Today I created an 8x8 layout with "my" scripture verse in the new Scripture Collection 7 set! I have SO many favorite scriptures but this one really speaks to me! I pray you love it too! I also used two other ODBD sets--He Will Rise to stamp the crosses on the canvas banner and Don't Worry where I stamped the flower onto sticky back canvas, inked it with distress ink, and then I spritzed it with Glimmer Mist before cutting it out.
