Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning on this beautiful October day.

Holly is sharing a card she made with Pastor Appreciation Month in mind. However, we must remember these cards we are sharing are also appropriate for so many more that just pastors, but all those who serve us in so many and various capacities all year round. Holly’s card has a beautiful fall theme – lets take a look:

This is simply lovely with a beautiful verse from scripture that I love.

This verse reminds me of one of our pastors who used to quote it often. And he was truly a good and faithful servant.

Holly created this lovely background by sponging on various shades of yellow, orange and red. I love the warmth of autumn that it exudes!

She then white embossed the leaves and sentiment on top of the background.

Simple. Easy. Fun. Stunning!

Holly claims this is the most clean and simple card she has created in her life – LOL!

Well, Holly, I think you have a newly found talent!

She added the drops using Glossy Accents, which are super lovely. But omitting them gives you a totally flat card for mailing, which I know is a plus at times, too!

Thank you so much, Holly. We absolutely love your clean and simple beauty!


You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.
