Three of a Kind

Making a card with a saying as the focal point is a bit more challenging than others, for me anyway. The white card shown here was also my submission for the Less Is More challenge. However, I think I like it better here as a square card.

The blue card is a standard size, and I kept it very simple. I thought clouds made the ideal background for this sentiment. Blue and white seemed like a peaceful color combo also.

Finally, the yellow square card is cheerful and colorful, with lots of embellishments. First I inked the flower in yellow, then used orange along the edges of the stamp. After punching out the scalloped circle, I sponged the edges yellow. Next, I cut a square of dsp (thank you, Linda--I love it!) and attached it to the card. I mounted the verse with SU dimensionals, then added the lady bug and various colors and sizes of gems in the flower centers.

As for the saying, it reminds me that God is always near to us even when we don't feel near to Him--especially during difficult times. Though we tend to wander, He never leaves us!
