Thou Art Lord Alone

I really like this week's focus verse at Word Art Wednesday.  I know, I say that just about every week, don't I?  LOL  Our verse is Nehemiah 9:6, "Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee."  We are studying Genesis 1-11 on Wednesday nights at church.  We are still in chapter 1 and I think this verse is such a confirmation that God truly did create EVERYTHING.  Things did not just "happen" or evolve but God created them in six, literal, 24-hours days.  And as this verse reminds us, He preserves them as well.  Or as it says in Hebrews 1:3, He is, "...upholding all things by the word of his power..."  We truly serve an awesome God!!

This verse reminds me of how majestic God is and I wanted my card to reflect a little of that.  Black, red and cream say elegance and majesty to me.  I started with a deep red cardstock.  After embossing it and spraying it with shimmer mist, it was matted on black cardstock.

Several die cuts were layered on top of each other separated by pop dots.  I was even able to include on of my favorite doily dies (French Pastry Doily) by one of this week's sponsors, Cheery Lynn Designs.   A bow with a pearl button center finishes off the front of this 5.5" square card.

An embossed and misted strip of red cardstock also decorates the interior.
