Scripture Series: Mourning Into Dancing Easel Card---Join Us for an Inspirational Challenge at Word Art Wednesday!

Greetings fellow Crafters all over the world.  Another week has passed and here we are bringing you another Challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  My busy days are getting even more busy and I am sometimes surprised that I come up with a card project before deadlines.  All I can say is that God is always faithful as there are days the creative juice is not flowing and in those times, I would browse for some inspiration on books and magazines and begin to create.  To my amazement, I always end up with a totally different card than the card I thought I would take inspiration from.  Yet, that's the way I like it.  I know that many of you plan the lay-out and materials for your projects ahead of time.  I tried to do that but just not my style.  I work in a moment basis...Whatever feels right at that very hour, I should say!  I believe that the Lord Jesus guides my every move so, at the end of each creation, I can honestly say, "Well done."

So, here's my featured card for this week at Word Art Wednesday.  My beautiful image is from Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps Collection that I colored with my ProMarker, Prismacolor and Sharpie Markers.  Added some glitters too (Stickles-Diamond) for that much needed sparkle.  My DP's are from Recollection Papers and my CS are Kraft for my base card of 5.5-inch (square) and some brown-gray for matting and die-cuts.  I uses my biggest Nestabilities die for that lacey square and the MS Scallop Punch to mat the Snowflake image from Fiskars which I stamped using Color Box (Chestnut Roan) chalk ink.  I attached some pink satin ribbon and some gems for added dimension.  The main sentiment is the Word Art we are sharing with you this week and it's from Psalm 30:11-12.  You can get it for free by visiting the WAW Challenge Blog, make a project using it and link it to our Challenge,  However, if you have another project with uplifting message, you are more than welcome to join us too.  We have great prizes awaiting our winner at the end of the week and will be announced together with next week's Challenge.  Anyway, to finish up this card, I added more colors to the dots in the image's hat and scarf by using some Gelly Roll pens and I did stitching all over this card, inside and out.  I am very happy with the results of this project.  So, what do you think?  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

MOURNING INTO DANCING EASEL CARD WITH ENVELOPE-BOX:

The message of this card is very dear to my heart because it describes exactly how the Lord Jesus came to my life and changed the sorrows of my past to joy that surpasses all understanding---with hope on a bright future not only in this lifetime but through life eternal.  Because of what Jesus accomplished on the Cross---His death, burial and resurrection---He has freed me from the law of sin and death and brought me to newness of life through His Holy Spirit.  Because of this, I will not be silent...I will proclaim to the whole world the hope that is in Christ and offer to Him an everlasting song of praise.   No matter what happens in this age, my feet stands on the Rock of Revelation which is Christ, Himself, the only hope of glory...
