This weeks challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is to use multiple layers, build up your layers..."stack" 'em up! I counted and I think I have at least nine layers! This card took me quite a while to make...and I really had to think it through before I did it. I raised up some of the layers on Pop-dots or foam squares so it really has more demension than some of my cards. The top layer is about 1/2 inch off the base paper.
Our hostess this week is Traci and the scripture verse she chose was Ephesians 4:29.
"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
What a great reminder for all of us to be careful about what we say. Our speech is to express what is in our hearts. Our desire should be to edify others, not harm or tear down or offend. We should especially not want to offend our Lord with foul talk or slander or lies. Instead, our goal should be to build others up!
Just imagine if we all did that all the time! The body of Christ would be strengthened and God would be glorified! Thanks, Traci, for the reminder and inspiration!
