Lamentations 3:23 WORDart


This verse is also one of my favorite songs. 

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Time and time again this verse and this song have given me so much hope and strength.  How humbling it is that God would still remain faithful to me when I have not always been faithful to Him, yet He is always there for me when I call on His name. I am so grateful for His mercy and faithfulness to me.

The card~

I stamped  the flower and polka dots in Versamark on Hawaiian Shores cardstock and added some black Stickles to the flower.  The WORDart was printed and die cut with a Labels Four die and the clear rhinestones are colored with a BG15 Copic marker.  I punched holes on both sides of the label and threaded some narrow black polka dot ribbon through it.  I rounded the top corners and adhered it to the true black card base.

The WORDart can be downloaded HERE.

Lovely, Karen. Hawaiian Shores goes so well with black. I had to LOL when you mentioned the song--now I can't get it out of my head! Watch, it'll be played this Sunday--I will get goosebumps if it does!

This is just lovely. I like the sentiment and how you featured it on with the silhoutted flower with the Stickles.

Ah, I'll be singing this wonderful hymn all day now! :) I've always loved turquoise with black and white. Great polka dot accents too. :)

Love your ribbon treatment…and the little bits of black fuzziness in your flower centers.
