Love Each Other


I'm back after a long, unintended hiatus from card making.  Don't you hate it when life gets in the way of your hobbies?  This card was inspired from a sermon I heard at my church recently.  The sermon was based on Romans 12:18 which is about being a peace with everyone as much as possible.  The pastor mentioned that it is not always possible to agree with everyone on everything but to treat everyone with love and respect as Christ would.  It is particularly important that believers try to be at peace with others in the body of Christ, even if it means agreeing to disagree. I don't have a stamp with Romans 12:18 so I used my stamp with John 15:12.  I think this verse correlates to the sermon well.

To make this card an autumn feel, I used rich earthy colors and leaves.  It was fun to pull out my old Cuttlebug leaf dies.  I used a little bit of gold Smooch paint to add a little shimmer to the leaves.  The sketch is from the Viva la Verve February 2012 challenge.  Even though I missed the challenge by a couple of months I still like the sketches.
