Freshly Made...

The folks over at Freshly Made Sketches are helping me learn that less is more.  Their emphasis on 'clean and simple' provides a challenge for me, as I tend to keep adding stuff to my card creations until there is no space left.  I probably over did it again this week, but I'm trying.  I chose some bright, fun colors for this card.  The card base is red and the plaid panel is perfect for what I had in mind.  The scripture sentiment, though starting out with some sad truths, ends on a positive and cheerful note, and I wanted the other elements of the card to reflect this.

I am entering this card into the following challenges.

Freshly Made Sketches #32
Word Art Wednesday #25
