retro Color Challenge

"Great is your faithfulness. "the Lord is my portion," says my soul, 'Therefore I hope in Him!' " Lamintations 3:23-24

In times of such unstable economic peril we are faced with uneasiness, fear, anguish and lack of faith. We need to remember that God is good all the time and all the time God is good! I am guilty of this as well, so I am putting no blame on ayone, but I whenever I tend to doubt who is in control I go to my Bible and start reading about God's good word, His promise for a better world...eventhough the world the bible talks about might not be what we think it should look like of even in our lifetime, if we belive and are faithful we will see all the glory God has in store for us! Be thankful today for God awesome provisions and remain faithful that He is in control! No matter what you don't have here on earth, the Lord is yours for an eternity!

And for a now card!

So todays color challenge 190 on SCS was Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango! Wild I know! And I even made a boo boo and went even bolder! I forgot what color we were supposed to use and used Pink Passion instead of pixie pink...I hope the challenge police can forgive me!

I went to my friend Ronnies the other day, she owns a scrapbook store called GoldensHill paper crafts (if you're in the Fairfax area you should stop by and tell her I sent you!) and I got this adorable stamp set from Inkadinkado called Butterflies and Birds for just $7.50...the awesome thing is that this set has 23 stamps! I know crazy huh! I love all the different bird and butterfly images! Anywho I thought this set would be perfect for this challenge and I just love how it turned out...the designer paper could of been a little more retro-y is that a word? but I'm pleased with the results! Very simple, very little embelishments, but I think the focal images just pull it off perfectly!

Stamps:Birds and Butterflies
Ink:Pink Passion, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Stazon Black
Paper:Pink Passion, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Papaya Designer paper by SU!
Accessories:scallop border punch, 1/16th inch circle punch. 1 1/4 suare punch.

Thanks fo stopping by!

Happy Stampin'

May God Bless you today and Always!

Well said, thank you for the reminder. When times are down, it's easy to wander off the path.

Lovely card, those butterflies are awesome in the squares and those colors!!

Fairfax, eh? I lived in Manassas for 5 years!! Small world.

I'm totally in agreement with your statement! When I get frustrated or wonder just why things are happening as they are, I am reminded that as long as my eyes are on Him and trust that He is in control, stress is relieved and I can take a breath again. I'm so like Peter...when he took his eyes of the Master of the sea, he began to sink. But, alas, as soon as he refocused, things became alright again! We serve a 'risen' Savior, not a corpse!
