For a Dear Friend and a Wordart Freebie

I have several friends who could use some encouragement right now -- OK to be honest, couldn't that be said of all of us?  Anyway, when I was "playing" with the new Sweet 'n Sassy Digi release, one particular friend came to mind.  I had the card I showed you yesterday planned out in my head.  I printed out the digis I'd need and colored them.  However, as sometimes happens, the card had a mind of its own {ha!} and went a different direction.  Since I had the digis on today's project already colored, I decided to make this bookmark for her and I'll send it with yesterday's card.

In Word, I re-sized each of the Flower Block digis to 1.25", lined them up vertically and then printed them out.  After coloring them with Copics (you will notice my flowers aren't always "real life" colors), I cut out the entire panel and matted it twice with patterned paper.  I highlighted each flower with some stickles.  The sentiment panel was also double-matted and each scallop got a dot of stickles.  I wanted the overall look to be feminine and cheery.  This is a larger bookmark - it is 7" x 2.5".  Since it's a bookmark, I resisted the urge to add bling, pearls or even ribbons.

Cardstock:  Wassau, Copic
Patterned Paper:  The Paper Studio
Stamps:  Sweet 'n Sassy Digis (Tulip Block, Daffodil Block, Lily Block, Magnolia Block, Flower Block Sentiments 1)
Copics: Daffodil: Y11, 13, 15, YG03, 05, BG10; Tulip: R81, 83, 85, YG03, 05, BG10; Lily: V04.06, 09, Y17, YG03, 05, BG10; Magnolia: B21, 23, Y35, BG10
Tools/Embellishments:  Spellbinders (Petite Ovals Large & Small, Petite Scalloped Ovals Small), Stickles (Star Dust, Yellow)

I'm entering my bookmark in the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday #71 - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday #260 - Anything Goes
Craft Room Challenge - From Me to You (Make a gift)
Spark Your Creativity Challenge #7 - Anything Goes
If you are feeling overwhelmed, go to God's Word.  Below is a verse that is a great encouragement to my husband and I.  Feel free to download my wordart and use it.  I would appreciate you sending folks to my blog rather than just sharing the digi.  If you like the wordart and would like me to share others, please leave a comment below. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a good weekend!

Hey Stephanie! I absolutely LOVE this verse, and whenever I am overwhelmed, that is exactly where I go. Thanks for sharing this - you are always such a blessing and encouragement to me through your art and through your words of wisdom.

Thank you for the scripture. I do go to God's word many times a day. The book mark is lovely. I like the flowers very much.
I am so thankful to finally have a computer. Windows 8 has a few challenges and it has a bilingual keyboard which is a wee bit different. It has been a very long three weeks and I have missed seeing your beautiful artwork.
God Bless you and yours,
