Hubby Birthday: Ephesians 4:29

Happy Birthday Jerry! He got the card yesterday which was his actual birthday. He loved the card and even counted the layers! Well, happy Sunday and welcome back for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

This week the always sweet Traci is our challenge hostess and brings us the  verse from Ephesians 4:29.

"Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."
This is such an important verse, not just for the young but for all. I tell students all the time to use nice words to each other. We should always use our words for good - even "casual" joking can be very painful to the person on the receiving end. "Sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt you", is a very wrong statement! In fact we can heal from cuts and bruises but words can hurt for a very, very long time!
This card was made with a great masculine set designed by Tami Mayberry called Masculine Tags.

The challenge this week is; build it up with lots of layers. I hope you can see some of the layers on this card.

This week our sponsor is Tami Mayberry - I love her stamps and this card was made with the stamp set you could win!

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.
