{Charity}

I hope your week is going well.  It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  This week our focus verse is 1 Corinthians 16:14, "Let All your things be done with charity." Charity is another word for "love."  In this verse we're encouraged to let all our actions be governed by love.  Wow!  What a different world this would be if we all did so! If I wasn't so Me-focused, and based all my actions on love for others, life would be a lot more pleasant...or me and for those around me.



Imagine That! Digis by Kris is one of our generous sponsors this week.  Some of us were provided with images to use this week.  I was able to play with the adorable Honey & Boo Balloons set.  This set is perfect for Valentine's Day but can also be used year round for birthday, friendship, or general encouragement cards.  To start my card, I used the edge of a scalloped oval die cut as a mask and inked up a piece of cardstock to look like clouds.  Then after printing my WORDart  and image over the clouds, I die cut them with a circle die.  I tried printing the WORDart first but the computer ink smeared when I added the clouds.  I probably could have let it dry more and not had a problem but I didn't have time to wait that long.  I printed a second image the same size and fussy cut it.  This let me glue it on top so that it could "float" off the edge of the circle.  This piece was matted several times with various die cuts before being adhered to a circle card base.  Glossy Accents makes the balloons shine and gives them some texture.  Some blue rhinestones add a little sparkle.



The interior of the card has two more die cut circles.  Yes, I went a little circle die cut crazy on this card!  The doily die cut on the front helps the card stand up without rocking over.


Supplies:
Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Bazzill (blue)
Stamps:  WORDart by Karen, Imagine That! (Honey & Boo Balloons)
Ink:  Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass)
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders dies (Circle Small, Picot Edge Circle, Grand Circles, Petite Scalloped Circles Large, Petite Scalloped Oval Small), Cheery Lynn die (English Tea Party), Glossy Accents, Copic 100, rhinestones from stash (sorry I lost the packaging)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
