Singing Songs of Thanksgiving

A good Sunday morning to everyone.   I know it is not Thanksgiving Day yet, but my songs of praise and thanks are not limited to that one day.  In fact, there probably is not a day that goes by when I do not sing and 99.99% of my songs are songs of praise to my God.   Here is a card with no image, just a verse from the Psalms.  The digital is by Doodle Pantry.

The set has six verses in beautiful fonts.
 The sketch is by Kraft Journal:

The base of the card is Kraft.  I used a scrap piece of designer paper and the larger background piece is digital paper by GKD.  The stamped leaf that is fussy cut is also GKD.  The red die cut leaves that I  ran through the crimper were cut with a Verve die.
Sometimes after cutting out an image or in this case the verse, I run the piece back through the Cuttlebug with the tan mat in order to emboss the edges.  Instead of cutting another contrasting color and putting it behind the verse piece, I distressed the edges with a pumpkin ink and brought a little of that color onto the piece.
