It has been a while since I have had time to stamp. We have had truck issues, which aren't worth talking about save to say they are finally over! Yay!
Today's card is for the technique lover's challenge on splitcoast stampers, this is TLC212. Claire or waltzingmouse in Ireland generously shared her technique to create a beautiful knotted ribbon frame. Here is her blog, check out her beautiful creations.
Ever since I received this set, Clear Dollar Stamps Christian Sympathy, I've wanted to create a card using the saying about God's comfort within the Spellbinders bird die. When I went through a dark time in my life, many years ago, I clung to Psalm 57:1b, "In the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast." I usually like the NIV version of the bible, but for psalms and Isaiah and a few other books, I really like the King James version, it is beautifully poetic. So in this dark time I would picture myself as a little bird, hiding under God's wings, fully protected and comforted. So this saying seemed so fitting for inside of the bird, tucked under God's wing.
I used the SU Such a Tweet wheel on the brown cardstock with SU vanilla and then Irridescent Ice EP over it, so it shimmers nicely, you just cannot see it in this photo. I also sewed seed pearls on the ribbon knots and the ribbon was just a lucky find in the bottom of my sewing box. Thanks for looking.
