WAW128 ~ 2 Corinthians 1:5 ~ The Sufferings of Christ

Welcome!  It's time for another 
fabulous and inspirational challenge at Word Art Wednesday.  

Check out the Word Art Wednesday site for all of the details including this week's digital scripture, how to link your creation AND info on some fabulous prizes! 
 
A special thank you to Mark's Finest Papers and Yours Mine Paper Crafts for graciously providing our prizes this week.  

This week, Christians celebrate Good Friday and Easter.  I often think that we focus so much on the joy of the Resurrection that we forget the pain that Jesus endured before and during his Crucifixion.  He overcame death and through his sacrifice we can too.  However, he paid a terrible price.  The striking part...  he WILLINGLY laid down his life for you and I.  He knew our failings, shortcomings and sin.  AND HE DID IT ANYWAY!  That is a testament to true love!  Hallelujah! 

I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Easter!


I started with a white card stock base (4.25 by 5.5) and then added a DP layer from Recollections.  I cut a smaller rectangle out of coordinating MME paper and placed it on top with dimensional foam.  I printed today's scripture on white card stock and trimmed it down into a banner, placing it slightly askew.  I wrapped some light pink seam binding (adding a bow) around the layer before adhering it.  A wooden button with baker's twine woven through is nestled on top.  I added a few bits of die cut greenery and cut down a pearl flourish to add as well.  The final touches...  a few different shades of light pink mulberry roses!  Hope you like it!

Until next time...

Blessings...

Supplies

Papers - Georgia Pacific, Recollections, Bazzill, MME Lost and Found
