The Lord Bless You

Probably one of my very favourite Bible verses - especially as a blessing for someone.  The entire verse reads: "The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face to shine upon you, the Lord lift up His countenance toward you and give you His peace" Numbers 4:24 - 26.  I find that especially uplifting and comforting, especially that the Lord would lift his face, his countenance toward me, or someone else.   Maybe you needed that word today :) 

I chose just a single stem from this gorgeous new Anemone set, using a Flourishes Silhouette cut file to cut it out first, stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring it up with Copics.  Some of the pretty anemones I looked up have these deep red flowers with a touch of purple in the inner petals.  So I tried to mimic that.  The papers are Flourishes Classic White, Classic Black and Teresa Collins Stationary Noted designer paper.  I used our lovely Perfectly Pierced Classic Window die to frame out the bloom tucking it under the black horizontal panel.  

Some pretty accents include some slate gray braided trim, delicate lace, silver cording, black rhinestones and a Kaiser Rouge Sparklet.  

I love how all the rounded corners weave into each other.  Blessing on you friends!
