A Strong Hold

Today I have a card that I'd like to share with you, I created for my cousin who I just found out has been diagnosed with breast cancer.  My heart greatly goes out to her as our grandmother and her mother (my Aunt) died of the same cancer.  It is my prayer that she'll hold onto Christ Jesus the Lord and for he has the strength to hold her fast!  Whatever the future holds for her.
I have used a collection of papers from K & Company and word art by Karen from Paper Craft Memories. 
I created this card also for the following challenges.
Word Art Wednesday- scripture/encouragement
Stampin' Sisters In Christ- Use only a sentiment/no images
Sentimental Sundays- Banners/Pennants and a bonus sketch(which I turned sideways)

P.S. I just read your text under your card (sorry I didn't read that b4 commenting on your lovely card). Saying prayers for your cousin right now. I have a couple of friends who are breast cancer survivors (15 yrs.+) and I pray they detected it soon. But as believer, we have hope and faith that all things work together for good to those who trust in Him! May He heal and provide comfort for the weeks and months ahead.
((Hugs from a sister-in-Christ))
