Righteous



(Click on photo to enlarge for detail.)

As you may know, I spend a great deal of my waking hours on Splitcoaststampers! Well, over the past few weeks I have been lurking on one of the many wonderful threads I have recently come across. This one is called "His Holy Name". It is a challenge thread and it is awesome! You do a study and follow it up with your inspired creation in reflection of that study.

Yesterday I decided to take the plunge and give it a try. The word to study was "Righteous". I started by going to Biblegateway and finding verses with the word "righteous" in them. I love Psalms, so I zeroed in on that area of the Bible. I read many and got out my Bible and did some reading of them there. I eventually chose a verse that particularly spoke to me: Psalm 145:17 "The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works".
Then I spent the evening trying to come up with a page. Well, I guess I am not over my recent square card kick, lol, because the "page" ended up being a square card! Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it. I was so blessed by doing this little "study" and am looking forward to doing more of them.

Items used in my "Righteous" card:
PTI Everyday Blessings 6x6 paper pack; PTI Aqua Mist card stock; SU! Brushed Gold card stock. PTI Aqua Mist twill ribbon; SU! Pretties Kit (for white stemmed flower and pearls); Prima flower embellishments; brass "R" and bird embellishments.
