The Lord is Faithful... {WAW #81}

This week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday is 2 Thessalonians 3:3 which says, "But the Lord is faithful who shall stablish you and keep you from evil."  I don't know about you but I could camp out on the first 5 words of that verse forever.  "But the Lord is faithful...."  In our world today, it seems like integrity and faithfulness are forgotten character qualities. Dictionary.com defines faithfulness as: true to one's word, promises, vows, etc.; reliable, trusted, or believed.  Our God is One who always keeps His promises and is always reliable and able to be trusted.  I hope that comforts you and gives you the sense of security that it does me.



For my card this week, I used Mojo Monday's sketch (MOJO294) for the card design. I let the papers do most of the work and {for me} kept things fairly simple.  I added some stickles to the flowers in the bottom panel and as accents across the top.  Stickles make everything better, right?  :)  Some faux stitching also adds some definition to the edges of the papers.

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Picadilly 6 x 6 pad)
WordArt by Karen Murray for Word Art Wednesday
Embellishments/Tools:  crochet lace (Hobby Lobby), baker's twine (Jillibean), rhinestones (Queen & Co. - Baby Blue), CM Fine tip pen (black), Stickles (Star Dust), Spellbinders (Labels Four, Labels Four Small)
