Psalm 91

Jesus loves me this I know for the bible tells me so.... my dad used to sing that little song to me when I was very young. The bible is the most encouraging, inspiring, amazing book that anyone could ever read. And on top of that, to know the God of the Bible in a living vibrant and personal way is beyond description.
 Sometimes God uses a scripture from the bible to speak deeply within our very spirit, to give us hope, faith and the trust we need to know that even though we are going through a rough time He will be our refuge, our source of strength and peace in the battles of life.
I made this centre step card for a special couple who are going through such a time. But they'rer facing it all with faith, turning to their God for strength and healing.
I am entering this card into some challenges..
well that little Marianne Design bird die is my newest die and my first use of it.
ALLSORTS challenge, they ask for Autumn Colours, well this copper and brown ticks that box!
CHALLENGES4EVERYBODY Anything Goes
The scripture on the front of the card is from a rubber stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs, they in my opinion produce the best Scripture stamps available worldwide, 
I just wish I could afford more sets!
I wanted to show images of wings in the back ground to represent the feathers (echoing the verse inside the card...He will cover you with His feathers... computer generated)  
I stamped some wings from my psx bluebird and a small eagle stamps onto the front and back of vellum in cocoa brown ink, This allowed the wing image to reverse! then I attached the vellum to the card. 
I used my Spellbinders Parisian accent and motif dies for the copper coloured die cuts, and a scalloped circle for the stamped image.
To finish the card off I used my Marianne Design bird die, I cut it on cream card and used the die as a stencil with the cocoa brown ink, the leaves above are the same die turned round without the little bird.
