His Holy Name '09 King

Hosanna! Hosanna! Hosanna in the highest! Don't you just love Palm Sunday?! What a joyous day. We had a wonderful service at church today with kids and palm branches and beautiful praise to Christ our King! Today is the perfect day to be reminded of God as our King, which is the attribute we studied this week for the His Holy Name Challenge HHN09 hosted by Patter Cross. Patter does a wonderful job of inspiring us and then sending us out to discover the scripture for ourselves. The verses I chose for this 12x12 page are from Psalm 145 verses 1-3 and 11-13. "I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom." and "They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he had made." Is that awesome! I just loved these verses and had to use both. I tried to make this page look regal and royal. I'm not sure I accomplished that. It's a little too formal for me, but it's all good.
I used Old Olive, Chcolate Chip, River Rock, Perfect Plum cardstock and Brocade Background DSP (retired). The stamp I used is Kind Thoughts. The title (which is the part I like the least!) was cut with my Cricut using the Stone Script. The crown was cut using the paper dolls cartridge. The silk flowers are from Bazzill. The gold rope came from a yard sale.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed Easter Week!

Love your page, Krystal. It's a beautiful passage! We didn't really have a traditional Palm Sunday service ... with Paul gone (the pastor and my hubby!), things are a bit different at church!

I think you did a great job at making it looking regal. Great colours, great embellishments!
