Zechariah 9:17 15 and the LORD Almighty will shield them. They will destroy
and overcome with slingstones. They will drink and roar as with wine; they will be full like a bowl used for sprinkling the corners of the altar. 16 The LORD their God will save his people on that day as a shepherd saves his flock. They will sparkle in his land like jewels in a crown. 17 How attractive and beautiful they will be!
The Lord is good to shield us. He will save his people, just look into the Word, it is a constant theme inside! "Sprinkling" brings on a variety of thoughts. The first is watching my Mom when I was small. She used to take in laundry/ironing to bring a little extra income. She would stand and sprinkle the cloths to dampen them before ironing. The extra work caused the shirts to press up so perfect, and the aroma was so fresh!
God is like that, sprinkling to freshen! So grateful for saving grace. It is exciting to be like jewels in a crown! Think of it, sparkling as the sun/son reflects in our lives.
This week, I encourage you to sprinkle a little embossing powder over your background paper, set it from the back. Or perhaps some spray glitter, or glitter glue. It comes in all fancy packaging, or in the school supply isle. No supplies for sparkle, look about your house. Do you have some glitter? I am certain your imagination will take you to a product to add some sparkle to your creation this week!
So here is my project and yes, I did add sparkle and some rhinestones per Robyn's direction.
Here is a side view of the card! You really can't see the glitter as well as I would have liked but all in all, I do like the outcome.
Here is a close up of the top roses I made and here you can see the glitter and the sparkle from the rhinestones.
And, here is a front view of the whole card! By the way is this not a cute image! I just love this image!
