His Thoughts Towards Us - Word Art Wednesday

Hello Delightful friends!
Hope your week is going well, sorry I'm a little late in getting this card posted.  I meant to have it all ready to go and I must confess, I was just too tired last night to turn on my computer!
Between working all day, then our grandson's basketball game, then church prayer meeting I was ready for bed.  I've never been so happy that we had leftovers and I didn't have to cook!  I'm sure you are just as busy so I thank you for stopping by and checking out my card for Word Art Wednesday.  Our sponsor this week is The Stamps For Life!  They have an awesome online store with not only stamps but dies and all sorts of stamping supplies!  Be sure and check it out.  One lucky person will win a $25 voucher to the store so please play along at Word Art Wednesdays Anything Goes, Family Friendly challenge blog. Don't forget you can share 5 new projects each week for a chance to win!

Here is my card for the challenge:

I've used all scraps (except the card base) for this card.  I had a couple of larger pieces that I've used as the background and to mat the pretty floral pattern paper.  I've used a scrap of matching teal card stock and cut it to 4" x 1/4" I've also cut the larger floral piece to make two pieces so that the green card stock behind it shows which gives the illusion of 4 separate pieces but in reality the teal card stock breaks up the smaller floral piece so that it looks like two pieces.  Hope that makes sense, I suppose if you saw the card in person it would!  The ribbon is white seam binding and is also a leftover piece that I had used Distress Inks to dye it, it matched perfectly.
The Scripture Art was printed on white Neenah card stock and I die cut it using the Avery Elle Reversed Pink die. I cut it out twice in white one with Scripture and one without so that I could use the "frame" cut out twice to give it a bit of dimension by layering them together. Easy peasy!  I always try to keep the Scripture Art the main focus of my card.

The Scripture is from Psalm 40:5
Many, O LORD my God, are Your wonderful works which You have done;
And Your thoughts toward us cannot be recounted to You in order; 
If I would declare and speak of them,
They are more than can be numbered.

Such a true verse written by King David, God is so good to us in so many ways that it's impossible to keep them in order.  Even if we can't keep them in order, we should always be ready to give an account for the hope that we have in our Lord Jesus Christ.  We may be the only reflection of Jesus that a person may encounter and we need to make sure we shine brightly for Him.  His thoughts towards us are for good the Word says please remember that, especially when going through the difficult times of life (which there will be, no one is immune.) But learn to be thankful and allow the Holy Spirit to work in us and through us and most importantly rejoice in the Lord who will deliver us! God is faithful.

Have a blessed day!
