The card I made turned out to be a very simple design. Since the Bible verse talked about peace, I considered using a tree pattern paper or stamp. Many things in nature (trees, clouds, flowers, etc.) often stop me in my tracks and cause me to think of the greatness of God who created these very things. I had some paper with trees on it but could not come up with a good card layout using it. Then I spotted the dragonfly paper and knew that I had found a winner. I not only love the design but also the blues and browns in the paper. I also love the plaid backside of the dragonfly paper which I used for the cross-pieces. The gingham flower embellishment has been in my "stash" for many years......just waiting to be used on this card!
The Bible verse is Colossians 3:15, "And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful."
