(2011 Card #45) Berry Happy

The main theme of this card is Something Hidden following along with Stampin Sisters In Christ Challenge #81.  The scripture this week is:
Scripture: Matthew 6:6 "But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you."
A reminder that we need to talk directly to God in our prayers, from the depths of our souls we can cry out to God not only in supplication, but in praise and thanksgiving.  When we go to Him in private, we are there truely for sweet communion  with Him and not for show to impress others.

Focal Image was once a Freebie from Meljen's Designs.  Be sure to visit her site to get her weekly freebie digis, some remain free, but some are only free for a short time, then they are for sale.  I printed it once for the outside image & cut it out with Big Scalloped Circles die from Spellbinders.  Then printed image larger and cut out with a smaller circle so just the strawberry was visible.   Since it was cut out with a smaller circle, it is hidden when the card is closed.  I painted the strawberry with LuminArte Polished Pigments mixed with gum arabic.  I embossed white CS with Sizzix Perfect Polka Dots, then brushed StampinUp Rose Red ink pad across to highlight the dots.
