No place to far.


Good Monday morning. Hope every one had a wonderful weekend.
Psalms 139:9 says "If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast." No matter where we go, no matter the problems, the afflictions, Our heavenly Father is right there with us, His Holy Spirit will lead us, guide us, and comfort us. If we would only believe and trust His Word to us, we would have so much more peace in our lives. Can you imagine Paul just getting beat, in stockades, and he was in prison singing and praising God. I want that kind of faith, that kind of trust.
This card is a 5 3/4 X 5 3/4. I also show how I did the inside of the card, my inspiration comes from Denise who the inside of her cards are as beautiful as the outside.
Stamps: Hampton art "tapestry" that I got from Micheal's for 1.99. SU en-francais on the boarder
Back ground tech. Heated pearl-ex which you can find the instructions here I love how this comes out. This is done with pearl-ex and elmers glue
Paper Bazzil, and SU
Ink gold embossing
Hope you like it, have a great day and think about what I said, for those who read it :).

Becky, this is a lovely card. I do like how the heated pearl-ex technique turned out on your card. It really compliments your image nicely. Okay, you've convinced me to hang on to them. I will probably try this and share the technique with my weekly card group also.

Such a pretty card Becky! You did a great thing stamping the image and keeping it simple so the stunning background can be a showpiece! I love how you tied it in with the verse too. It's sure hard to have that much faith isn't it? We keep thinking we know better than the one who created us!
