Word Art Wednesday #183

      Hello everyone! Today I am so blessed to announce that I am now part of the Word Art Wednesday Design Team! It was such an honor to have been asked and now an even greater honor to actually be part of such an amazing team! Making this even more special to me is that my very first Design Team post is occurring on what would have been my Dad's birthday (he passed away 13 years ago). I think he had a hand in making this happen for me ;) So starting now, every week on Wednesday, I will be showcasing my Word Art Wednesday Design Team creations. Super exciting right! It is for me anyway, lol! To learn more about Word Art Wednesday or if you would like to participate in the weekly challenges, you can get to their blog by clicking on the following link: Word Art Wednesday.

There is so much talent and inspiration, you won't want to miss it! I am so thankful that you all for stopped by my blog today! I wish each and every one of you an amazing and abundantly blessed week! Now cue in the drum roll please..... Here it is, my first Word Art Wednesday DT creation! Woo Hoo!

Front: The front of the card is featuring scripture Psalm 149:4 I absolutely love the font used for this scripture. Since the scripture font was so elegant, I wanted a card to match so I chose soft colors and flowers to capture the elegance. For the base card-stock I used is the Blue Breeze Prestige Card-stock from My Favorite Things. I also used plain white card-stock that I purchased from Walmart. I cut out the shape of my card with the My Favorite Things Square Scalloped Dies (I believe these dies have been retired). I stamped the base of the card with Versa Mark using the My Creative Time Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background Stamp Set. The inks I am using are the My Favorite Things Blue Breeze Hybrid Ink, Stampin' Up Marina Mist Ink Pad, and Stampin' Up Midnight Muse Ink Pad (which Midnight Muse has now been retired). The flower stamp set I used is from Stampin' Up as well but this was a promotional stamp and is not currently available but fingers crossed they will bring this set back for purchase because it is a beautiful set. This stamp set is a 3 layering stamp set, meaning you have 3 different stamps to use to achieve the final look but they are so easy to use, especially using the MISTI which I was so excited to use for the first time when making this card. I will be doing a review on the MISTI soon, so stay tuned. Oh, the ribbon was purchased from Michael's Crafts unfortunately it doesn't list a brand or color on the packaging.

Inside: The inside of the card was made using the same My Favorite Things Square Scalloped Dies and the sentiment came from the same Stampin' Up stamp set as the flowers. I used the My Favorite Things Blue Breeze Hybrid Ink to sponge the edges of the white card-stock. The clear holder that is displaying my card was purchased at Micheal's Crafts.
