Create in Me a New Heart

Hello there blogosphere! I'm back again with another Saturated Canary CUTIE today! :)

The verse featured is from Word Art Wednesday and it really spoke to me as I crafted this card. Partially because I was mad at my husband the ENTIRE time I was making the card and every time I read it over I kept arguing with God that MY heart isn't the one that needs to be changed... BUT I know that's not always how God works, so I guess I do need my spirit to be renewed as well. :)

This card SHOULD have been a walk in the park because the image and verse were just printed together on the cardstock and I just had to color and mount... I colored the image using copics BUT I kept looking at it and saying "it needs something else"... (I probably just needed to keep reading the verse to calm down!). So I masked the image, stamped a heart motif background, inked and distressed the bottom with antique linen and pumice stone, added some spun sugar to the background as well, then colored in the open hearts with R93. The papers are Graphic 45. The heart doily and flowers were the finishing touches, all items that have been in my stash WAY too long! :)

phew... So I'm entering this one into the Saturated Canary color challenge, Wild Orchid's Anything Goes, and Word Art Wednesday's Anything Goes challenge. Thanks so much for looking and letting me rant a little bit! :) I guess we all have "those" days sometime or another!  :)
