The Lifter of my Head

Second post for today....Oh I LOVE this verse on this card!  It is such an encouragement to me.  Like at this very moment when I'm worn out, and my head is hanging from battling with my seven year old's very strong will all day.  I can turn to God and He lifts up my head.

My last Verve Sketch/Inspiration card is here....


it was based on this sketch....


and this beautiful inspiration bedroom



I really love the softness to the pattern, and it totally reminded me of Webster's Pages.  And I really like the quilted look of the comforter and the pillows.  I would totally have a bedroom set like this.  It looks so peaceful and pretty.  


So, I've used Websters' Life's Portrait in several sheets for the designer paper, and then to mimic the quilting I ran my Sahara Sand paper through the crimper both ways several times to give it that look.  



Above is a little closer look at the butterflies that I've added in lieu of the sketch circles....and then I just had to add the extra one too.   The Verve set is a Plain Jane Psalm 3:3.    Not quite a Shabby Vintage. card ...but sort of in that genre hey?  

Thanks again for the visit!  I'm off to try and demonstrate some more needed patience with this boy of mine.  I may have to attach this card to the fridge!
