The Bard of Avon...and Health

I love this Shakespeare quote and use it frequently to create get well cards. Today's Ways to Use It challenge on SCS was to 'Frame' it. This large sentiment makes a dynamic statement, don't you think? I used I Brake for Stamps bamboo frame inked and embossed with Tim Holtz distressing products. The quote was stamped on PTI vintage cream paper with VersaFine Sephia ink. I managed to cut into the yummy Amy Butler paper for the background, cutting an extra peony to use on the frame. It was UTEE'ed for dimension.

This card is also for Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge #62 in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Scripture: Psalm 73:26, "My health may fail, My spirit may grow weak, but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever." And that has me thankful for the wealth of my health. You can't buy well-being, it is something that is given to you from above. And our attitudes can be sweet content if we remember that.
My prayer today is that you would feel the peace that good health brings.
