Altered Dies #13

Hi Everyone and welcome to my blog! I was so happy when I learned I had been chosen as a guest designer for Word Art Wednesday for the month of July. What a wonderful privilege!

I have always loved this beautiful verse about peace that is being showcased here this week. There are quite a few verses in God's Word that tell about peace. When Jesus was born the angels said "peace on earth goodwill toward men." Later it is written that God gives peace that passes all understanding, even when we live in a stormy world! AND that is a peace He gives deep in our souls and only He can give it!

I decided to use a beautiful peacock stamp from Inkadinkado. I must have peacocks on the brain because I saw some beautiful ones when I went to Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, SC while visiting my son a few weeks ago. This one was really showing off for us and I was happy to get his picture!

I have been making the altered die cards on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month. This is a day early but I altered some leaf dies from Sue Wilson and used them as feathers on the peacock! His body was glittered using Sparkle N Sprinkle Olaf White glitter. The frame for the card is a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 die layered on a Labels 8 die cut from blue card stock. The Lace Corner is a Cheery Lynn die.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a blessed day!
