Be Still And Know That I Am God

My most memorial times, my most peaceful of times is when I am in the country with no houses for miles, seeing rolling mountains, wide open fields with wild flowers dancing in the wind. It is there that the awesomeness of God is so present. His power overwhelming, His creation breathtaking. It is there that I have learned PS 46:10"To stand still and know He is God"
This is my sketch challenge for Paper craft Planet.
Stamp, Stamping Up "summer by the Sea" paper pieced the dress and hat, used flower soft on the flowers.

This is a really pretty card. I'm not a great colorist (yet) so I love paper pieceing (did I spell that right? LOL)!

This is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets!!! I love the way you added polka-dots to the dress to tie in with the ribbon and background - too clever.

btw - the card that you commented on on my blog was not mine. It was a card by my blogging friend: Jerri Jimenez. I only WISH I was that talented!!!!!

Jill Haddad said...

ooops - sorry - missed the part where you said you paper pieced the dress and hat. Still like the polka dots though!!!! LOL!
