HC Sea Breeze Oval Layered Card

Good morning! 
I've used my ovals for this card with foam sheet between
each layer for more dimension.
Some pieces are in the center layer, some the first 
and some on top.
I used a sand embossing powder around my heart 
and randomly on the sand.
Can't you just imagine that couple right outside our 
scope of vision?

HC Sea Breeze FoldOut

Good morning!
I love these fold out cards don't you?
You can do so much with them and use so many stamps and die and that is what we love isn't it?

I made a continuous shore line on this card and used the texture paste with glitter to make a fun wave foam.
I used real shells on gauze for some fun trim
I also used real sand on the sand (found it at a hobby shop, part of the landscaping stuff for models).

John 3:16 New King James Version (NKJV)

16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
We cannot make ourselves perfect enough to enter heaven, did you know that?
But we don't have to because God provided a way for us Himself.  He sent His son Jesus the Christ to take the punishment for sin [for everyone who will believe] Himself so that He could provide, as a gift, a way to Himself and heaven.
All we have to do is believe that Jesus died for us, that He was raised from the dead [defeated death] and confess Him with our mouths as our savior, and accept Him as our Lord [boss]. 
It may sound too easy to you but in reality, living to please Him (because He is our Lord) is not easy.  Our flesh fights us everyday wanting it's own way.  But God gives us strength, He gives us His Holy Spirit to help us day by day.  He knows we are weak, frail humans and our lives pass by in a blink of an eye (compaired to eternity). He helps us day by day and He is with us.  He said He would never leave us nor forsake us.  Go to Him now in prayer and make Him your Lord and savior.
He said that there is nothing you have done that is too hard for Him to forgive and cleanse, He can lift that weight of sin off of you, go to Him.
