Welcome back for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week we're focusing on 1 Timothy 4:12, "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." In this verse, the Apostle Paul was talking to his son in the faith, Timothy. He was encouraging Timothy to not let his youth get in the way of being an example to others. Paul knew and was reminding Timothy, that just because someone is young doesn't mean they can't be mature in the faith and used by God. God can use people of all ages to accomplish His work and to bring others to Him. I am frequently challenged by the way some young people I know live for the Lord and how they let His grace in their lives shine forth to others.
For my card this week, I chose to make an easel card. I colored this little boy and his pumpkin with Copics and then die cut and matted this panel. I used square dies to make my photo corners. A baker's twine bow accents the border strip across the middle of the background panel. Some Nuvo Crystal Drops accept the little boy's buttons on his jacket.
I also did some interior decorating on the greeting panel.
