As for Me...

Wednesday means it's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  This week's focus verse is Psalm 17:15, "As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness.  I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness."  In this verse, David is looking forward to the wonders of Heaven. He knows the Heavenly Father is righteous and is greatly anticipating "waking up" in Heaven where he knows he will also be righteous.  Like us, David probably got tired of fighting against sin.  If we have trusted Christ as our Saviour, we too can anticipate a life without sin in Heaven.  In the words of the song writer, "Oh, that will be glory!"



For my card today, I chose to make a criss-cross card.  I haven't made one in awhile and decided to revisit this design.  However, this time, I chose to make it a 5.5" square.  A ribbon was stretched across the front and tucked under the patterned paper panels.  Stickles was added to the flower centers in the paper.




The sentiment panel was double matted with Spellbinders dies.  The scalloped oval just asks for some sort of bling so clear rhinestones were added.  Three flowers finish off the sentiment panel.  The little girl is from the Pray Without Ceasing Girls digi set from Deedee's Digis.  This set comes with 12 color images (3 skin tones and 4 hair colors for each skin tone), 1 outline image and 13 sentiments.  There is a corresponding boys sets as well.  I chose to use one of the pre-colored images.  She was fussy cut and popped up over the edge of the sentiment panel.  Wink of Stella was added to the little girl's eyes and to the tops of the flowers.




The pull-out card was edged with a border die cut and the panel includes plenty of space for writing a note.  A strip of the patterned paper decorates the writing panel.

Supplies:
Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), The Paper Studio (pink)
Patterned Paper:  Unknown - it's from a RAK
Stamps:  WORDart by Karen (Psalm 17:15), Deedee's Digis (Pray Without Ceasing Girls)
