Hebrews 4:16

Good Morning Friends.  How is everyone today?  I hope that those of you effected by Sandy are safe and  sound.  My heart goes out to everyone affected.  

Today, I am featuring a card made for Word Art Wednesday.  This challenge blog is all about using Scripture and uplifting quotes to make cards.  Cassandra Cushman is the founder of the blog and Word Art Designer, along with  Karen M who designs the Word Art also.  This is my first challenge with them because I couldn't get the art to download.  I finally switched computers and voila...I have word art.

Our Scripture for this week comes from the Book of Hebrews, Chapter 4 Verse 16.

Excuse the crookedness of the picture.  I'm still not too good at it.  I chose a pink and green color scheme just because it's one of my favorites.  I found this paper in my old stash and I do believe it's from DCWV.  I used a piece of scalloped ribbon in pink for the middle.  I matted the Scripture on three different mats and used pop dots to adhere it.  I added pink rhinestones to three corners and a handmade satin flower with pearl center to the other corner.  The flowers are very easy to make.  Just cut three graduated circles out of costume satin.  You can make the as big or as small as you desire.  Using your heat gun, hold the piece of satin at and angle until it begins to melt and curl.  Move fairly quickly so you don't scorch the edges.  You can also use a candle to do this, but I haven't mastered that yet.  Once you have your three curled pieces, attach them together by sewing a pearl bead to the center.

I do thank you for stopping by to visit today.  I hope you have enjoyed my card.  Be safe today and God bless you.


  1. Hi Emily! This is a beautiful card. I've always loved the combo of green and purple, and that shabby little flower is darling! Thanks so much for sharing this lovely card with us at Word Art Wednesday. I wanted to tell you how to save the word art for next time. You're never required to use it, but just in case you want it, here is what you do:
    Hover your mouse/cursor over the word art. Once you're over it, RIGHT CLICK your mouse, then click on "Save Picture As", and then save it to your computer just like you would save a picture. Then when you go to use it (in Word or another program), you just Insert Picture. It's really easy!
    Thanks again for playing along with us, and I hope to see you again soon. It's GREAT having you with us!
