Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Psalm 48:14, "For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death," is the verse we are concentrating on this week. I just love knowing that God is the same "yesterday, today and forever." I can be fickle, change my mind, be happy one day and mad at the world the next, but God isn't like that. He is consistent and unchanging. Once we accept Him as Lord and Savior, He will guide us for the rest of our lives...all the way thru the gates of death until we join Him in Heaven. The world is such an uncertain place, I'm so thankful to have a loving and knowledgeable Guide. As Warren Wiersbe says, "to trust and obey a Lord who is 'our God' and 'our Guide' is to have a future that is secured and blessed."
For my card today, I used one of my favorite sketches: Papertake Weekly #80. (This sketch challenge site is no longer operational but thankfully they have kept the sketches available.) This sketch allows the focus to really remain on the Scripture verse. No foam tape was used this time so that I could keep the card flat and easy to mail. I love cards that mail for one stamp! The punched butterflies embellish the sentiment panel. Stickles on the flower centers and butterfly bodies are the only other embellishments. I used a stitched rectangle die to add some texture and interest to the sentiment and large patterned paper panels.
Cardstock: The Paper Studio Heavyweight cardstock (white for cardbase), Georgia Pacific (white for sentiment panel), Recollections (Kraft)
Patterned Paper: Echo Park (Have Faith 6 x 6 pad)
Stamp: WORDart by Karen
