Philippians 4:4 WORDart

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

“Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.” 

rejoice – to be glad, take delight, to make joyful. 

alway (always) – every time, on every occasion, without exception, all the time, continuously, uninterruptedly, forever

We are told in Philippians 4:4 to rejoice always.  The word rejoice is synonymous with revel, exult and glory.  These three words mean to take great pleasure or delight in.  I think it is apparent that the Lord wants us to take great delight in Him. Jesus Christ died for us that we might live in victory!  I think that is definitely something to rejoice about!

The card~

I started with a card base of Pure Poppy.  The patterned paper is from a digital kit by Angie Briggs called “Just Be You”.  I stamped a leaf image from Turning A New Leaf in Versamark onto Aqua Mist cardstock and then embossed it using Transcendence embossing powder.  I also stamped a leaf image onto the focal point and the background paper with Aqua Mist ink.  I added some glitter to the leaves and the scalloped edges using a glue pen.  I matted the focal point off center to a pure poppy scalloped circle and adhered it to my card using foam tape.  A pure poppy bow with an aqua mist button finished off the card. 

The Wordart is available for download HERE.
