He Will Bring You Through It!

Good Evening Friends!

While blogging this evening I spotted a card created for
Though CAS design is not my usual go to ... this
sketch caught my eye ... particularly the card created by Birgit.
So, I felt compelled to join in.

Here is their sketch:

and here is my creation:

Over at the Path of Positivity Challenge their April challenge is
'Beauty of Nature'.  Nothing excites me more than to see all the trees
and flowers come to life in the springtime.  So the above creation
will also be shared on this wonderful site.

Below is my card CASING Birgit's creation.  
If you're not familiar with Birgit Biggan, you are missing out 
on some amazing artistry.  I have loved her design style for years.

My sentiments come from the Inspired by Stamping
'Word of Inspiration' stamp set.
