Photographic Memory Card---Join us for Another Anything Goes Challenge with a Twist at 613 Avenue Create!

Hello Crafty Peeps...Here I am again to feature the second card I made for our Anything Goes Challenge with a Twist (2D/3D Flower) in my neighborhood---613 Avenue Create.  I especially enjoy making this Card highlighting one of the two sponsors we have this week.  I chose this wonderful sentiment from Eureka stamps called "Photographic Memory" as it gave me a pretty clear idea what to do when I came across it.  I can definitely identify with the message of this card being not as young as I was and have forgotten stuff from time to time...LOL  The other day,  I asked my son to help me find one of the panels I already prepared to place in my card.  I looked everywhere and if I had asked my son, it's because I already tried my best to locate it.  Without even standing up from the couch, he told me that it was by my elbow on the right side of the table where I was sitting.  I smiled in embarrassment though I told him it was upside down, the reason why I didn't see it...LOL  At one point, it was my bifocals, which was, duh---on the top of my head!  Anyway, all of these things convinced me that I was not the young lady I was and that I am facing the reality of getting old...(Did I just say that?)  Despite the wrinkles and many other signs of aging, I am happily maturing because the wisdom and knowledge of God have also grown,  adding to my arsenal of experiences in life.  I can say that I have a better perspective---a Biblical perspective!  I am able to teach my son about life with the help of experience and constant study of the Word (perfect combination) and to live in the fear of the Lord.  I know that I have many years left that God will use for His glory.  Therefore, I will continue to live this life to serve God to its fullest (ignoring some body aches and pains...LOL).  God has numbered our days in accordance to His purpose. The very reason for our existence is to fulfill the will of God in our lifetime.  While there's a breath left in me, I will proclaim all the wonderful things Jesus accomplished in my life and will tell of His glory till He takes me home by physical death or Rapture (Catching Away).  Here are some verses to inspire all of us who are not so young anymore.  Be of good cheer because the Lord is our strength always...

"The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon Planted in the house of the LORD, They will flourish in the courts of our God They will still yield fruit in old age ; They shall be full of sap and very green To declare that the LORD is upright ; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him"  (Psalm 92:12-15) 

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

"But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ,  who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body." (Philippians 3:20-21)

So here's my second inspiration card for our Challenge at 613 Avenue Create.  If you want to see the other project I posted for our Challenge, it is HERE.  I use the image from Bugaboo stamps called "Miss B" to give life to this cute sentiment from Eureka Stamps.  I colored it using my ProMarker/Prismacolor markers.  The white CS are cut and scored to make a 5.5 inches square card.  The DP's are all from DCWV (Handy Dandy Stack), ribbon from my stash and I layered some flowers from Prima and added a button at the center from Paper Studio.  I used my MS Punch to add a shape to one of the panels, glitters (Stickles-Crystal) on the image's slippers, white nail head gems from Imaginisce and stitched all over this card.  I love it and hope you like it too.
