Joy Fold Card

Both of these cards use the Joy Fold technique. Today's Friday Free for all challenge was to make a card with a flap. They are also for the Stampin' in Sisters Challenge to make a prayer card.

The first one has the first verse of Sweet Hour of Prayer:

"Sweet hour of prayer! Sweet hour of prayer! That calls me from a World of care, and bids me at my Father's throne, make all my wants and wishes known. In season of distress and grief, my soul has often found relief, and oft' escaped the tempter's snare, by thy return, sweet hour of prayer!"

I used the butterfly from Layers of Color Flutterescent set.

The second one has this scripture:

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thankgsgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

I used the little girl from Mark's Finest Papers Thankful for you set. I paper pieced her dress and added lace for her apron. I masked and layered the wheat and corn shocks.
