Bella's Bloom - Inspiration Card

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  If you are not going to be better tomorrow than you were today, then what need have you for tomorrow?

Today's lesson  is a challenge that is almost 200 hundred years old.  About 200 years ago, Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav offered this challenge to his followers.  It is a challenge that is important for us to make of ourselves everyday.  How can you make today even better than yesterday?  How can you demonstrate that you have a need for another tomorrow so that you can make the world an even better place?  I challenge you! :)

Today's card took patience :)  The inspiration challenge on SCS was to find inspiration in the Etsy shop of Design Spirit Studio.  I was inspired by this piece of jewelry and immediately knew that Crystal Effects were in order :)  It's waiting for the crystal effects to dry that can take patience :)  I stamped the image a few times in Timber Brown Staz-on - I have found that if I used crystal effects over classic ink, it sometimes runs a bit.  It's hard to see, but there are 2 score lines toward the bottom of the card.  Hope you like it!
