This card I created for a very dear friend, who has been in and out of the hospital for a year. The scripture I chose is to remind him that he can lean on the Lord for strength and protection.  I did not use any embellishments, but stamped the lighthouse an extra time in order to cut it out and pop it up.  Everything but the compass was colored with ink pads and sponge daubers.
