~ 365 Cards: Day 339 ~

It's Stamping Boutique week and all DT members were given some digital images to play with. The challenge set at 365 Cards asks for the word 'love' to be included in the sentiment. Here's my card: 

Patterned paper from Basic Grey Sugar Rush collection. I combined two digi images here, the background and the boy itself. These images were printed with HP cartridge ink and heat blasted to ensure they dried well. I coloured using Promarkers (just a note that the alcohol ink will smear the printed image if the ink hasn't dried properly). Sentiment came from Unity. 

One may wonder what 'love abides' mean? Well, I googled and found this definition which was taken from a Catholic journal:
definition of love abides:

Love abides, love remains. In other words, that which can genuinely be called love remains, endures and abides.

It is a love that is not diminished by storms and turmoil, suffering and trial. It is a love that is always, PRESENT and PRESENCE, it is not apparent one day and absent the next... love abides.

Sounds poetic to me and now that I know the meaning, will be using that sentiment a lot more! Here's the inside of the card: 

Sentiment and image from Unity's July KOTM set.

Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week ahead! TTFN!
