ODBDSLC268-Anything Goes With ODBD

Good morning and welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs 
new challenge, "Anything Goes With ODBD"

My great niece, Bailey, is a rodeo girl.  She competed in High School Rodeo and in Reginal Rodeos and even competed in Las Vegas!  She did just about everything , all the events.  I have some great photos of her "cutting" cows (if you haven't seen that you are missing a great dance between cow and horse).  She ended up being a roper, that was her favorite.    She was the header and her partner would rope the feet.
This card is for her because although she is a cowgirl, she is EVERYTHING feminine and even does some modeling.

ODBD stamps used: Saddle Up
This is a photo of one of my friends horses.  I actually found it AFTER I colored.
I started by stamping the horses and die cutting them before coloring.  Because I've had horses myself, I colored them in familiar to me colors. I Matted with brown stock cut with a circle die then stamped the sentiment and matted in a similar manner.  I die cut both the pink dot and the pink and brown stripe with the Flourished Star Pattern outer die (rectangle with stitching) and then cut my brown and pink stripe with the Leafy Edged Border and glued them together.  I attached my ribbon at the bottom and slid a pearl buckel on then attached the other side (under the fringe) then matted the layers with brown.  I used glue to attach my leather fringe and when dry, I attached the pearls which are stuck together in a line already.  I attached these layers to a white folded card base and then foam taped my image and sentiment to the card so they are popped up.

Proverbs 21:31 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord.
How many times do we go out and try with our OWN might or extensions of our OWN might, to win the battles of life?  If you are like me, all the time!  But God is our source, our protection, our shield and God is the one who wins our battles for us.  He ask us to rest in Him, to lean on Him, to call upon Him in our troubles.  Our lives are in the hands of the One who created us, who hold all things together, do we think that He can not handle ANYTHING that comes along.
Remember, He is the one who created every cell, every adom, every universe, planet, star, moon, every flower, tree, rock...I think He can handle our problems.
He can handle our sickness and disease, our problems at work or with a spouse or kids.  There is nothing that He does not know about, just go to Him in prayer and ask Him, He is waiting for you!
