Diane's Daydream Designs: Sweet Birdies + Wednesday Wisdom

Hi, friends!  I know that most of you know that I was asked to be on the design team for Diane's Daydream Designs, but for those of you that didn' you do! ;)  I feel SO blessed to get to be on this team with such an amazing array of women who are passionate about their work and about God.  I haven't worked with a lot of digis for a while, but these are ones that I will use for YEARS--they are amazing!

That said, I've got a sweet, or should I say TWEET, card to share with you today that uses an image from the Nest to Sky color digi set and some fabulous paper from the Nest to Sky digi paper set.

Here's my card~


For these fabulous challenges~

(Three flower sequins)

I fussy cut some of the clouds from a portion of the patterned paper that was "waste" to create a more 3D scene and then added some glitter to them to make them POP.  I also added some little flower sequins to the trees to make the card a bit more springtime fresh!  Liquid pearls gave the centers their yellow color and helps to adhere the sequins even more securely to the card stock.

These weekly DDD posts are going to become a way for me to share some of my favorite scriptures with my followers.  I'm going to call this portion "Wednesday Wisdom."  This sweet image reminds me of the following verse from Psalms 124:7,

"Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped." 

God has given us a way to escape from the snares of sin that beset us each day of our life.  It is through His Son, our Savior.  Through the Atonement of Christ, we can repent and feel as free as a bird in the sky, soaring above the sin of the world.  Isn't that a wonderful gift?!

Thanks for stopping by to look at my creation today!  I LOVE the way it turned out and I hope you do, too!  I also hope that you are able to feel God's love for you today and always--it never changes.  HUGS and happy stamping, friends!

I absolutely LOVE this, Mynnette. Is the sentiment DDD, or a different stamp? Super sweet. I hope you will link it up at WAW - I always enjoy having you play along.
