This is my post for this weeks' Clean and Simple Saturday at Christian Paper Crafts.  Thanks for stopping by and by all means feel free to participate if you'd like!  Encouraging comments are always welcome too ;0)

Romans 12:1-2

I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

It is in the discipline of applying God’s word to my heart and mind that I am made more into His likeness. It is not so much that I am changing into something different, but more like He is conforming me to His intended image all along. I know that this will be a life-long process and I fervently pray to endure to the end and finish well!

     For this week’s CASS challenge, I would like to challenge you to “transform” a piece of designer or patterned paper any way you choose. For my card, I fussy cut around the flower images of my paper then embossed it, highlighting the pattern with distress ink. I printed my sentiment from the computer and layered it underneath. This gave lots of depth and dimension to the paper and overall card.
