Tool Time

Hello all of you wonderful paper lovers!

Stay Stable
The [uncompromisingly] righteous shall flourish
like the palm tree [be long-lived, stately, upright,
useful, and fruitful]: they shall grow like a
cedar in Lebanon [majestic, stable,
durable, and incorruptible].
                                     PSALM 92:12 

I hope you are having a great weekend and have had some time to relax and unwind before the week begins!? I have been busy creating cards to share with all of you. 
On this card I wanted to mix it up a bit and use some of the Metallic/Mica cardstock along with the more subtle cardstock. As you can see the Metallic’s/Mica’s sure hold up to the name. The shimmers that reflects off these pieces look so surreal.
