Simply Stamped - Word Art Wednesday #198

Hello Delightful friends and family!

Hope your Wednesday is going well! I have our Ladies Bible Study this morning so I need to make this a quick post so that I can get some things done around the house before heading to the church.

Here is my card for Word Art Wednesday #198 (we are getting closer to that #200 challenge!!!)  As always it is an Anything Goes - Family Friendly challenge and we would love for you to play along with us.  We have great sponsors with fabulous prizes so be sure and check out the site and then consider joining us!

I've had this stamp set for awhile (Simply Stamped by Taylored Expressions) and it has been sitting on my craft table just begging to be inked up and I finally got inspired!  I knew I wanted to use Desert storm card stock for a layer and I think these ink colors work great with it.  The stamps are a layering set and so I started with Worn Lipstick for the base, then Picked Raspberry for the next layer and then the darkest color I used  Festive Berries (All Distress inks) The leaves were stamped with Archival Green Fern.  I've used Antique Linen and sponged around the edges, as well as the card stock for the Scripture verse.  The cute Loops are from a Taylored Expression Die set called Skinny Mini Borders.

I love Psalm 119, it has so many spiritual gems to dig up and digest.  Verse 90 our featured Scripture this week is definitely one of those gems. Just think about how God's Word had established the earth in the very beginning (Genesis 1) and now it's His faithfulness that causes it to continue to abide.  You can read throughout the Bible how God sustains this earth and how our very hairs and days are numbered!! It's a definite reminder of God's faithfulness to all generations!

Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:89
