My inspiration for this card goes far back to when I was a child. I was always drawn to the dark night sky’s glow of its full moon and its dancing, twinkling stars. I remember (as often as I was allowed) I would lay on my back with my arms crossed behind my head and just look up to the night’s sky and just imagine life as I wished it would be. Now as an adult I look up to try and see beyond the moon and stars with a childlike hope I might catch a glimpse of God.Inspired ingredients to make this card ..
