Joan gave us a really neat technique to try this week called dry embossing and sanding. I used paper from K&Company. I used my script embossing folder. I had never thought to sand my paper with a brown paper bag until Joan told us about it. I love the soft sanded look that it achieved on my card. I used The Sweet Stop Sketch:SSS197 I used a scripture stamp from Inspired Stamps:James 1:2. I added some quilled roses, floral filler and a twine bow. While I was making this card and reading the scripture I saw a similarity. I cut the paper, I embossed the paper, I sanded the paper, I glued the paper, I sewed the paper... from the paper's point of view those were traumatic events. But the result was much prettier than the plain piece of paper had been. Maybe my life, with the trials that seem so traumatic, is being transformed into something beautiful. I kinda took that away from this scripture. I hope you have a blessed day. Thanks for looking at my card and reading my description.

Marilyn, this is one of my favorite of Scriptures. This is perfect for framing and putting on the wall! Those trials are always going to be there. Life + Chaos = change. And I have a lot of changing to do in my life so I reckon I am still in for more chaos (trials).
