Needed a Little "TLC"

Today was a very stressful day for me. So, after we got the kids to bed, I set out to do today's TLC (Technique Lovers Challenge) on SCS. The technique is called "Tapestry" and you can view Beate's Tutorial HERE.

This just wasn't coming together well. I threw away part of my first one, but I wanted to end my day feeling like I did something right, so I stuck with it and this is what I ended up with. I didn't have clear embossing powder (like I was suppose to use) so I used Irridescent Ice ep. It's very sparkly IRL and doesn't look this dark either. You can actually see the white craft ink much better irl. Used Nature's Secret and Wonderful Wings (SU!)

EDITED: If you read this earlier, you would know that I've been going through a hard time lately...but after a day I just felt really weird about posting it, so I removed the previous paragraph. But I just wanted to make sure and say THANKS for your comments and emails, prayers and support. I know things will be better soon. {{Hugs}}

Don't know what you're going thru, but you're right - satan does work overtime on those who belong to Christ! BUT - God is STILL in control & this too shall pass!!!
