Our in the Name of the Lord

This week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday is Psalm 124:8, "Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth."  It is such a comfort to know that the Creator of the universe, is willing to help me.  He is so powerful that just His name is all that is needed.  Hebrews 1:3 says that He is, "...upholding all things by the word of His power..."  He spoke the world into being and is upholding them with His word.  Wow!  As the songs says, "What a mighty God we serve!"

My card this week has very soft & subdued colors.  I used cream to go with the lighter aqua and salmon colors.  My card design came from this week's The Sweet Stop Sketch (SSS221).

I paper pieced the flowers and added pearls in their centers.  I used one of the Black Bold Borders from Milk N Coffee Digital Stamps to accent the row of flowers.  The border was colored with copics.  Milk N Coffee Digital Stamps is one of our sponsors this week.  The salmon colors squares behind the flowers were embossed with an embossing folder.

Cardstock:  Recollections
Patterned Paper:  Stampin' Up 
Stamps:  WordArt by Karen, Inkadinkado (Doodle Flowers), Milk Coffee Stamps (Black Bold Borders)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools/Embellishments: Spellbinders (Deckled Rectangles Large & Small), Copics (R22, BG01, 10), Queen & Co. pearls, Cuttlebug embossing folder (Swiss Dots)

I hope you're having a good week.  It's been unseasonably cool here.  We're truly enjoying it!
