ODBDSLC252-Anything Goes With Scripture

Good morning!
This week's challenge is an easy one!! Anything goes with Scripture!
ODBD stamps used: Good Man, Flourish Label Borders
ODBD dies used: Flourished Star Pattern, Vintage Labels, Vintage Flourish Pattern, Boho Background.
I've used a lot of dies on this one but sometimes when I do elegant looking cards, it is needed.  I love how these all work together to create a card I could give to any of my friends for almost any occasion.  This verse is a promise that I hold dear in my heart. God knows us by name!  He loves us and has a plan for us!
The new Boho Background die goes wonderfully with all the other ODBD label dies.    I used one of the Flourish Label Border stamps for added interest on the large ivory die cut panel (it has little dots all the way around it).  To finish my card I used two strips of lace and some gold metallic ribbon.
Thank you all for visiting!!

The random prize winner will be posted on our next challenge post. Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.

The verse on this card is special to me.  It is a promise to me from God.  But not just for me, this promise is to all who will allow God to lead their lives.  He has a plan for us but He doesn't force His will on us.  He has given us free will and a lot of people lead their own lives, do their own thing. The thing is, we can only see this moment in time (and the past) but we do not know what will happen in the next moment.  We can make our plans for tomorrow but tomorrow is not guaranteed to us.  Why not let God (who knows every hair on our head, knows all the days accounted for us Psalm 139 & Luke 12:7) lead your life.  Believe me, His plans are good and He loves us with never ending love, He gives good gifts to His children. We walk in the dark, not knowing what will come.  He has the flash light, He shines the light and leads, all we have to do is follow.

What a gorgeous card Robin!! The gold and white with all the texture is so elegant and frames the verse beautifully!!! The verse is a real comfort to all who believe!! It is nice to know that our plans belong to Him and not us. God does indeed have a purpose for our lives and a plan for our future whether it be bad or good in our eyes, it is a plan to grow us closer to Him. Have a blessed day my friend!

Oh, such a gorgeous and elegant card, Robin! And it really popped in today's color challenge gallery! I love this Scripture verse as a reminder that no matter what God brings into our lives, it's always for our ultimate good. And it's a real challenge at times when things aren't going well. But those are often times we grow more closer to Him. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card with your gorgeous dies and fabulous ribbon! And thanks for sharing some precious thoughts! Hugs!
