It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week our verse is 2 Corinthians 5:21, "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." As we anticipate celebrating Easter later this month, it's good to turn our thoughts to what we are really celebrating. This verse reminds us that Christ took our sin debt, even though He had never sinned, so that we could be made righteous (just as if we'd never sinned). While I've been taught this truth my whole life, I never cease to be amazed that Christ died for ME. Why? Because He loves me so much that He wants me to be in Heaven with Him someday. And you know, He loves you that much too. If you haven't accepted His gift of salvation, I hope you will today.
For my card today, I went with a black and gold color scheme. The black represents my sin that Christ took on Himself. The gold represents His royalty and the home in Heaven that He has provided for me. I used this week's sketch by Mojo Monday (Mojo339). I turned the sketch 90 degrees and the finished card is 3.5" x 5.5"
I popped up the verse panel with pop dots for some dimension and accented it with black pearls.
The black and gold theme was carried through to the inside of the card.
