Do you know someone that is going through a difficult time?  I love this verse from Psalms that tells us to Be of Good Courage.  Sometimes we all need that, right?

The houndstooth background was made with a new set of decorative masks from the Fall Mini Catalog which will go live on September 6.  The set of masks are called Abundant Beauty Decorative Masks (Item 162331) and they include several different masks including a set of "layering masks" that you use together to create beautiful sunflowers.

I was looking for a subtle background for my sentiment and stems from the Courage & Faith stamp set, so designed to use this mask with my blending brush and Fresh Freesia Ink.

To make it pop I added a frame made from the darkest of the Silver Foil Specialty Paper which is available as an ONLINE EXCLUSIVE.  The frame was made with two of the dies from Deckled Rectangle dies, and the sentiment was die cut with another sneak peek product from the Fall Mini Catalog -- Deckled Circle Dies (Item 162286).  I was really excited to get these dies.  The set includes 14 Layering Circles!

The stems were colored with Stampin' Blends (see product list below for colors) and then fussy cut as there are no coordinating dies with the Courage & Faith stamp set.  But if you do not like fussy cutting, just use any stems that you own.

Three Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearls completed the card front.  For a complete list of the current products used on this card refer to the Product List below.

For the inside of the card, I used the mask again and this time outlined the area for the sentiment which is also from the Courage & Faith stamp set.
