Go Out with Joy!

This morning was a foggy morning in Florida, and the trees were veiled in a lovely mist...the view from our window provided the inspiration for this card.

I love the muted colors of this Basic Gray Indian Summer paper and thought it would make a lovely feminine card to showcase this awesome scripture. I have to laugh...I don't believe in coincidence, and the week that I received this set, Trees of the Field, in the mail, Pastor Cory preached on this very verse. I think God must have a God-sized sense of humor and He uses all kinds of *little things* to get His BIG points across!

I used a pair of nestabilities ovals to cut windows into the patterned paper and some burgundy card stock (courtesy of, then stamped the tree in some stamped-off Memento Rich Cocoa ink on ivory card stock centered inside the window. I sponged lightly it with pink and with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the patterned paper. The layers were adhered with dimensionals to create depth within the window. I used some Kaiser Pearls, BoBunny flowers, and a scrap of burgundy ribbon to frame it and lead the eye from one element to another.

I hope your holidays are filled with joy, peace, and singing...Christmas blessings!
