Everything is Beautiful In It's Time

Hello everyone! I made this card for today's Way To Use it Challenge on SCS, Autumn Leaves. We were to incorporate leaves in our design. I also made it for the MMSC23. I used leaves for that page element instead of the fan shapes. It also is for Christian Papercrafts Magazine Bible Verse Thursday Challenge... to use fall colors and a Scripture about seasons.

My base is Papertrey Dark Chocolate. The dp is BasicGrey Indian Summer which I stitched with a vine leaf stitch in chocolate. The image is stamped on dp and embossed in copper and is from Inkadinkado. The leaves are stamped in T Holtz Distress Inks... Scattered Straw, Rired Brick and Pink Needles, then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Yellow Daisy and Bronze. The sentiment is Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 1 and is stamped on white, then sprayed with the Glimmer Mist after sponging fired brick on the outside border. I added ribbon, bling and some tiny strips of paper that I curled on my piercing tool. It is raining today so the inside shot does not show the glimmer to the image, leaves and sentiment but they are so pretty IRL!

Thanks so much for looking!!! Have a blessed night!

What a beautiful card to display some of the beautiful words of truth! I was double blessed because Chris Tomlin (my favorite CC artist) was singing "Glory in the HIghest" during my visit to your blog. God is so good and He certainly does make everything beautiful, including the beauty of His words here on your work and His message in the songs. Thanks for being such an inspiration, Grace!You let God shine through you in all you do.
