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!

Majestic Morning Bouquet

Happy Wednesday!

It's time for some Heartfelt Creation inspiration!  I have another project this week with the Majestic Morning Collection, this time a card using the flower vase image from the Majestic Morning Bouquet Set.

I LOVE this flower bouquet image!!!  It's so beautiful and fun to color!  I colored it with my pencils and mineral spirits and then fussy cut it so I could pop it on the white Floral Oval die cut with the green oval die cut behind it.  I love the way it makes the image "pop" and creates its own shadow.  I also added Champagne Microbeads to the flowers centers.  Here's a close up of the image.

Behind the image is one of the card fronts from the Majestic Morning Paper Collection that I matted with purple card stock.  The card base is white, embossed with the Rosa Embossing Folder, and a piece of the gorgeous designer paper die cut with Labels 23 Grand Die.

Be sure to visit the Heartfelt Creations Blog to see all the beautiful creations by the designers this week!

I'm submitting this to the following challenge:
