Celebrate LIfe!

I once heard that God cares more about our character than our circumstances.  I thought on that a bit today and realized that although my life circumstances haven't always been ideal, they have certainly changed my character.  So today I wanted to Celebrate Life!  The sky's the limit and until I take my last breath, I can continue becoming a better person, the person God intends for me to be.

My card today is a VERY different type of card than I usually create.  Here is my card..
 
I used some distress techniques with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads on the tag,
 
 I cut a mask for the bottom of the card to use the dauber to create the hills and the sky and I even painted  in a few birds. 
 
 Wow!  For me, this is waaaaaay outside the box!  This has been a really fun card for me to create!  I hope you enjoy it!
