Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 161...or trees

Good afternoon stampers! I had a very busy week and missed the challenge this past Sunday at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, but was determined to come up with a card for Miesje's challenge; such a sweet subject about putting our trust in God.

Her chosen verse is Psalm 52:10 "But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's unfailing love forever and ever." Miesje's devotion is on the home page for Stampin' Sisters in Christ.  This also fits one of the Hope You Can Cling To challenges on Splitcoaststampers, challenge HYCCT1203 to use a sentiment with five words on your card. It is hard to see on the top of the card because of the lighting, but I used a sentiment that says, "Peace within makes beauty without," with two words stamps in the leaves of the tree towards the top.

No thoughts beyond Miesje's wise and true words in her devotional. I was inspired by the gorgeous Fall colors in the trees around here, they are beautiful and every bit as bright, and more, than the ink I used in my card. Thanks for looking.

Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Ink: dark chocolate, kaleidacolor Desert Heat
Paper: kraft, dark chocolate, pear, vintage cream
Other: button, prima leaves, twine, gold pen
