Hello, Friends!!  I hope you all doing well!! It is nice to be back from vacation and to share another one of my creations with you today!!  After enjoying the most beautiful creation of all, God's nature while camping, I decided my card would include nature.

I used the sketch from ODBDSLC250 Shining the Light challenge at ODBD that I created for the team and made a more masculine card using Boho Faith and Keep Climbing.

Before the Mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalm 90:2 
As I listen to the news and see all the turmoil and tragedy around us, I can't help but wonder what has happened to our world.  Thankfully, throughout our troubled times, He is still in control even if we feel His Hand is no longer with us. I pray our world will soon wake up and see that they need Him.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Robin, Diana, and Paula.  To join our challenge or for more details, click here to link your creation.  You have until August 16 at 8pm EST to join us.

Thanks for stopping by and for your comments!! They are greatly appreciated!!
Blessings and hugs,

Beautiful Chris!! I love this stamp and you have created such a gorgeous scene with your coloring! Love you sunset colors (or maybe it's sunrise?)and you sewing and layering is so pretty! Great idea to use the eyelets too..haven't used them for a while myself and I have so many tons...LOL!
Love your encouragement given to us today. We need to remember that God is in control when we think everything is falling apart around us!!

Oh, Chris, how wonderful that you and the family had such a great vacation! You all needed it! And what a beautiful card, and especially I love that it's perfect for a guy - the ones I struggle with! I love your beautiful coloring, and the sky is perfect in the background behind the mountains! And what great DP and beautiful stitching! A gorgeous sketch card, my friend! And, yes, God is God, and during these increasingly difficult times, we must always remind ourselves that He and He alone is in control of it all...for His purpose and ultimate good and glory! Hugs, sweet friend!

This is a beautiful card. I love the mountains and the majesty they represent. I'm always looking for ideas for a masculine card and this one truly falls in that category. Thanks for sharing.
