Midnight Madness Sketch with Jer.29:11

Hello everyone! Tonight I have a card done for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. This was a great sketch, as always... but I really had to enlarge my center element because I wanted to use this wonderful verse from Verve, Jeremiah 29:11, which says " For I know the plans I have for you, " declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". What a wonderful verse!

My DP is K& Co as is the pretty die cut that I stamped the sentiment on. The brushed gold is from The Paper Co, and the base is Mellow Moss. I heat embossed using Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. The lower edges are punched with an EK Success punch and the little flower elements are also diecuts from the same pack, glitzed up with Magenta Stickles to match the top one which already had glitter. The "hanger" at the top is a Spellbinders Die Cut which I cut and embossed in the Big Shot.

Hope you like this and enjoy the refreshing words from God's Word!

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous card and what an inspirational verse! It goes along with so many things I will be doing this week. I really needed this reminder from our Dear Lord that everything is in his planning. Thanks so much for reminding me.

Wow Grace, this is fabulous! How do you find these challenges, you are the queen of that I think! And that gold embossed edging, it is so smooth, looks like it came from a printer. Always a great verse too.
