Clothed with Strength & Dignity

I used a beautiful stamp from Verve for this feminine card, Proverbs 31:25.
It says,
"She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future."
The frame die is Cover Plate: Pretty Frame by Papertrey Ink.




And the reverse colors....



A Wife of Noble Character
10Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies.
11Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.
12She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it.
14She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.
15She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.
16She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.
18She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night.
19Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber.
20She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy.
21She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm clothes.
22She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.
25She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.
28Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29“There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”
30Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the lord will be greatly praised.
31Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope it gives you joy!

Thanks for your visit today,

Beautiful cards. That noble woman sure is awfully busy while her husband sits at the city gates with the other civic leaders.
