Happy Thursday! Today, I wanted to share one of the new Unity Scrapbook Royalty kits designed by Melody Ross. I am soooo thrilled that Melody is designing stamps now... and with my favorite company!!! :) If you've never heard her story, you really should read her blog. She is an amazing woman who has the most positive outlook on life... and presses through life's challenges with such grace. She's truly one of the most inspiring women I know (even though I've never met her face to face). You can read more about the Scrapbook Royalty organization and see more kits available for purchase HERE.
Today's card uses one of my favorite images from the 'Just Be You' kit. Life is Beautiful. But, let's face it. Sometimes life feels like anything but beautiful. Life can be tough, and mean, and ugly. I think this one little stamp has a lot of meaning packed inside of it. For me, it's looking life's challenges straight in the eye and choosing to see things differently. I choose to see the beauty in this day.
We also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us. Romans 5:3-5

I heat embossed my stamped image in black and added hints of color with my Copics. The yummy paper is by Graphic 45 & those beautiful blooms are by American Crafts.
Now... hop on over to Jen Erickson's blog to see what she's been up to!
