SIWS31 - Psalm 122:1

We're focusing on a verse from Psalms this week in the Say It With Scripture Challenge at the Sweet 'n Sassy Connection.  Psalm 122:1 says, "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.

My husband pastors our church.  I truly look forward to going each Sunday & Wednesday to hear him teach and preach. I also look forward to the fellowship of our church family. I've been sick recently and was unable to attend church for 2 weeks.  I felt like I'd been gone forever and was so happy to be able to go to church with my husband this past Sunday.  I thought of this verse as we were driving to church and thought how appropriate it would be to use this week.  We should look forward to attending church for worship, fellowship and the encouragement we receive by being with other believers.

The design of my card was inspired by Gina K's Daily Inspiration Journal.  This is a new stamp set for me -- I usually avoid stamps with this much coloring but decided to stretch my comfort zone this week.  My conclusion is that my coloring still needs lots of work. 

Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (white), scrap from stash (green)
Patterned Paper:  SU
Stamp:  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Country Church Digital Stamp set)
Copics:  G7, G14, G17, C1, N5, N7, YG03, RV66, Y13, E7, E9, E33, E35, colorless blender
Embellishments/Tools: Sakura Glaze Pen, Offray ribbon, Oriental Trading Pearls, Spellbinders (Deckled Rectangle LG & SM, Petite ovals and Petite Scalloped Ovals)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ #122 - Use something new (stamp set, coloring a scene)
Sentimental Sunday #85  - Ribbon
Papertake Weekly - Buttons, Bows, Bling, Blooms {use any or all - I have bows & bling (pearls)}
