CAS-ual Fridays Splish Splash Challenge CFC66

     Who doesn't love a day at the beach or on the ocean? I love hearing the rustle of the wind blowing through the palm trees. So, when CAS-ual Fridays asked us to create a card using something in or near the ocean, I picked a palm tree.

     I heat-embossed the tree and sentiment. Then, I colored the tree with alcohol markers and added an orange mat and acccents.
     One reason I love palm trees is that they remind me of the power of God. It seems that no matter how strong a storm is, the palm tree remains standing. It might lose a few or even all of its fronds, but it remains standing. That's how it is with me and God. I have faced some terrible storms in my life, but as long as I've held onto God, I've always made it through.
     If you have an idea for a clean-and-simple card, you can play along with us. Here's the place to find all the contest guidelines: http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2012/08/cfc66.html
