My Grace is Sufficient Card

I recently won a $25 gift certificate to Verve Stamps during the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Spring Blog Hop, and this is one of the stamps I chose with my gift certificate. Thanks, Julee! 
I followed the sketch at Viva La Verve and the color challenge on the Verve blog to design this card. It's a little more CAS than I usually do, but I like how it turned out. I was tempted to add some more details at the bottom, but I think this design really keeps your eyes on the scripture. It's such a beautiful verse! If you are feeling weary and weak today, I hope you will take comfort in this truth.
The card base I used is a 5X7 inch white cardstock base. I added some blue washi tape to match the color inspiration along with the hot pink and yellow in the photo. The squares were cut out using Gina Marie Stitched Squares (you can find this set for $10 at
I added a few Studio G buttons to finish off the card. Simple and easy!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
