Scripture Series: Every Good and Perfect Gift Easel Card--Join us for Another Inspirational Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Hi there, dear Crafters!   We have a new Challenge today at Word Art Wednesday and I would love for each and everyone of you to join us.  We are featuring a free Word Art that you can download for free  at the Challenge blog and you can use it to make a project.  Now, if you have an artwork that has an uplifting message and don't want to use the free Word Art at this time, you are more than welcome to enter that project to our Challenge.  The most important thing is to enjoy the process, encourage someone and possibly win a prize, right?

Anyway, here is the card I created to bring you some inspiration.  I started with a 5.5-inch Square Kraft CS as my base card and added a white and more Kraft CS.  My DP is from My Mind's Eye. I used this wonderful Digi stamp from Make it Crafty called "The Valley Above" and colored the wonderful image with ProMarker and Prismacolor markers and inked with Tim Holtz (Frayed Burlap) Distress.  I stamped a scribble image from Hot Off the Press to add depth to the DP.  I laid out a white lace, paper-pieced and mat a flower from Ditto stamp, added a brad and lots of pearls and stitched all over this project.   I am happy with how the featured sentiment from James 1:17 complimented this wonderful image.   Simply amazing!  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    My Mum's Craft shop featuring "A Sketch"
2.    Make it Monday featuring "Anything Goes" 
3.    Eclectic Ellapu featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.    2 Sisters featuring "Anything Goes"

EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT EASEL CARD WITH ENVELOPE-BOX:

This has been an inspirational project for me because the truth of this scripture is plain to see to anyone who would take the time to look at God's creation and recognize His remarkable knowledge and power.  Everything has it's order,  purpose, meaning and a destiny.  We look at the verses in Genesis 1 and we'll see that God looked at each creation He made everyday to the fifth day and saw that they were all good.   He then created man on the 6th day and made us unto His own image and likeness and at the end of this Chapter, He looked at everything He hath made and He said, "Behold, it was very good."

This shows me that everything God has created is perfect and is made with a good purpose.  But when man fell into the same sin of rebellion that the enemy originally committed, we all woke up to our imperfection and the battle went on.  But the good news is, Jesus came to restore us to our original place where we can freely come the the Father and experienced all the good things Adam lost.  Jesus is the Only Way, the Truth and the Life and No One can come to the Father but by Him (John 14:6).  He is the One and Perfect Gift that the Father gave us that we should put our faith on.  He is our ONLY way out...I received Jesus Christ in my life as my personal Lord and Savior. God Almighty has translated me from the kingdom of darkness to the Kingdom of His dear beloved Son."  (Colossians 1:13)....To Him be the glory!
