Genesis 1:20, 21
who has graciously agreed to award our random prize winner with 4 uncolored digis of their choice! Take a peek around the Meljen Design Store...this won't be an easy choice should you be the lucky winner! They have just the most adorable images!
Here's the little creation I came up with using their image "Piggy Bath"
(I apologize for the blade of grass that is hanging over the side of the card...I wanted an outdoor photo in the dirt and a bit of grass and didn't notice it until I was ready to post this!)
I have to admit I was drawn to this image because it reminded me of one of my favorite books as a child..."Charlottes Web"...remember Wilbur?
I kept this card fairly simple as I think the image itself should be the main focus because it's just so adorable! I thought it would work well as a gate card, so that's what I went with. (My kids just thought it was the sweetest image...and both loved the card!)
Here's a better peek at the little piggy...
And a closer peek at the sentiment I used...
The background papers come from the Recollections Tattered and Worn Collection (diamond pattern) as well as "A Perfect Summer" by Echo Park (wood grain). The image and matting circles have both been cut with my Spellbinders Nestabilities using my BigShot.
I've also added a pink bow to the piggy's ear to dress her up a bit!
The sentiment is a phrase from a Stamp 'n Up set...and I just think it sends a really great message. As I get older I think I understand it more and more...we're all God's children, He has created us all unique and He has created us to be who we are! Often we try to change ourselves, or be someone we're not. That's so much more work than just being who we are. I know this makes us more vulnerable, letting people see that we are flawed, not perfect and have problems just the same...that our personality might be a little quirky, or our opinions differ than others...but that's how God created us. I want to encourage you today with the promise that we are all "fearfully and wonderfully made". God loves us just as we are!
I hope I've inspired you to take a look around your part of the world and see the beauty in nature that God has blessed us with. Then find an animal image that inspires you to get creative and link it up with us at Twist of Faith Card Challenges. We just love seeing your creations! And don't forget to check out the other DT projects that have been created for your inspiration!
