Make Today Your Day Card---We have Another Challenge at MayzyArt!

Hi, everyone!   It's quite a hectic week for me having to finish 3 DT cards together with all the usual responsibilities with my family at home, at Church and with friends too.  But things needed to get done and I can only thank the Lord Jesus for providing me the strength to keep up with all these responsibilities and commitments.  Many times, I ran out of ideas or there are also days where I wanted to do a lot including trying many techniques that it all clashes in my head...LOL  In those times, I simply let go of all the stress, breath for a moment and utter a prayer---"Lord help me create something nice today." And as I begin to gather my materials, things are coming to my head little by little.  I don't picture my creation until materials are put away and mess cleaned up,  then,  I set my finished project in front of me, appreciate how it came about and thank the Lord for everything---Yes, everything!  The Bible says:

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5)


That's why in everything I do, I give God all the glory.  Come to think about it, if I am not feeling well, then, I will not be able to do anything.  If I don't have eye to see, then it would be interesting to put together a detailed work such as this and many more reasons I will not have the space nor the time to share here.  Even the air I breathe belongs to Him...This is the very reason why it is important for me to give Him all the glory.  I am simply a vessel for the Almighty God to use and give glory to His Name.  

Anyway, I want to share with you a Card I made for your inspiration at this week's MayzyArt Challenge.  The theme is Musical and you can interpret it your own way.  I used one of Mayzy's cute gal digis called "Amy" and colored here with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers.  I started with a square Kraft base CS measuring 5.5-inches.  All the DP's are from Paper Studio, the border punch from EK Success and the ribbon from my stash.  A couple of Nestabilities were used (Scallop and Circle---2nd to the largest of both) to produce the shape the image is mounted on.  The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC and the gems are from Hotfix.  I stamped some swirls behind the main image and those were from Autumn Leaves.  Lastly, I finished it up by stitching.  I think it came out pretty good, what about you?
