Seeking Him Early - Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Hello Delightful friends and family!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday!  We've had a couple of really busy weeks here at home and at church and I hate to say it but it doesn't look to slow down much either especially with the holidays just around the corner.  Don't they just have a tendency to sneak up on us!
Well, it's time to reveal my card for this weeks Word Art Wednesday Family Friendly Challenge.  Don't forget to play along (there are prizes to be won!) and you can submit up to 5 new projects!  This weeks word art is from Proverbs 8:17 and if you would like to use the free Scripture word art just save it to your computer! Sponsors this week are the Flying Unicorn and Cutting Cafe!  Be sure and visit Word Art Wednesday there is an exciting announcement about Instagram!!

Here is this weeks Scripture Art:

Here is my card:

Here is the list of ingredients:
Stamps: JustRite Clear Floral Silhouettes One
Background: Peerless Watercolors
Strathmore 140lb cold press watercolor paper
Bazzill Cinder card stock
Neenah Bright White card stock, 80lb.
Archival Jet Black Ink
Paper Accents Vellum
Step 1: lay clean water down on paper, add water color lightest to darkest colors. Wet on wet technique.  Dry completely before stamping.  Cut to 3.5" x 4.25"
Step 2: stamp flowers, leaves and stems positioning them with the MISTI.  Stamp all in Archival Black ink.  Trim panel to 3.5" x 4.25"
Step 3:  Print Scripture Art (resize if needed) and print on Vellum.  Trim to desired size.
Step 4: Optional - splatter ink or water color onto stamped panel before adhering the Vellum.  I meant to do that before putting my card together ( bummer!)
Step 5:  Pop up the water color panel with dimensionals. Adhere layers together.

Are any of you doing the Entrusted Bible Study by Beth Moore?  Each session is so good.  We will be on Session 5 this morning.  Last week I was inspired by something I read in the homework that really touched my heart and it was the topic of our ladies Monday night Bible study and Potluck.  It was based on Philippians 3:12-14 and a quote from Beth "Your faithfulness is the key to somebody else's faith."  That is so true!  How many people are watching us and seeing our faithfulness to the Lord.  It should really challenge us to "seek the Lord early" so that we can make the Lord our focus for our day and be accountable to Him. I want to always be found faithful to the Lord Jesus and I know I fall so short.  But I'm striving forward and with the Lord's help I will "press on to the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus". 

Be encouraged today and remember to love the Lord with all your heart!!
Have a great week and thanks for visiting!
