My Soul Finds Rest in God Alone


Hello everyone!  Today I have a wonderful Scripture card to share with you from the newly released Our Daily Bread designs Scripture Collection 4 and the Vine Borders set.  I stamped with Memento Ink on GPW and used the Stamp- a- ma- jig to center the verse in the frame.  I lightly colored in a bit of the vine border with olive green.  I cut panel with SB Long Scalloped Rectangles, then matted with brushed silver and old olive.  My textured embossing is Sizzix, and I cut the lower edge with an EK Success Punch.  I duplicated that layer with an olive layer and then matted on silver, and on a base of white.  The Fleur de lis is Spellbinders with tiny pearls added.  I used a textured silver ribbon then covered that with a sheer ribbon and tied on a little charm that was a RAK from a dear friend.

This qualifies for the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Ribbons

 Hand Full of Stamps - Remove the dust (silver ribbon)

Practical Scrappers - Use Something you have had for over 1yr(ribbon)
I love this verse.  What a comfort... the world around us may be in a terrible state, but our assurance in our God, who never changes,  and we can rest in that. " My soul finds rest in God alone, my salvation comes from Him.  He alone is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my fortress, I will never be shaken."

I am away from my computer visiting with family, and this post is on auto pilot.  I will be back later with some new things to share with you.  Have a blessed day and thanks so much for stopping! I love knowing you were here!
