~ Beauty ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Welcome!  I pray you are having a wonderful Lord's day!  Today is a special day for our family.  Our youngest son will marry the love of his life this evening.  We are excited to welcome a new DIL to the fold and a wonderful grandson!  God has truly blessed us and we are excited to see how not only how this union will be blessed but how it will honor our Lord and Savior! 
 
So in the spirit of beauty...  a beautiful bride, flowers, dresses and the like...  what could possibly be more beautiful than the Lord's handiwork that surrounds us each and every day?  Have you taken a moment to watch a sunset or sunrise this season?  Have you thanked the Creator for his provisions?  We are having deluges of rain right now in Kentucky.  But when I look a little closer, I notice just how lush and green the grass is...  extremely unusual for this time of year!  It's a God thing!  Even with extreme weather conditions, beauty abounds...  We just have to look for it! 
 
Today's card features a quote from North Coast Creations' ' Find Beauty set and sums it up nicely....



I stamped images from both the Find Beauty  and Something Marvelous  sets with Versamark ink.  I used a tan embossing powder to emboss both images and sentiment.  I sponged on a bit of light blue inks to create a watercolor effect and wiped off the images after the ink dried.  I framed the image with a bit of black CS and a light teal shade which matched the ink.  The card base is simple white CS.  Super easy!  So what do you think? 
 
Thanks for stopping by!
