ODBDSLC237-Color Challenge

Good morning all!
ODBD stamps used: My Lifeguard

I love these bright colors, don't you?  I've decided to use the bright colors to do a beach scene today.  My umbrella is a beach umbrella and you know how brightly they are colored. I die cut each section a different color  and mounted to a white base umbrella. I cut off the usual handle and added a 1/8" strip of white paper for the post instead, then colored it with Copics.  I stamped the lifeguard scene and colored with Copics then used the Vintage labels to die cut it.  My  burlap is suppose to be a kind of beach mat. The background is the Faithful Fish Pattern. You know that stitched layer is from the Flourished Star Pattern? Yup! I use it a lot! Love that stitching!!
This is a very simple card but it is so colorful I just love it! Hope you do too!

Psalm 46:1; Ps 119:114
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in your word.
There are so many verses that talk about God being our help, our shield, our salvation, our strength, our source, our deliverer, etc. 
God made us, keeps us, has a plan for us and has our days in His hands.
Most importantly, our God loves us.
The sentiment on this card reminds me of that as well as Jesus walking on the water.  Our God is a God of miracles!
Thanks for stopping by today.
