"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

KWERNER's Color Inspiration #34 / Mojo Monday #64






I've decided trying to use 5 colors in a single card is really tricky! This is my entry for both Kristina's Color Inspiration and Julee's Mojo Monday.
Obviously I didn't totally stick to the exact Mojo sketch, I really wanted to do a square card.
The stamped tree is from SU's Holiday Mini, called Scandinavian Season. I've really enjoyed this set! The sentiment is Punches Three, a hostess set which you can earn with a minimum personal or workshop order of $150. I used my handy VersaMarker to ink the sentiment only & then embossed it with Iridescent Ice EP. I used crystal effects on the celery & sage parts of the tree, and also the inside of the pale plum flower, which I dusted in clear glitter. A rhinestone sits in the middle of the flower.
I also used a couple of Martha Stewart punches~ for the 'lace' & for the ribbon holes, the latter of which I threaded white organza ribbon. I also used SU's Ticket Corner punch and retired Corner Rounder punch.
This simple card took many hours, my 6 month old hasn't been wanting to sleep lately~ only play... and play... and play! I can't wait until he can stamp!

Have a great day!
