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!

Blazing Poppy Layered Circle Card

Happy Wednesday!

Today Heartfelt Creations has a special produce launch - Layered Cards, Shadowboxes & Dies! These are perfect for that special wow gift! For my project this week I used one of the circle layered cards in black.

There are 4 separate pages to this card which is more like an album. I decorated the front, but you can also decorate each page with plenty of room for embellishments in-between the pages. There's about a half inch between each for layered embellishments. Here is a side view so you can see the layers better.

The designer papers and the flowers are from the Blazing Poppy Collection. The leaves are from the Peacock Paisley Collection. I used the designer papers for the base of both. Here's a little close up of the floral arrangement.

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:
