Mojo Monday and Divine Design Challenge

Today's Monday Mojo sketch provided the inspiration to make this month's Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge. I just finished reading Humility: True Greatness by C. J. Mahaney. (My book club is reading it this month.) It's a great book and I highly recommend it. C. J. Mahaney offers some advice on how to weaken pride and cultivate humility in our lives. Number 14 is identify evidences of grace in others and number 15 is encourage and serve others each and every day. It is in the discussion of encouraging others that he encourages the reader to memorize Ephesians 4:27 and to take it with you into your many conversations day by day. So I chose this verse for this month's Divine Design Challenge.
I used my computer to print the verse. The words "Good" and "Grace" are printed in baja breeze (I used RBG color to match). I wanted those 2 words to stand apart - just to help get the point across.
Perhaps if I have time I can make a couple more of these to give to my friends in the book club. Maybe I can make it like blog candy for them...a "treat" for reading my blog.
What did I use on the card: Cardstock - Chocolate chip, baja breeze, white, and Parisian Breeze Specialty Designer paper. Ink - baja breeze and chocolate chip markers, kiwi kiss re-inker and blender pen. Accessories - 5/16" brown brads, large scallop punch, cricut to make circle.
Last Word - Read the book if you have the opportunity.
