Floral Frame

Hello, it's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week's focus verse is Psalm 33:11, "The counsel of the Lord standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations." This verse is an example of the unchanging nature of God. He knows what is best and His Word is unchanging. His counsel and admonitions for the people in the Bible are still good and applicable to us today. We still shouldn't have idols or worship any god but Him. We should still be faithful to our spouse and honor our parents. God wants the best for us because He loves us. So often we see the "thou shalt nots" in the Bible as things designed to keep us from having fun. Instead, they are really the Lord saying to us, "don't hurt yourself" and His "thou shalts" are Him saying, "help yourself to some happiness." We tell our children not to touch a hot stove because even though they don't realize the danger, we know it will burn them. In the same way, the Lord tells us not to do certain things because He knows they will hurt us. God's Word is forever and just as true today as it was when He inspired the human authors to write the Bible.

Last week I joined in the fun at the Island Time Crop sponsored by the SG Scrap Squad. This FB group put on a week long online celebration of National Scrapbooking Day. While I rarely scrapbook anymore, I plan to participate in the card and coloring challenges (the challenges aren't due until 5/31). Adult Coloring Pages are a big trend now. I enjoy finding (free) online coloring pages and then sizing them down so that I can use them on cards. That is what I did with today's card front. It was for one of the coloring challenges; we were to use 5 shades of pink, red, orange or purple and 3 shades of green to color a page of any theme and any size. After coloring the image, I cut it down to slightly smaller than an A2 card front. I also cut out the center panel. I ran a black copic around the cut edges to give it more of a finished look. I adhered fun foam to the back of the image panel to pop it up over the sentiment panel. I added stickles to the flower centers and some random lavender stickle dots for added sparkle. Once the coloring was done, this card came together very quickly.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
