The King is Coming

I warned you a third card was coming with this lovely image! The artist  is Atelier   he has added some new digi's to his shop so be sure and click the link and take a look! I think this one will always be one of my favorites! I decided to do this card in warms gold colors....although in the pictures it look yellow in RIL it is gold. The brown paper has gold foil anchors.  I used an old Martha Stewart punch for my lace edge, bits and pieces from the scrap box were my papers. I added a pretty little bow and a star fish charm and three rhinestones, A bit of Stickles and Liquid Pearls finished off my card. I am waiting to add a sentiment when I have a need for this card. My title of this post corresponds with the song I chose. I tried to create a look of tear about to spill over from the mermaids eyes as she awaits the King's return!
I am entering this card at the following  challenges:

My Song: The King is Coming
The marketplace is empty,
No more traffic in the streets,
All the builders' tools are silent,
No more time to harvest wheat;
Busy housewives cease their labors,
In the courtroom no debate,
Work on earth is all suspended
As the King comes thro' the gate.
O the King is coming,
The King is coming!
I just heard the trumpets sounding,
And now His face I see;
O the King is coming,
The King is coming!
Praise God, He's coming for me!
Happy faces line the hallways,
Those whose lives have been redeemed,
Broken homes that He has mended,
Those from prison He has freed;
Little children and the aged
Hand in hand stand all aglow,
Who were crippled, broken, ruined,
Clad in garments white as snow.
I can hear the chariots rumble,
I can see the marching throng,
The flurry of God's trumpets
Spells the end of sin and wrong:
Regal robes are now unfolding,
Heaven's grandstand's all in place,
Heaven's choir now assembled,
Start to sing "Amazing Grace!"

I would love to live close to you so I could watch you in action. I never learned to play well with markers so your skills just blow me away! This is such a sweet image and I love the embossed background as well!
