Word Art Wednesday Guest Designer

Happy Wednesday!  So excited you are able to stop by for another card for Word Art Wednesday.  

I'm still on my mission to use what I have before buying more.  I have my eyes on some of the new Papertrey Ink goodies and Altenew as well, but I just can't justify anything new until I have used what I have here.  Please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem.  

This verse this week was so beautiful.  There is always a reason to praise God, that is for sure.  When I read this verse and let it sink into my soul, I just kept thinking about flowers and new life.  I really enjoy sending bright flower cards in the winter, it gives hope and spreads joy.
 Here are the details of the card.  I printed the verse from Word Art Wednesday on PTI white paper.  I then grabbed some PTI Aqua Mist card stock and die cut out a space for the verse to sit.  It was looking a little flat, so I grabbed a PTI stencil and added just a little bit of tone on tone color and design to the blue background panel.  Now it was time to embellish with flowers.  It was a lot of fun playing with Gran's Garden stamp set for the first time.  I now have a big pile of flowers die cut, stamped and ready for future cards.  I think I spent an hour just playing with color combinations and having a fun time. 
I'm hoping in the close up you can see the shimmer that was added to the card with my wink of stella pen.  Love how that adds a little something without taking the card over the top.  The flowers are all popped up with dimensional adhesive as well.

It's a good life!
Terri E.
