Word Art Wednesday Challenge #236 and #237

Good morning and welcome to a new bi-weekly challenge at Word Art Wednesday
 Today we have a beautiful scripture from the New Testament, specifically 2 Corinthians.  And this one is perfect for your patriotic cards!  I love this time of year.  Memorial Day, Flag Day and the Fourth of July are some of my favorites.  I love seeing the red, white and blue bunting and Old Glory waving in the breeze.  This scripture is just perfect for those sentiments...  I chose some lovely patriotic paper and went to work...


I used a white card stock base (4.25 x 5.5) for my foundation, cutting a red layer of 4.25 and 5.5 inches, a slightly smaller white matting and finally a top layer of blue CS.  I chose a couple of coordinating designer papers from the Americana collection by Pebbles and cut out a center piece using Our Daily Bread Designs' Double Stitched Rectangles Die.  I cut two in two separate patterns and then split the difference.  I printed my scripture panel on white card stock and used another die from Our Daily Bread Designs, (Double Stitched Circles) to cut it out.  I added a flag DP strip before adding the sentiment panel with dimensional foam.  For my floral spray, I chose a white mulberry rose, 2 red roses and a couple of pale blue blossoms.  I used a couple of Martha Stewart punches from my stash to create two colors of green leaves and kraft twigs.  I placed them all together in the corner to mimic a spray...

So fun, don't  you think?  

Thanks as always for stopping by and don't forget to visit Word Art Wednesday for your own copy of the digital scripture and the link to play along!

Blessings...
