WAW - 2 Corinthians 1:5

This week's post for my Word Art Wednesday Challenge is going to be quick.  Our 4 year old grandson is spending a couple days with us and I'm busy with playdoh, toy trains, hide-and-seek, and space battles.  Life is good!!

Our challenge verse is 2 Corinthians 1:15, "For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ."  The old adage says, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."  The spiritual correlation is discernible in this verse by the Apostle Paul.  The believer discovers the fullness of the consolation (comfort, solace) of Christ in direct proportion to the sufferings of Christ abounding in him. 

One of our sponsors this week is Mark's Finest Papers.  I chose to paper piece one of the images from their Dogwood Blossoms clear stamp set for the focal image on this easel card. The embossed background has liquid pearl accents to the flower centers.  The flower is popped up over an embossed and matted panel. A button from my stash tied with embroidery thread.  

Some cut outs from the Sweet 'n Sassy Lacey Eyelet border die add a little extra interest to the pattern paper strips on the main panel and on the easel stopper strip.  Some distress stickles finish off these little flowers.
