Be Still

This card was made for SCS Sketch Challenge 353 and Color Challenge 343.  I have been so busy lately that I feel like I rarely get a moment to take a breath.  In the busyness I get frustrated when things do not go my way and think all my time and effort have been wasted.  Psalm 46:10 reminds me that God is God and in control of everything and I am not.  The trials of this life are not wasted time but lessons and building blocks to prepare us for even greater challenges that God has prepared for us.  I believe that through these challenges, He is teaching me to rely on Him and His power and not on my own.

Stamps: Psalm 46:10 from Scripture Collection 3 - ODBD
Paper:  Tangerine Tango, More Mustard, Soft Suede, VV, DP
Ink:  Soft Suede
Accessories:  Nestabililties, Paper Piercer, Ribbon, Mulberry Paper Flower

Hey Elizabeth, this is such a beautiful card, I really love your layout and the big bright bow sets the card off beautifully. This is my favorite scripture verse and many a time when I get all consumed in my own helplessness, God will direct me to this verse.
