God's promises

I have made this arch for 2 challenges - a new site called Saturday Stampers on poetry , and Salt Faith on God's promises.

I find the poetry of the Psalms absolutely beautiful, and relevant to every mood and emotion. These verses are from Psalm 119: 147-8

I rise before the dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises. ---

Inks : VersaMagic Magnolia Bud; VersaColor Bisque and Narcissus; Fluid Chalk Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna and Maroon; ColorBox Chianti

Extras : Image from art-e-cats and picture of candle; cream paper; brads; prima flower; polka dot ribbon

I love this - there's something very tranquil about the palette you've used, and I love that Rosetti image. (I think it's a Rosetti, anyway. *wracks brains*)
