My First Card Challenge!

I recently discovered Word Art Wednesday. They have a challenge each week using a Bible verse. You can also enter the challenge even if you happen to not use the Bible verse as long as you submit something with an uplifting/encouraging quote.

The Bible verse for this week's challenge is Deuteronomy 32:2 - "Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants."

These words were part of the 'Song of Moses' in which he proclaims the greatness of God and describes the attributes of God. I encourage you to read the entire chapter. Moses spoke these words to the children of Israel; however, these same words should be heeded today by all peoples....and I'm specifically thinking about the American people.  Man cannot turn his back on Almighty God without dire consequences.

Here is a photo of the card I'm entering in the challenge.

The Bible verse speaks of rain, dew, and showers upon the grass and herbs/plants. I decided to go with an image of a tree instead of grass, flowers or herbs. It is only by being "watered" by God (through reading His Word, prayer, and fellowship with other Christians) that we can become rooted and grounded as the mighty tree.

The tree image is from the Stampin' Up 'Lovely as a Tree' set and the butterfly is also SU - from the retired Dreams du Jour set. I used foam adhesive to give dimension to the tree and Bible verse. I also dabbed some distressing ink around the tree and used a paper distresser for the Bible verse.

I'm looking forward to entering more of the Word Art challenges!


  1. Hi Donna! I was SO BLESSED to see that you are linked up and playing along with us at Word Art Wednesday. I was incredibly blessed by the words you shared as well as this beautiful card. I just prayed for you, Donna, that God will bless you as you join us, and for sharing your heart with us. I hope you will continue to participate each week and share what God lays on your heart. Your art is beautiful, and I look forward to seeing more of it!
