Jessica, I agree with Linda about the warmth of this card. I love how you distressed the edges with ink. That is a great sentiment. It made me think of a song I sang in choir in college "He never failed me yet!" Isn't it wonderful that He hasn't failed us and He won't!!! I hope you are having a blessed week!
