Always Remembered, Forever Loved!
Today I'm sharing a card I made for the color challenge on SCS. The colors were real red, old olive and daffodil delight. I came as close as I could with my Copics, coloring this gorgeous morning glory image from the ODBD set, Glory. I added some white opaque gel pen dots to my flowers. I used Carried to Heaven for my sentiment, and punched out some yellow butterflies with a Martha Stewart punch. The lattice frame is from Spellbinders. I rounded my corners with a SU! punch. Each layer is popped up on foam dimensionals, and there are no embellishments so it's pretty flat and mailable!!! I am so happy to be finally getting comfortable in my own skin, so to speak, doing things more clean and simple! While I will always love my layers.... I don't really like one layer cards much.... yet I have come a long way in not having to embellish everything to the hilt! LOL~ One layer cards make me feel like anyone can go to the Dollar Store and get one of them for next to nothing, and I don't want to feel like I'm cheating the recipient of the added care a special hand made card requires. That said... I am finding a sweet spot somewhere between overly CAS and over done and expensive to mail.
That brings to mind a verse that I often think of when I'm creating.... Col. 3:23
"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men."
Well, that's a quick post for today.... I hope you like it and perhaps are inspired in some small way to step outside of your comfort zone, and whatever you do, to do it for the Lord!
I am entering this in this week's Word Art Wednesday ~ always anything goes with their free digi or any encouraging sentiment or Scripture, and this week's Shining the Light Challenge ~ a word challenge: FLOWER - use 4 of the letters in the word flower as the first letters of things on your card:
