"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

MORE NEW BEGINNINGS/ CR84FN #15 & JAI #56...


I love trees! Especially "happy little trees"... (anyone get the Bob Ross inference? LOL) This tree was both watercolored and Copic'd. The main image isn't matted, I just colored around the edge with a yellow Copic!


This card was made with the following sets: New Beginnings Triptych and complimenting sentiments, Inspired Quotes, over at the Wax Fruit Company.


The two challenges I played with are super awesome this week!!! Color from CR84FN and sketch from Just Add Ink! Both of these blogs have outstanding style, not only are the challenges & inspiration great, their blogs are gorgeous!


Have a great day!!!

I LOVE how you have used the tree branch and the buttons to form the accent down the side. The sentiment is lovely and so is your card. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink this week.
