I have a friend who has asked me to make a card for her pastor who will be having his 40th anniversary on April 11. 

I had a hard time picking out the recipe for this.  I don't make cards for men very often as our family is primarily female.  I have two nephews but that's it.  I wasn't sure if Happy Anniversary is the appropriate sentiment (even though it is an anniversary).  Anyway I wanted this to be religious in nature.  So along with the sentiment on front I have added a scripture on the inside.

The flourishes die I have had for a long time.  I think it was my first one.  I wanted it to be of some substance so I cut out several and glued them together then covered with Glossy Accents to make them shiny.

I hope she is happy with it.  Otherwise I'll be back with a different card for him.

Card recipe:

Paper - Core 'dinations
Die & stamps - Our Daily Bread (set made to go together)
Embossing folder - Darice
Embossing powder - Ranger Super Fine in black
Flourishes - Sizzix & covered in Glossy Accents
Charm - Charm Gallery
Scripture - Word Art Wednesday
