Shabby Chic?

This card started out from Beate's weekend sketch challenge, although it is not exactly like her sketch (sizes of panels). "My Eternal Family" is the theme in our church's children's organization this year and I have thought a lot about it the past few weeks, since the children just put on a program/presentation all about what they have learned this past year for the congregation. Yesterday, as the children were singing the closing song in church/primary, I looked out at all the children and was impressed with how much they all mean to me...personally, but mostly how precious they all are to our Father in Heaven. We were singing "We'll Bring the World His Truth" and the words of the song really touched me as I looked at all of the children. I have truly enjoyed and felt privileged to serve the children in our church the past two and a half or so years. I have loved teaching them and serving them with all of my heart. I pray that they will be strong servants in our Heavenly Father's work as they continue to grow and gain knowledge.

Anyway...about this card now...this is not how I really envisioned it. It is a different look for me, almost a shabby chic kind of look? But I also think it's kinda fun. I stamped two corners and used Dp paper for the other two. I love this "frayed yarn" and could use it much more than I do. :)

Thanks for the help Beate! :)
