"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

ESSENCE OF LOVE / CQC #17 & 2S4Y #44...


An oldie but a goodie... this retired SU! set is probably one of my favorites by far...






This card is for 2 challenges, colourQ #17 & Laura's sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You.

Looking at the inspirations for the colourQ made me want to take it a bit literal (as one of the colourQ guest designers admitted, too - like minds, huh?) So when I thought of being literal, this set came to mind. The black silhouette is stamped onto Bashful blue & then sponged with Taken with Teal. I then Versamarked the whole thing & clear embossed it, which you can't really tell from the photo. Plus doing that seemed to darken up the bashful blue, but it's there, oh well... I always stick a butterfly on these image, and the other colourQ guest designer used a butterfly as well... so we had couple concurrent themes in the colourQ samples this week - lol! The butterfly is a MS punch & I added 3 black rhinestones to it's body.

Have a great day & play along with these challenges if you get a chance!
Bye for now...

Oh My Arielle! Such a lovely card and it's amazing given such a "challenging" color scheme! I'll have to ponder this one and see if I'm up for the challenge! ;)
