Beautiful Feet

Hello! I hope your week is going well. It's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday and this week we're focusing on Isaiah 52:7, "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace: that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God Reigneth!" I don't know about you, but except maybe for baby feet, there are not too many sets of feet that I would describe as beautiful. However, this verse tells us that those who spread the good news of Christ and His work of salvation have beautiful feet! When someone brings you good news, you are glad to see them and you look very favorably upon them. When you bring the good news of salvation and proclaim a peaceful message (be the one that has a positive outlook instead of always remarking on the negative), you will be a breath of fresh air in our negative world. This week, let's work on having beautiful feet.

This week's card is pretty simple. The finished card is 5"x7". I used scraps of patterned paper from an old Basic Grey line of paper and adhered them to the brown cardstock base. This panel was dry embossed with an embossing folder. Some photo corner die cuts frame the sentiment panel and Copic-colored image. The image is from one of our fantastic sponsors: Fresh Brewed Designs. The die cut mat behind the image panel was accented with a white gel pen. Stickles add some sparkle to the flowers and butterflies in the image. Some punched butterflies (with stickle bodies) and small gems finish off the card front. Yes, I realize I've used the same butterfly punch on my last 3 cards. I'll "step away from the punch" next week. *grin*
