The Lord is my Strength...

Hello! It's Wednesday again and time for another Word Art Wednesday challenge.  This week they are supplying this wonderful verse from scripture: Psalm 28:7. 

So many times I have felt helpless and discouraged.  Knowing that the Lord Jesus is always there to uphold me and to strengthen me is amazing! For all those times that I've come to Him crumpled and left with a bounce in my step, my heart truly rejoices and my heart sings of His blessings!  Praise the Lord for His mercies are new every morning!
For this card I've printed out the Word Art and inked the edges with Tim Holtz sage distress ink.  It is then layered over some cardstock from Stampin'Up and some layers of patterned paper from K & Company.  The lace is from my local taylor's shop and the rhinestones are from Forever in Time.  For the top corner I added a couple of eyelets and tied some lovely green ribbon from KaiserCraft through them.  Lastly I added some silk flowers (lily of the valley and yellow roses) to the top left corner.
Thank you for popping in today.  We'd love to see you at Word Art Wednesdays!

It's lovely Jennifer. :-) All those pretty embellies around the sentiment frame it perfectly. I just used this very same verse in a card I posted today. Guess God thought it might need to be seen a few times. :-) Hugs!

Such a beautiful card. Love all the colors and the leave-lace on it. Makes me happy on this drooly day here in Holland.
And God is amazing. He always is there for us. In good and bad times. He lifts us up and helps us through our trials in life.

Have a blessed day!
