He's Not Far Away

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another great challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  This week we're looking at a verse in the New Testament.  Acts 17:27 states, "That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after Him, and find Him, though He be not far from every one of us:"  This verse is talking about the omnipresence of God (the fact that He is everywhere at once).  He is near to each of us and has His eye upon us at all times.  It doesn't matter where we are, city, country, on land, in the air, on the water, or even out in space, God is never far from us.  Romans 8:38-39 states, "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." WOW!!  That's something to carry you through life and encourage you during the tough times.

For my card today, I wanted something bright and spring-y.  All around outside, we're seeing signs of new growth.  The trees are budding, lawns need mowed and flowers are starting to bloom.  Our neighbors have put up a few bird feeders and some beautiful birds are coming to feed there.  I chose to use this beautiful image of a wildflower bouquet and colored it with copics.  It was matted with black and put on a white embossed panel.  This really helps the colors in the wildflowers pop.  You can't tell in the pics but the flowers and butterfly were coated with a Wink of Stella clear glitter marker.

This week's verse was printed on vellum and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  It was then wrapped around the image panel.
