Word Art Wednesday Challenge #199

          Wow! I can't believe it! Only 1 week left before we will have hit the 200 challenge mark over at Word Art Wednesday! Before we celebrate the big 200, we have to first share Challenge #199 with you all ;) We would love to have you join us, so after you are finished here at my blog, just click here and you'll be taken to the Word Art Wednesday blog.
          I have been having a rough week with my health so the card I made for today was real quick and simple. I took a plain white already made card base that was also pre-scored for me. I had this beautiful single sheet of pattern paper in which I cut a piece and then attached it to a piece of matching Recollections card-stock. I printed out my scripture onto a piece of Georgia Pacific white card-stock and then used Perfect Plum to ink the edges. To ink the edges I used a paper towel rather than a sponge which gave a bit of a streaked texture. I added a gorgeous satin ribbon bow towards the bottom and ta-DA my card was done. Super easy!
          Before I go, I am so excited to tell you all that STAMPtember has started over at Simon Says Stamp! Yippee!

    I often think that we over do things and we need to let just the wonderful products and the beautiful Word of God do the showcasing and think this is so with your card. Hope you soon are feeling better,
