God is our refuge and strenth!


I have a friend who's going through some rough times right now, and thought I'd make her a card to lift her up a bit. I knew the exact sentiment I wanted to use too. I tell ya, Verve Plain Janes come in handy often. They always seem to be "just what I needed".

This card has very little stamping. I just inked up the Psalm 46:1 image with Black Onyx Versafine, and stamped it directly on the dp. Now, I have to tell you, I'm in love with "Lost". Not the TV show, but the dp by My Mind's Eye! Glittery fun with yummy colors and patterns.




For this card, I let the paper and the sentiment do most of the work. I just cut out the oval that was already designed into the paper, and cut out the shape with the largest Labels 10 die by Spellbinders. I ink distressed all the edges with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink, added a Martha Stewart punched border, some flowers ribbon and dew drops, and that's about it. Oh, and I added an EK Success border to the edge of the card also.

I hope those of you in the states are enjoying the Labor Day holiday.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Happy stamping my friends!!
Tosh
