Be Joyful

Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand. Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the PEACE OF GOD, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7

These are verses I memorized years ago and they are written on my heart. There are times when I still need to remember not to be anxious, but I eventually listen to my heart saying these verses. I didn't really understand what the "peace of God" was until I experienced it. It's having peace inside you, even when you're going through heartbreaking situations and trials. It does "surpass ALL understanding" and you know it comes from GOD alone. Praise the Lord for His wonderful promises!

I love, love, love what I do. I am passionate about the things I create and the talents God has placed in me. I SO appreciate the time you take to look at my things and the comments you all leave me!

Blessings to you!

Heartfelt Creations - Sun Kissed Wedding Card

Happy Wednesday!

I have a wedding card to show you today using Heartfelt Creations' Sun Kissed Collection that was released last week!

I used the Striped Sun Kissed Fleur Set this time and LOVE it on the vellum paper!  All I did was heat emboss the image with Snow Embossing Powder and die cut it with the matching die.  All 12 of these flowers are on ONE stamp and are cut with ONE die!  Just Awesome!  I colored mine with chalk inks and shaped them a little.  I love how they came out and I hope you do too!

My card is made almost entirely with these gorgeous specialty papers from Paper Temptress.  (The tag image with the sentiment was done on regular vellum instead of the Iridescent Vellum that I used with the flowers, but only because I ran out of their paper!) I love these for a wedding card with how the light softly reflects on it.  You can find their papers here on their website if you want to check them out.

I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
