And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Jesus is the Reason

I am here to share a quick post with you. 
Before I start talking about the card you see, I want to remind you that today is the LAST DAY you will be able to get your FBD sentiment freebies. Yes, the 12 Sentimental days of Christmas is almost over! And there are over 5 in the shop for you today! Stop by this POST to find out more!

I created this gift set by request for someone at my daughters dance school using the
Fresh Brewed Designs Digital Stamp

I tried to keep the cards simple and the colors light to make the image the main focus of the card.
I printed the sentiment on the background paper, then embossed it with a snowflake embossing folder then I sanded it down a little. It gives it a very soft distressed feel. The image was cut with a nestabilities die cut and colored with prismacolor markers.

I added glitter to the edge (white marble coarse glitter by Martha Stewart). My tip for adding the strip of glitter is to use double sided tape, attach it to the place you want it to go and sprinkle your glitter over it, press it into the tape and brush off the excess. Voila! :)

here is a photo of the set:

and here is the sentiment I used for the background. Notice it is not exactly straight on the right side...
that was Perfectly hid behind the image I think :D

I hope you get the chance to use it ...
don't forget there are more freebies... read about it here

Have a beautiful and blessed day!
