{Our Daily Bread} Grow in Grace


I am SO privileged to be able to Guest Design for the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog this month!  I so enjoy working with their beautiful Scripture stamps!  My card for today is a simple one.  I colored the poppy from Mother's Day with copics, then framed it with a mat of light green cardstock stamped with the verse from Grow in Grace. I stamped my sentiment on a hand-cut banner and added another banner to set it off, then clustered a trio of buttons in the corner.

I love the reminder to grow in grace.  To plant ourselves firmly in God's righteousness through Christ and then grow to be more like Him.  Full of love, peace and joy.  Patient, gentle and self-controlled... kind, faithful and a lover of what is good.  That is what I would like my character to display, wouldn't you?

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Blessings!

Tricia
