To Everything there is a Season...
Hello sweet friends! Today I'm sharing a sneak peek with you for the current Shining the Light Challenge, fall inspiration photos. This card is a sneak peek of two sets being released Oct. 1 at ODBD! One is called Autumn Tree. The second is called God's Timing. The verse is from God's Timing and I loved how well it went with this cute tree. I had fun working with it and went with typical fall colors, using the current inspiration photos for the Shining the Light challenge. I am also linking this to Word Art Wednesday.
I stamped with Memento and colored with Copics, then sponged lightly with pastel chalks for just a hint of background. The base is dark chocolate and the design paper is from MME Lost & Found "Sunshine" and K&Co Fall Harvest (an older pad). The bling is from Hobby Lobby, and I used an Ornare piercing template for my sunrays in the upper corner.
Here are the Copics I used for this little scene:
E49, 43, 44, 57, 55, 31, 35, 37
YR 21, 24, 27
Y13, 17, 19
I love this Scripture, as it helps me remember that not only are there times and seasons for all of God's creation, but as we live our lives, we too go through various seasons. I think as we get older and look back at our lives we see a remarkable pattern of how God has been leading us along, through various experiences that are sometimes joyous, sometimes difficult. There are times for us to learn, times for us to share what we've learned, times for us to be busy but also times for us to be still. There are times we don't understand the "why".... why did He choose to allow this to happen? We can rest assured that every thing has a purpose in our lives and He loves us infinitely!
I hope you enjoyed my card and even though this card is all fall... don't be fooled... fall isn't all that's coming Oct. 1! I hope to see you back here then!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
