Ribbons and Bows

RIBBONS and BOWS (either or both!)
and a scripture, or uplifting verse or positive words of healing, encouragement, or support

"...the King gave a banquet for all of the people. from the greatest to the least, who were in the fortress of Susa. It lasted for seven days and was held in the courtyard of the palace garden.  The courtyard was beautifully decorated with white cotton curtains and blue hangings, which were fastened with white linen cords and purple ribbons to silver rings embedded in marble pillars. Gold and silver couches stood on a mosaic pavement of porphyry, marble, 
mother-of-pearl, and other costly stones."
                                               ~ Esther 1:5-6 NLT ~

We are excited to welcome our sponsor for this week, Eureka StampsEureka

Finally, The Stamps You've been Looking for! Eureka stamps offers a large variety of  images and sentiments in many different categories for all of your stamping needs. 
Our randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of five (5) digital images from  Eureka Stamps ... and we thank our sponsor for their generous prize!  

My card this week uses this beautiful angel image from Eureka. She is holding a dove which I always associate with the concept of peace. With that in mind, my verse is the first several words from Philippians 4:6, "Be anxious in nothing." This verse goes on to tell us to let God know, with thanksgiving, of our needs and then reminds us that God gives us peace that passes all understanding.

I have colored this gorgeous image using my Copic markers. I first printed it off onto Cryogen card. After  coloring, I used QuicKutz nesting circles DC0253 to cut it out. My card base is made from DCWV card, and my patterned papers are from a pad by Hot Off the Press called Heritage.My pink ribbon is from Offray. I added the lace and flowers (WOC). The vine die cut behind the flowers and image is cut with a Cheery Lynn die (B117), and the extra leaves behind the flowers are from a Martha Stewart hand punch. The three little lavender pearls in the upper corner are from the dollar bin at Michael's Crafts.

Please take a few minutes to run over to the Twist of Faith blog to see more beautiful images from Eureka Stamps and the lovely cards made with them by my fellow team members.
