At The Beach

I love this stamp by The Craft's Meow of Frieda at the beach.  She wears a dress which reminds me of one I had as a kid.  I had fun colouring her and the bird - have you ever seen a bird with those colours? Yupe, I had a moment where I just wanted to create my own little bird.  Here's a closer look at the card:

I did some piercing along the base patterned paper and then connected the piercing with a white gel pen, and I must say it does look pretty close to real sewing... for those who read my blog, you know I have issues with my sewing machine...LOL.  I also added the white gel pen dashes & dots along the edge of the focal image.

This card was made for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.  I enjoyed the sharing by Marilynn on Faith, so true isn't it we often long for tangible evidence and favourable outcome in order to believe.  But sometimes, faith is found in difficult situations and calls for a trust in the One we cannot see.

Enjoy today!

Paper : Cosmo Cricket Odds n Ends, PTI white cardstock

Real solid colours. The blue dress looks so vibrant. She certainly is ready for a gala time on the beach.
