Sometimes We Just Have to...

Be still...
All of our lives face challenges, and most of us are moving at a too fast and hectic pace. Our minds can get so clouded with all of our responsibilities and dealing with technology...emails, texts, facebook, twitter and our Cricut machines - Lol! Anyway...as we get overwhelmed, we just need to step back, sit down in that chair, be quiet and be still. Sometimes we need to be reminded who is in control. God's got the whole world in His hands, and He's got you!

Now on to the card creation... The printed paper comes from DCWV - the All About Girls stack. I cut the chair from the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge and used my Big Shot to emboss the cushions. I added ribbon, pearls, and a stick pin. The stamp comes from Stampendous - Inspired Verse. For the flourish, I used a stamp from Waltzing Mouse - You're Lovely.

I must confess that after I submitted this card for a challenge, I decided that I should fix it up a bit and add a flower to the ribbon, a mat behind the verse, and use Ranger's Distress ink (tea dye) around all of the edges. Above is the original version, and below is the updated version.

Now I'm thinking of some other things I could do differently, but I'm going to leave it as is and move on to the next challenge! Have a great day and be blessed!
