I hope you had a good week. I made this card a white ago and just got around to finishing it off. I embossed this lovely flower stamp from Unity called Insightful Meadows with white embossing powder. Then I used my Brusho Crystal Colours Turquoise and Sea Green. The Brusho does all of the work and creates this lovely background. I wanted to add some texture so I found some old seed beads just to give it a different look. I love to experiment with different things.
The God's Timing sentiment was stamped with the Hero Arts Ombre Ink this one is the Pool to Navy. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and used a coupon. I am not sure if I like it I need to play a little more with it. But the idea is really nice where you have instant ombre without having to do it yourself.
I love the end result of this card. I hope you like it too. I so need to send this card to myself ha :) timing is a funny old thing. Waiting is hard for me. As I am sure it is for most of us. I have some things in my life I want to happen. It is hard to wait. But I know there is a perfect timing for everything. It is true God's timing is perfect and I just need to trust it. Easier said than done though don't you think?? Take a flower and all that it goes through to become one. The seed is still at work under the earth before it emerges into the light . We see the part that pops through the soil, but lots of things have to happen before it gets to that stage we just don't get to see it. Everything will fall into place when it is the right time to do so and not a minute before.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
