This is so beautiful. I better try that Z-fold card design soon. We are grateful that you joined our Challenge here at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with the inspiration tat comes from God's Word in Romans 1:17 which says, "For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Have a blessed week.
