So Blessed!

Hi friends.  The majority of this magnet is made from a double-sided sheet of dp called Laurel Scrap Strip 2 from Scenic Route Paper.  I received this paper from a friend and as soon as I saw it I knew I would make something for my home with it, because the sentiment so expresses how I feel.  I am blessed, abundantly blessed.  That doesn't mean that life is always easy or that I never have problems.  What it does mean is that I recognize how wonderfully God works in my life and cares for me. No matter what my circumstances, with God in my life I can always say, "I am abundantly blessed.".
For my magnet I started with a chipboard frame from K& Co.  I covered it with a scrap of card stock.  The background is a piece of the dp.  The sentiment is also cut from the dp. The little bird is cut from the dp, backed with card stock to make it more durable and mounted on double stick foam tape.  I put a piece of a Sizzix flourish die cut behind the sentiment and finished off the magnet with a few rhinestones.  All of the papers are inked, of course.  I'm not sure I can make a paper project without inking my papers. :)
