Fun Creating My Own Background

Hello Everyone,
Today July 2, 2013 is a start of a new week of  Create Your Own Background  at 'Twist of Faith Card Challenge'. You can use watercolors, inks, stamps, or even your own drawing.

I decided to play with corrugated cardboard and my favorite embossing folders. My fabulous main attraction is beautiful whimsical 'Lizabeth Spring Music' one of many by creator Lucy Sunshine Stamps, Artist Heather Valentin. I hope you visit if you have not already Heather's wonderful world of Lacy Sunshine Gang will want them all.  Lacy Sunshine Stamps is also the Sponsor this week so come on by.

Here is my card with Lizabeth Spring Music. She inspired my heart with Songs of Praise to my Heavenly Father. I have mobility issues with my legs mainly and each day is a challenge...for the physical strength I have today at times is gone or slows me down tomorrow... I am grateful I have limbs some are not so fortunate....So sweet whimsical Lizabeth Spring Music is my instrument today to shouting out my Rejoice in the Lord always Rejoice

Wow, love the effect of the Geso on the corrugated cardstock. There is so much to see on this card even without the use of design paper. Sorry to hear about your health issues, it takes a strong woman though to look past that and be thankful for the things that you have been blessed with.
