Birthday Card for a Special Lady

Here's a birthday card for my wonderful Mom-in-law.

I've entered this in the Hero Arts challenge for May. The theme this month is Flowers ~ Coloring with Pencils ~ ATCs. I hit 2 out the 3 with my card.
Stamps used: La Letter, Flowers and Swirls, Find Joy.
The die is a new Nestabilities Labels 20.
The orange pp is from the Sweet Threads collection by Basic Grey.
The background stamping is done with Pumice Stone Distress ink.

~ Isaiah 26:3-4 ~
You will keep in perfect peace
all who trust in You,
all whose thoughts are fixed on You!
Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the Eternal Rock.

This verse is for my sweet friend Jacqueline, I'm thinking of you and praying for you today!

Thanks for your visit today
