A Tree Planted by Streams of Water


"[Those who trust in the Lord] shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:8
The challenge at Stampin Sisters In Christ this week is based on the verse above; it is to have an image of something planted or to simply use the color green. I sent this card in as part of an application for a Design Team recently and I had chosen a very similar theme as my sample challenge. The Bible verses I had chosen were Psalm 1:1-4 which is also about the tree planted by the life-giving water. So this definitely fits this challenge!
Ingredients used:
Cardstock - K&Company "Julianne"
Spellbinder dies - Labels 15
Oak tree & leaves stamps - Stampin Up
Bible verse stamp - Verve
Brass embellishments - Michaels
