Be Still

My uncle used to always say, "Be Still" instead of "Be quiet", he said that phrase encompassed what he wanted. He would say this to me in the boat when we were fishing, saying "be still" got me to close my mouth as well as stop shaking the boat.....very effective. I often think of this when I think of being STILL before the Lord, not only quieting my mouth but my body and mind as well.
I was looking for a graphic impact card for this easter set. There is nothing more graphic in my mind than picturing those three crosses on a hill. I outlined the center one with white gel pen for focus.
This sentiment and set are wonderful, they are the newest release from Papertrey. I decided to use her newest color as well....aqua mist. I sponged and brayered that color on the card and then used the cardstock to mat it. This shows exactly how "perfect" of a match they are!
I sponged the flower to match.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Happy Stamping!

I love the combination of the image and the verse, Sherrie. A great reminder to us that God is in control at the darkest moments and brings perfection out of what seems, at the time, to be purposeless to us.

one of my favorite verses. I love how you used the white to highlight the cross.

This is gorgeous and it speaks for itself. Love your color choices too. May we all learn to "be still" and just reflect on all God did for us as we celebrate this Easter. {{hugs}}
