~A Pink Journaling Tree~

I pray you are having a hopeful morning

~despite your situation today.

There are no words for what some have experienced and are dealing with right now.

Believe me, if I had the right words, I would write them.

 I pray the Lord heal what was broken and bruised...

those precious hearts and minds that have been rattled.

~We are truly blessed, friends, to be alive while today is still today~

This leftover tree is from

 the journaling card I created here,
and it stared at me LONG ENOUGH from my cluttered desk.

It was too pretty and joyful to leave buried under scraps.

I funned the tree  up by

adding black and grey Copic coloring to the edges to give it a jazzy look.

 The dots are from my Sakura Souffle pen.

It takes a delicate touch to get the pouf (if you smear down too much, it will lay flat).

If you haven't used those pens, know that the shades are a bit lighter when they are completely dry.

It seemed natural to wrap the sentiment die cut around the card base,

because if I left it whole, it would have competed with the tree.

This falls in line with the theme of

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #193

(create a card or project where your focal image falls off the page)

I am also inspired by the pink pink fun here at

Take care~
