He Delivered Me

Deedee has this adorable bear frame as a FREEBIE on the Deedee's Digis blog.  I'm not sure if there's a time limit on it or not so you might want to hop over there and snag it soon.    I couldn't want to color this cutie.  Then when I saw Deedee had The Lord is Our Refuge available, I knew I wanted to combine the two of them. The Lord is Our Refuge is a set that holds special meaning for me.  It has several of my "go to" verses when times are tough and/or I need comfort.

Psalm 34:4 is an extra special verse because it's one I "discovered" when I was facing a difficult health crisis.  I had many worries & fears about what was ahead.  When I discovered this verse, I clung to it just like you would a trapeze bar and held on for dear life.  The Lord was faithful (as always).  He took away my fears and gave me peace.

The card is a 5" square.  In Word, I cropped the verse to separate out the Scripture reference so that I could move it down a bit.  That's one of the wonders of digis!  The bear & frame are colored with Copics and then fussy cut.  I matted the image panel on kraft cardstock.

A border punch helps set off a strip of patterned paper across the middle and a bow with a button middle accents the image panel.  A little faux stitching, some pearls in the corners and some pop dots later and the card is done.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Bazzill (green), Recollections (kraft)
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Kioshi)
Stamps:  Deedee's Digis (Bear Frame, The Lord is Our Refuge)
Copics:  E11, 31, 33, 35, 37, YG03, BG000
Embellishments/Tools:  Sharpie Fine Point pen (brown), ribbon (Michael's), baker's twine (The Twinery), pearls (Queen & Company), button (La Mode), SU ticket punch, Fiskars border punch (Apron Lace)
