Psalm 34:1 WORDart


Sometimes the valley seems too deep and the problems just too overwhelming, but I have found that when I bless His name and praise Him it makes it so much easier.  Does the situation change? No, but my perspective does.  I begin to feel joy, and love, and peace that is bigger than my circumstance.  I feel that confidence that God is with me and I am not facing this alone.  He is so much bigger and wiser than I will ever be and He is in control.  My days seem to go so much smoother when I take the time and make a conscious effort to bless Him and praise Him throughout my day.  God is so good to me, I could never praise Him enough!

For the card~

I printed the WORDart onto vellum and then added some 1/4 inch score-tape to the top and bottom.  I then added black micro beads.  They stick really well to score-tape!  I used some super fine glitter to fill in the empty places that didn’t get completely filled with the black beads.  I stamped the red cardstock with the sheet music stamp using Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder and adhered it to my card front.  I then adhered the vellum to the card using 1/8 inch score-tape behind the black bead strips.
