Grant me the Serenity....

Sometimes life can get crazy and stressful. Sometimes I know I feel a bit out of control and overwhelmed with things. Logically, I know I can't change certain things, I know I need to accept them and move on. But sometimes, the emotional side of me kicks in and all logic is out the window! KWIM? So when I got this Serenity Prayer from Crafty Secrets, I knew I wanted to make a card with it right away. I think I need to send it to myself! : ) The paper is Basic Grey's Porcelain. I also used vintage book paper. The tag was distressed using coffee grounds and Glimmer Mist to give it some shimmer. I am in love with flowers these days and knew I had to use them here.


I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!!!
