Masculine Challenge ~ His Mercies Are New Every Morning

I think a lot of crafters would agree that masculine cards in general are a challenge.  My added challenge this weekend was that my craft room is totally packed up for home repairs.  But I was blessed with a few hours of crafting time with friends and pulled out several envelopes of single card kits that I'd received quite some time ago.

As I worked through the sorting of the papers, ribbons, and sentiments I was reminded how generous this friend as always been with sending out such nice Happy Mail.

I selected two pieces from the combined stash and added some of my own to make today's Masculine Card.

 The silhouette of the fisherman is printed on thick cardstock, I added the Copic coloring water shades and sunrise/sunset shades and die cut the stitched edge.  The Scripture from Lamentations 3:23 was also in the gifts.  I added the peach stars background paper and mounted all of the elements onto a standard A2 Bright Blue card base to complete my card entry. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
