Change is good...

Oh my...this stamp just makes me crack up! ( pun intended!) I won it a couple weeks ago, and just finally had time to ink it up! My big brother is going through an uncertain time concerning employment - the company where he has worked for 15 years is shutting down, so he is searching for a job. So I made this to let him know I was thinking of him, and praying for him - and hopefully to help him smile through a trying situation! And to remember that God has something better in mind!
I paper-pieced the image with some My Mind's Eye paper from a 6x6 paper pad. 
The oval is cut and embossed with one of my Nestabilities. I inked the edges of it and the sentiment square with Tim Holtz distress ink. 
Here is a closer look at the paper-piecing: 
Pop-dotted it from the oval, then pop-dotted the oval to the card, after wrapping some Baker's twine around in a few different colors.
The border piece was cut with a Fiskars Border punch. 
Hope this gave you a smile today too! Thanks for stopping by!
