A card in blue

Hi all you stampers in cyberland. It is Wednesday and it was beautiful today here in Michigan.
I had to work though, so I didn't get to see too much of it.
I needed a sympathy card, so I tried to keep it simple yet attractive. I also love this verse and I wanted to use it here. This verse reminds me that God takes care of my every need and never forgets that I AM HIS!!!
That's what I want to convey to the  family I am sending this to. God holds them in His loving arms and cares about their pain.

The background is Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss. The two  panels are stamped with a wheat stamp in silver ink. Then overstamped with an iris stamp in medium blue. To get that light look, I stamped off on scrap paper, then stamped the panels.  I didn't want the stamping to stand out too much and it shows off a bit more in real life. It's pretty light here in the picture. The silver ink  took on almost a gold look, but when you move the card around, it is definitely silver.

The double circle bottom cut is a Martha Stewart edge punch.
The small butterflies are also Martha Stewart. Bottom layer is the blue of the mats and the top is cut out of scraps from the stamped panels.
Some very small gold bling added too. I can't do a card without some glitz!!!
