SC198 Footprints in the Sand


Happy Day!!!

WOW - I didn't think I could get creative on the SC198 Challenge - I have tried this Sketch on 2 different cards - which they end up in the trash can - until I've tried this card. Maybe flipping the Sketch helped a bit....

I used the gorgeous *Footprint in the Sand* Set from *Our Daily Bread Designs*.

Once again - I've tried to keep my design very simple and focus mainly on this beautiful image. I love this Set so much - to me it speak volume - I know that my Savior is walking with me every day and for some reason every time I see this Set - I have this warm feeling coming over me...knowing he is right beside me!!! I know you all probably think I'm silly, but I can't help how I feel!!!

Anyway - I have used only two colors on this card - Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. Hope you like it??? I didn't have a chance to stamp the inside of the card - which I will, but I really need to be going......

If you like - come back later and I'll have a *SURPRISE* waiting!!!

Silke, I knew you could turn this sketch into a beautiful card!! I love the monochromatic look. You chose a wonderful stamp set to work with.

And no, I don't think you are silly at all. I feel the same way. Isn't it wonderful to have the peace that HE is besides us always?

WOW! This is one gorgeous, fantastic card! Congrats on being 40!! I've been there a while now and I've got a little more freedom to stamp with the kiddos getting older, too. Have a happy day!
