Be Thou An Example

This week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday is 1 Timothy 4:12, "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."  This verse is a great reminder that even those who are "young" have a responsibility to be a good example.  I think we short-change young people so often by thinking they are not capable of being responsible and just assume they couldn't possibly know what they are doing.  This verse tells us that young people are to be responsible and can be an example to "older" people in how they talk, how they treat others, and in the way they conduct themselves.  Let's remember that we're all an example....the question is are we a good one or a bad one?

I used the SCS sketch #443 for my card this week.  I cut a fancy tag die cut in half and used it to frame the sentiment panel.  One of the vertical panels was embossed with an embossing folder.  I stamped a solid butterfly stamp in green ink and then stamped over it with a dotted butterfly in a darker shade of green.  The butterfly was fussy cut and given a body and antenna ends of pearls.  A rhinestone flight path and rhinestones on the fancy tag finished off the card.
