God's Creative Bouquet

Hello! I hope you're having a good week. It's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This week our challenge verse is, Hebrews 1:10, "And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands." The Lord we love and serve is the one that made the foundations of the earth and created the heavens. He is the one that "upholds all things by the word of his power." (Hebrews 1:3) I know this week's verse was picked a while ago but what a great reminder for the times in which we live. The same Lord that made the foundations of the earth, created the heavens and upholds all things by the word of His power is taking care of us today. None of this takes Him by surprise and our King is still on the throne. When we take our eyes off the Lord and look around us, it's a pretty scary sight. However, I read a reminder recently that our King has never lost a battle. That has really stuck with me. Let's keep our eyes on the Lord and let Him handle all of this for us. He didn't promise it would be easy but He did promise to take care of us and love us no matter what. That's good enough for me.

Stamp Simply is our sponsor this week. I was able to play with some of their products and use them on my card this week. First I stamped the image from the Floral Cluster-Summer Roses with Memento ink on white cardstock. I colored the image with Copics and added white gel pen details. The Floral Cluster and Sprigs die set was used to cut out the image. (Side note: This die will also work with 3 other stamps sets made by Stamp Simply) Since I knew the image would hang off the edge of the card, I cut an additional Floral Cluster die cut out of light blue cardstock to back my colored image and give it a more finished look. I used a floral cardstock instead of patterned paper and embellished the flowers with Wink of Stella and a white gel pen. Stamp Simply's Fishtail Sentiment Banners were used to die cut the verse and the mat was fussy cut from light blue cardstock. The edges of the mat were highlighted with Wink of Stella and the rest of the card was given some white gel pen detailing.

Thanks to Stamp Simply for providing the stamp sets and dies for me to use in this project. I genuinely enjoy using their products. The stamps give a crisp image right out of the package, the Floral Clusters suite of products is pure genius and the Fishtail Sentiment Banners are so versatile. They are one of the die sets that I use the most on my card projects.
