The Lord is my provider

This is for the Technique Lover's Challenge to heat emboss on top of dry embossing. I heat embossed gold over the dry embossed border on the panel behind the dragonfly. It didn't turn out exactly how it was supposed to, but I like how it looks. I used Mark's Finest Papers NATURE'S POSTAGE and IN THE FOREST. I colored the image with prisma colored pencils and added glamour dust.
The Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge was to make a blue and green card to remind us of the 23 Psalm. As our shepherd and provider he finds us lovely green grass and blue water to rest by.

Psalm 23
1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

(I posted the King James version because that is what I memorized as a child, and it brings me comfort to read it in this version.)

I made this for a friend of mine from church who has been suffering from seizures. The only way the doctors can control the seizures is to heavily medicate her, which only gives her a couple of hours a day that she is even awake. I just wanted to send her a card to encourage her.
