Be Still and Know

This is my very first entry for two CAS challenges, Less is More and CASology!  The theme for Less is More 83 is Brown & Pink and the theme for CASology #8 is "Relax".   
 I hope my card is clean and simple enough because it's always a challenge (but one I need and love) to use less!  The only embellishment is a brown button.
I masked a strip with post-it-notes and then sponged with several pink inks to make the inked area darker at the edges.  I then inked and stamped the main image.  I had a small stamp with the words "Be still and know..." which I love (from Psalm 46:10) but unfortunately there was a flaw in the stamp and so I had to abandon that and resort to a computer font in the color/colour brown in order to keep my intended message...sometimes we have to relax and be still to know that He is God...and then to experience the things listed in the text behind the chair!
Supplies include:
Paperbag Studio The Chair
SU Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede ink
MFT Fishtail Flag Die-namic
