2 Timothy 1:7 - WAW #28

I am truly enjoying my month as a Guest Designer for Word Art Wednesday.  I'm so glad this month has 5 Wednesdays so that I get to play a little longer.  :)

This week our Scripture verse is 2 Timothy 1:7 which states, "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."  This verse encourages me that the Lord doesn't want me to be fearful.  Instead He wants me to be strong in Him, to be loving and to be thinking clearly.  So when I find myself fretting and fearful about a certain situation, I know it's Satan trying to get my eyes off the Lord and to discourage me.

After coloring my bird with copics (I make no pretense to be color accurate in my coloring of birds and flowers), I colored a 2nd set of the flowers and fussy cut them.  I then popped up the flowers in front of the bird on pop dots for some added dimension.  You can see this a little better in the picture below.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  Prima (madeline)
Stamps:  WAW 5-15-12, Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Bluebird digi)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Mojo Monday 241 - Sketch

Paper Sundaes #120 - Things with wings
Paper Pretties Monday Challenge #39 (PPMC39) - Glitter (I used a glitter pen on the flowers and stickles for the flower centers. I also used a dot of glitter pen on the bird's eye)

I hope you'll come along and play with us this week at Word Art Wednesday.  Don't forget to stop by and pick up your free Scripture digi.  To play along, you may use the freebie or another other Scripture you're using on your project.

There are so many verses that remind us not to be afraid. Thanks for portraying this one in such an important way. ~ Abby
