weeks Bible verse Thursday challenge over at CPC to the list and the challenge for that is to make a project using scripture that would fit the theme of God’s power when we are weak. The reason I chose the scripture of Nehemiah 8:10 is that because of the joy that I have recieved by knowing my Lord as Savior gives me the strength to continue on even in the worst of circumstances.  That joy is true strength even in my weakest moments.  "The joy of the Lord is my strength."

And, when I decided on the ribbon I was going to use, I knew I would be able to join in the Our Daily Bread Stamping Challenge this week, which was to add some lace.  I also made the lace flower with the same lace ribbon.  First try at making it and I think it turned out ok!

So I am excited to be able to play in all of these challenges and I was also happy with the outcome of this card.  It just all seemed to fall into place even though I went to bed a lot later than planned, and am up bright and early this morning.  So here is the card I came up with!

I am just loving this paper which is new in the holiday mini which is available today!  It is called Spice Cake and I have already fell in love.  It adds a little bit of twist to the fall colors theme.
