Psalm 23:4 WORDart

I apologize for the lack of posts lately.  Time has sort of got away from me a little bit.  We are taking this week for Spring Break so I am hoping to find some time to spend in my craft room.  I have big plans to clean my house and do some spring decorating.  I love to decorate for the different seasons and I am so ready to put away the winter stuff and bring out the flowers.  I am sure everyone is feeling that same longing for spring as I am.

For this week’s WORDart I chose to use the verse from Psalm 23:4, “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, They comfort me.”  So often we think of this verse when we are facing a situation where loss of life is involved, but I am so glad it is not limited to that.  God is always with us, no matter what we are facing.  Whether it be loneliness, hurt feelings, fear or depression, whatever the case may be, He is there to comfort us and we have no need to fear.  He is such an awesome God!

The card ~ I used Melon Berry as the card base and I stamped the flower from In Bloom in Versamark ink.  The WORDart is cut with a curved rectangle nestie die and I stamped the flower in Aqua Mist in the corners.  I then tied some Aqua Mist grosgrain ribbon around the card and added a Melon Berry button tied with embroidery floss. 

The WORD art can be downloaded HERE.

I think you conveyed the message that you wanted to send very well. These kinds of cards can be tricky to embellish...you did a great job with the ribbon and button. REally nice card, Karen
