But Without Faith

This week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday is Hebrews 11:6, "But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is rewarder of them that diligently seek him."  This verse comes at the beginning of what is commonly called the "Hall of Fame of Faith." The rest of this chapter is full of examples of men and women in the Bible who showed a strong faith in God.  Pleasing God starts with having faith in Him.  I want to live in such a way that my name could be written in that Hall of Fame of Faith.  It's not easy but "without faith it is impossible to please Him."

This week one of our sponsors is Bugaboo Stamps.  They generously provided the DT with images to use.  I used Lil Girl Sign It for my card.  One of the features of digis that I really like is the ability to resize them to make them fit any project.  I layered this week's verse onto this little girl's sign and then colored the girl, sign and background with my Copics.    I used Mojo Monday's Sketch 221 as the inspiration for my card design.  As usual, I changed up a few things.  The edges of the patterned paper background were inked.

After coloring the image and the background with copic markers, a white gel pen was used to give the bow and top of the shirt some polka dots. I die cut some hearts for the upper right side of the image panel.  The girl's eyes, bow and the hearts were coated with glossy accents.  The blue button on top of the bow adds another touch of blue and completes the blue visual triangle with her eyes and bow.  Faux stitching and some die cut scallops complete the front of the card.

I did a little interior decorating to finish off the card.  I don't think you can see it but I added a die cut heart to carry that theme to the inside of the card.
