Do not be Anxious!


This weeks challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs blog is to use Aqua or Topaz (blue) on your creation.  So this is what I came up with.  I had been wanting to use these cute little flowers that I punch out using the cirlce punches and then spiral cut them and rolled them to form the flower.  They are really so easy to do and I had the blue ones made, but decided to add the yellow at the last minute.  I am also going to use this for the scripture Thursday Linky party over at Little Birdie Blessings!

I also decided to use this verse as it is one of my favorite and a verse I stand on each and every day.  I use to be very anxious, but after repeating this verse each time I woke up at night with that worried feeling and then praying that God would take that anxiety away, I can now say that I sleep through the night with no anxiety.  And, if I do wake up it is usually just my age talking to me with those awful flashes! lol  But I am thankful that I serve a God who can give you peace.  I praise Him daily for the peace I have through Him. 

Here is a side view of the card!


And a close up of the verse and flowers!


This is not my norm on a card, but there are times I just have the urge to move from the clean and simple.  I think I did ok without over doing it.

Jonia, your card is stunning. What a beautiful way to frame this important piece of scripture. I certainly hear you on the anxiety end of things. By the Grace of God and lots of prayer, I'm much better than I used to be. Thanks so much for linking this beautiful card to Scripture Thursday. ~ Abby

It's such a blessing to find a Word that brings us peace and rest during times of trouble. The Book of Philippians is so good to instruct us about how to overcome anxiety. Thanks for sharing and your card is beautifully done.
