Grace for the Humble

"God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." James 4:6

 Crafted for the Christian Paper Craft's Color Monday 114 Challenge. This peacock reminds me of a cartoon where one peacock says to another, "Why should I strut about? What do I have to be proud of; I didn't do anything to get these feathers?"  It's always a humbling reminder to me that everything we do have, every gift, every talent, has been given to us by our gracious heavenly Father. And it has been given to be used for His glory.  He despise the proud but gives grace to the humble. May He give grace that we might walk humbly before Him.

The main image panel on this card was a PAK (Providential Act of Kindness) from a dear CPC sister and after die cutting, I covered it with VersaMark and embossing powder to give texture and dimension.
