Rest, Relaxation, and double embossing

Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest."

That is the verse that the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge is based on. We were to make a card that showed rest or relaxation. For me music is what helps me focus on Christ and that makes me feel relaxed and rested. I added little gold music notes from my Layers of Color Joyful Noise set.

This card is also for the TCL double embossing. I ink sprayed and smashed the base and ran it through my dotted swiss cuttlebug folder. I then layed my Layers of Color stencil over the paper. I used my versamark ink to cover the openings. I sprinkled gold ep and heat embossed it. I added the butterfly from the Layers of Color Joyful Noise. I watercolored it and added glamour dust.

This card is going to a special lady who is helping me get some rest this week. Her name is Ardy. She is spending the week at boyscout camp being MOM to 20 boys (2 of which are mine). She is cooking the meals and sacrificing her comfortable bed, so my boys can have a great time at camp. I hope to get this quickly in the mail so she can get it before camp is over.
