Clean and Simple (NOT)

Boy did I ever goof this week with my DT card for Twist of Faith. Our challenge this week is

with a scripture, or uplifting verse/quote or positive words of healing, encouragment, or support.

Our scripture to share with you...
"The one thing I ask of the Lord -- the thing I seek most
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
delighting in the Lord's perfections and meditating in His temple." 
                              ~ Psalm 27:4 NLV ~

Milk Coffee Stamps is our very generous sponsorship! Not only did they provide images for the DT members, but our random prize winner will receive their choice of FIVE  Milk Coffee images!

Now that I've taken care of all the admin stuff, back to my goof! Somehow I managed to misread the DT calendar and totally did NOT see the CAS requirement. UGH! So my card is anything but CAS (in the true sense of the word). Multiple layers, various patterned papers and flowers does not constitute CAS. However, it is what it is, so here is my little card for this week.

I have used the Milk Coffee imaged called Lisbeth Sits on Fence. Isn't she a sweety? I've colored her with my ever faithful Copic markers and cut the area into a square. I have started with my usual white base. All of the DPs are from the My Mind's Eye 6x6" "A Mother's Love" pad. I have matted them all with brown card. After layering the DPs and image, I have added orange and white flowers (Recollections, Wild Orchid Crafts and I Love Roses) and green leaves. The sentiment is computer generated and reads, "Be still and know that I am God." (Psalm 46:10). I just felt little Lisbeth looked as if she was sitting there in the midst of God's beautiful day meditating and enjoying His wonderful glory.

We would love to see what you come up with for a CAS card. Do remember to include a scripture, uplifting verse or encouraging sentiment in order to be eligible for the wonderful sponsor's images. Hope over to the Twist of Faith blog to have a look at what my teammates have done to inspire you.

Happy crafting!
