My Faith Looks Up to Thee

Here is my card creation for the #3 challenge/study at Triple the Scraps.  If you haven't visited this blog, I really suggest that you pay Patter a visit...the inspiration, both creative and spiritual, that you will find there is amazing. And why not come join us for a year-long Hymn and Scripture challenge? Challenges/studies are posted every 2 weeks, and you can join in at any time...

This challenge used a hymn My Faith Looks Up ToThee. With a wonderful study of the hymn, after reading the in-depth post, I feel that I know the hymn (when I'm not sure that it has ever passed my lips! I am sure though that it would have been known to my dear Grandmother... hymns were like a second language to her!

I picked a delightful image from Beccy's Place to accompany this hymn.  The image felt 'right' to use with this hymn, I knew it had to be a peaceful one. I printed the image and coloured the leaves, and centres only.. leaving the flowers white. At this time, I took a few minutes to wrap the top of the hymn layer with lace, and with a strip of ribbon/bow.  I stitched a single pearl to the centre of the two open blooms, and attached them to the teal-matted hymn with foam tape. I fixed all to a cream cardbase.

I was going to tint the hymn layer with pearly cream chalk, then when I arrived home, I found that I had left my chalks behind at my parents' home! Eek!

As well as linking this into the hosted challenge/study at #2 Hymn Scripture Challenge - Triple the Scraps (thank you Patter!) I am also linking this up at Word Art Wednesday #68.....thanks for peepin'!

Polly, this is just beautiful! Love the hymn and the lace and ribbon at the top! Love the way you've coloured your flowers to! It looks wonderful, even without the chalk!

Hi Pauline . Love the script as focal point of card front . Beautiful lace and ribbon at top and pretty flowers at base coordinate to create a vintage like frame for the Hymn.

Beautiful page, Pauline! Isn't it a great challenge? It has been such a blessing to me as I have participated these last few years.
