Hello my friends!  Today's card is from the inspiration photo below for the Shining the Light challenge
at Our Daily Bread Designs.  For more inspiration, please visit my very talented design team sisters:

Today I have used:  It Is Well With My Soul background stamp
                               Canning Jars
                               Canning Jar dies
                               Spellbinder dies
                               gold/yellow delica beads for flower centers.
I had to draw in the stems because when using die cuts, you can't make them look like they are inside the jar.

Matthew 6:28 "So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?"  God takes care of us so be at peace.

Oh, Robin, I LOVE your inspiration card! I could tell in a second which photo you chose! It's amazing! I love your use of the canning jar with the branch of beautiful blossoms and ribbon around the jar! Great use of the It Is Well With My Soul background too, along with the SB border! I love it, sweet friend! Warm hugs!

I love this card. The dimension in the flowers is wonderful and this song is one of my favorites. On our recent trip to Israel, our group sang this song in one of the marvelous historical churches we toured so it has an even deeper meaning for me than ever. I was singing the song in my mind while I read your post. Thanks for the mood lifting and inspirational card and post.
