Week's #3 and #4 Scripture Challenge Words were 'Beauty' and 'Wait'. Well, beauty was easy for me, nothing is more beautiful than a perfect rose! I used an image from the retired Stampin Up! set 'Abundant Joy' and colored it with Copic Markers. The scripture verse is computer generated and reads 'Perfect in beauty, God shines forth.' Psalm 50:2. Card stock colors are Pretty in Pink, white, and black. The designer paper is from DCWV. Adhesive crystals, ribbon, and Hodgepodge Hardware from Stampin Up! were added for embellishment.
My last card uses both the sketch and color challenge from Paper Craft Planet. This card was made using the challenge word 'Wait'. I picked the bible verse 'Wait for the Lord: Be strong and take heart and Wait for the Lord". The word 'Heart' really stuck out to me as I read this scripture. It is hard in life to 'Wait on the Lord' and we do need to 'take heart' or we'll never be able to do it. I used a heart as the focal point for this card to emphasize how we need to 'take heart' as we wait on the Lord.
To make the card, I used a stencil to hand cut the heart, then I embossed it with the 'Swiss Dots' Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The Kiwi Kiss panel was cut using the Stampin Up! Scallop Border Punch.
