Revelation 17:14 Word Art Freebie

Recently my mom commissioned me to make some cards for her to give to the women who have been in her Bible Study Fellowship discussion group this year. She didn't give me a verse but just told me to choose something myself. There have been so many wonderful verses in our study of Revelation this year, but I chose Revelation 17:14 and made my first attempt at creating word art. It was much more time-consuming than I thought it would be! Still, it was fun to play with fonts and sizes and decide where to put each word. I wanted the verse to fit on a banner, so I made it tall and narrow. The fonts I used for the word art are Calibri and Calligrafitti.
I used white A2 card bases and cut a strip of chalkboard paper with lambs on it from The Paper Studio. Then I die cut using a Spellbinders crown die and silver cardstock. Next I die cut the verse using a Gina Marie Designs banner die. They are rather simple but elegant, I think. I made enough of them to give to the children in my level 3 BSF class, our BSF class staff and the BSF children's leaders my 3 youngest children had this year. This verse just seems to sum up the whole book of Revelation so well. 
I'm a little late in posting this because I wanted to give away the word art I made and didn't know how to convert the silhouette file to a .png file. I googled how to do that this week and downloaded the free version of bullzip so I could convert the file and post it here. It's yours for the taking if you are interested! I'm hoping to fit in more time to do Scripture word art, so I'll be sure to share any new work here.
