Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge 165

This is my first Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge on the design team, it's so exciting! Join us at the Our Daily Bread Designs blog for details on the challenge.
I made this card for myself as much as for my friend, who's been going through a hard time. I need to continually be reminded not to worry and to give all of my cares to the Lord! Hopefully, this will bring her comfort in her difficult time, as it did me in making it!
Now for the card, I had this crazy idea to frame the Quatrefoil Pattern die and layer on designer paper. The reason this is a crazy idea is because I don't consider myself good at measuring and cutting, weird beause I've done a little quilting in the past, anyway, I managed to cut out the frames with the help of my paper cutter and you can see the result peaking out behind the doily, which is layered under the ODBD Crochet Circle and this inspirational verse. You'll see some antique sponging, embossing folder, and seam binding ribbon bow in the mix also.

Our Daily Bread Designs supplies:

Crocheted Circle Plain

Scripture Series 3

Quatrefoil Pattern Die

Other Supplies:
Spellbinder circles, embossing folder, seam binding, doily die, distress ink.
Many Blessings,
