SNSDC2 - Psalm 27:14

This week's challenge over at the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge blog is to use this inspiration picture:

This is my first time making a card from an inspiration picture.  Instead of using the colors as my inspiration, I used some of the elements in the picture.  Primarily, I focused on the green boards in the background and the bench.  The rows of books in my card reminded me of the boards and the diecut the bench.

This card uses one of the great verses in the Encouragement Scripture Digi Stamp Set from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  These verses are good to use on encouragement cards no matter what the recipient is currently facing. My husband requested I make this card for a gentleman that has been dealing with physical illness since January.

Here are some other detail pictures and a view of the interior:

I am entering it in the following challenges:
