This is my card for SC429 on splitcoaststampers.com located HERE. I used scrap strips, a piece of corrugated cardboard and a strip of words that I had made for another card recently. The center panel is cut from Kraft with a Spellbinders Petite Oval that I ran through the Cuttlebug after putting Ranger Distressed Vintage Photo on one side. The butterfly is cut from a scrap with a Spellbinders die.
The Reason Behind the Card
A close acquaintance of ours committed suicide last night. As I made the card, I tried to figure out the mind and heart of a person who would do that, and what could have been done to prevent it, if anything. I am thinking he must have lost all hope for various reasons. Maybe he felt God could just not forgive something he had done or maybe he couldn't forgive himself. I only know that losing all hope would be the worst thing in the world. There is always hope with Jesus, and if only I could get this across to people who don't understand it. The whole world can be against me, but Jesus is always FOR me and always there to comfort and encourage. I think I am still in shock over our friend. The card for myself will have nothing but a question mark inside and I will always wonder.
