The Lord Taketh Pleasure in His People

I hope you are having a good week.  Here we are mid-week and it's time for a new challenge at the Word Art Wednesday blog.  This week we're focusing on Psalm 149:4, "For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation." The part that really jumped out at me was the first part: "For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people..."  Wow!  The King of King and Lord of Lords, Creator of the Universe and Savior of the World takes pleasure in those who belong to Him. Last weekend, my husband and I attended our daughter's college graduation where she received her Master's degree.  As we spent time with her and her husband, we just enjoyed being with them.  It didn't matter what we were doing, we just took pleasure in their company.  In a much greater way, that's the way the Lord feels about us.  He just wants to spend time with us, fellowship with us, and enjoy being together.  That is an amazing thing to me!

I used a set from Mark's Finest Papers called Amaryllis Definition on today's card.  It's a fun one to color.  I also used this week's free digi from WORDart by Karen.  You can pick up this digi on the Word Art Wednesday blog. This week's Mojo Monday card sketch was used for the card design. The finished card is 5x7.  I changed up the sketch a bit by removing the banners on the top left.

  After coloring the image with Copics, I fussy cut it and used it to accent the verse panel.  A white gel pen adds highlighting to the flower and leaves.  Stickles and a Wink of Stella marker add some sparkle. The navy circle and white cardstock strip were dry embossed for added interest.  The scallops on the border punched edging has been accented with small rhinestones. 

The layered circles are popped up off the card base. A little interior decorating finishes off the card but still leave plenty of room for a note.
