Inpsirational Scripture Card

I love this scripture verse from Romans 8:28.  It's the perfect inspiration to send to a friend or loved one who needs a little encouragement.
For the verse, I used a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs from their Scripture Collection 1 set.  I embossed it onto some vellum and attached it to the background.  

I created the background with the Anna Griffin Poppy embossing folder by Cuttlebug.  It's one of my favorites.  I inked the folder with Tim Holtz distress inks in pinks, oranges, and yellows/greens, then spritzed it ever so lightly, and pressed it together onto watercolor paper.  I have to admit, I did a little happy dance when I opened the folder!

I decided that the background really needed to show, so I chose to do the verse on vellum.  I refreined from embellishing any further, as the background is quite busy, and I didn't want to take away from it or the verse.  

I am adding my card to these challenges:

  4. I love this idea of embossing the verse on vellum to let the background peek through. It allows the background to shine without taking away from the words. Thank for joining Sunday Stamps this week!
