The Shelter of The Most High!

Hi Blog Friends!

I have been BUSY at work in our cozy home on this cold blustery day! Brrrr! It's COLD OUTSIDE! I have been busy making a card for an ODB Challenge! It's due TOMORROW! Eeeeks! This has been a BUSY WEEK & having a headache for two days now, I wondered if I'd get this one done! But, I've succeeded, & I AM PLEASED with how it came out! 
   Check here for the details on this challenge:

Here is the picture that ODB has given us for INSPIRATION!
I LOVE the look of these two pictures! I chose the picture on the left to use for inspiration for my card! There is SO MUCH that inspired me about this picture!
Let me begin!
I LOVE  the white furniture, & so I washed the designer papers with Gesso to give that white washed look. I LOVE the china pieces & so I chose the designer paper I did, with the thought of the china in mind, the blues & pinks of the flowers on the china! I LOVE the gold edges of the china, & so edged the designer papers in gold, a little distressed & aged as the china seems to be.

I LOVE the lace, the doilies, the crystal & glass! So, I used a Wilton paper doily-look closely & you'll see it peaking out, a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circle, a lace bow & a stick pin I made with clear crystal beads! 

I LOVE the birdcage in the photo, so I found a lovely image of a birdcage on my designer papers & used it as a background for my main image. It symbolizes the shelter of The Most High too, even to the little birds of the air, because He cares for them too!  I also LOVE the curved edges of the china pieces, the curved window on the curio, & the curve of the back of the chair, & so I used a SU- Corner Rounder Punch for the corners of my papers!

I chose the Scripture,
"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty." Psalm 91:1 
 Because it fits this picture! I think of the BEAUTY of dwelling in the shadow of the Most High & how there is REST in His shadow, in His presence! 
This is a place I could rest in, a place I could sit & have tea & just DWELL, just like in the presence of The Almighty, then I will be in The Shelter of The Most High!
Supplies used not mentioned above: 
ODB- Scripture Collection 2
Spellbinders- Classic Circles
DCWV- The Primrose Stack
MS- Lace
Glue Dot

Hope you like & find a place that brings you to The Shelter of The Most High!
