Word Art Wednesday Challenge 130

Another week done & another month to boot – hard to believe we’re already into May as Christmas seems only a few wks past & the weather as yet at least hasn’t quite hit spring :(

This week’s card is in lovely soft brown colours that I absolutely adore, but can’t get the papers for any longer – they’re from a very old Paper Pizazz pack which I don’t even know the name of to hunt on Ebay or elsewhere for sadly, but someday perhaps I’ll come across them again.

I decided to change my normal design for this card & used two triangles instead to split the card in half along the diagonal which works perfectly with the circle sentiment which I’ve matted onto a 10 cm doily. 

Finished it off with a matching bow and a gold glitter border peel off to match the gold edging of the ribbon – just neatens up the ribbon edges at the ends as the cuts are prone to fraying.

I've just put an ordinary insert inside rather than matching it as I'd so little of the paper left to do so sadly.

LOVE this verse but caution you to remember it’s a single verse & thus shouldn’t be taken on its own to mean anything major – rather use it to be inspired to read the whole passage:

If you want to understand the issues behind that you could consider reading this article:

  1. I really like how you paired the doily with the scalloped circle. It works well to highlight the verse. I also like your link and the article. A teacher once made the same point about that particular verse and it stuck with me. Now, when I feel stuck and overwhelmed, that is when I think of this verse- a "going through" kind of encouragement rather than an "escaping" kind of encouragement. So true!

    I'm so glad to have found you through Word Art Wednesday's challenge blog. I'm offering blog candy this month and would be honored if you joined our comment party:
