No Matter the Weather

Don't you love waking up to sunshine?  I just feel more energized when the skies are clear and I see the sun rise.  Here in the Pacific NW, we are not guaranteed those mornings!  We had beautiful days in May but now we are into some very gray days in June.  Forecast is for lots of sun next week.  Here's hoping, but one thing I can count on - God is faithful; His mercies are new every morning.  With that assurance, I can have a great day no matter what the weather.
My card today is a CASE of Helen's beautiful card pictured below:
I love her card so using materials in my craft room, I was able to make something similar.  (I must have those fern die cuts!)
If or when I make this again, I will do a few things differently. I will use Stazon Black instead of Momento for a darker more solid black and I will use a different wood grain paper, maybe make my own.  But due to limited time, this will have to do and I do like it (especially if I don't compare it to Helen's!)
The inside frame cut was made with a MFT Rectangle die.  The vine is also MFT.  The flower is made with the Cuttlebug Flowers die. 
The wood was enhanced with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink. 

Have a great day no matter what the weather is!

  2. Beautiful case card, lovely words.
    Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

  3. Beautiful CASE of Helen's card. It's obvious where you found your inspiration. Loving that you switched some things up to make your own creation. Thanks for joining us at STAMPlorations 5th birthday celebration.


  4. This is so beautiful. Love the sentiments. We are truly blessed that you joined our Challenge earlier this month at Word Art Wednesday. There's still time to join our current Challenge and we'd love to see back. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Isaiah 43:10 which says, “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Have a great day!
