It is Well at Dawn and all the time!

Hello my friends!  I have a quick card to share today.  I entered this into the SCS inspiration challenge today, which was to find your inspiration from a wonderful photography site, Better Photo.   I chose this photo, because I loved the hues in the lovely water scene at dawn!  I also wanted to play in this week's H-E-A-R-T challenge over at Let Your Light Shine challenge at ODBD.  For this challenge we were to use at least 3 things that started with any of the letters in the word HEART.  I used Hymn, Embellishments, Airbrush, and Twine.

I used Our Daily Bread designs It Is Well With My Soul Hymn BG, and airbrushed it with Copics.  I used The Mighty Sea for my focal point, stamping with Memento and coloring with Copics.  I piereced around the edges, added some twine and sea shell charms, and left it simple for a masculine card. 

This passage comes to mind as I ponder the words of this wonderful old hymn:
Isaiah 43:2
“When you go through deep waters,
I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty,
you will not drown.
When you walk through the fire of oppression,
you will not be burned up;
the flames will not consume you.” (NLT)

Trusting that even if you are in the deep waters right now... that God fills you with His peace and you can truly say, "It Is Well With My Soul".

I am linking up to the following:

Grace, Love this set and can't wait to get mine and play with it. Your card is truly inspirational, I can almost feel the breeze of the sea on my face as the music plays softly. How appropriate all this is as I sit to read for our Bible Study later "If You Want to Walk on The Water, You've Got to Get Out of The Boat".

Hi, Grace! Thank you for your kind comments! I love getting to know others by asking a question and reading their answers. I can't imagine having a reaction so severe to a spider bite like you have! I know my daughter and grandson got hot red welts about 3" in diameter when they were bit by a 'squito. Even spaghetti sauce on their cheeks made them turn red and get little welts. Very sensitive skin!

Happy Valentines Day!
