God is our refuge...

I made this card quite some time ago but I hadn't used Mendi in forever (or Mindy as I like to call her) so I dusted it off to make this background...

I really wanted the background to show through, so I added this Verve scripture sentiment on a Mat Stack and kept it pretty simple so that the background could really stand out.  Most of those colors you see are Amuse (fantastic...yeah I've said it before!) inks except for the red which is PTI's Pure Poppy.  

Keeping this short and sweet!  Off to get my toes done today!  It's something my SIL and I do once or twice a month during the summer so we can have cute flip flop feet!  OK that and I like the hour of kid free time!  Just sayin.... ;)

Hope you are all having a good day so far!  Thanks so much for coming by!

Love this - your sentiment label IS a refuge in the middle of Mindy's busy-ness! Perfect!

Such a pretty card, Laurie! This is my absolute favorite verse, so I'm a bit partial to this card. ;)

Wow! You are just so creative and your color choices, awesome. Fabulous card.

Your universal appeal is evident in this card and everyone before it. ThIs is colorful, on trend, well designed, and well made. I could give this to someone both old and young, a CAS lover, but also one who makes elegant cards. I am not articulating well well what I am trying to say here, but I hope you get what I am trying to say here. :)
