Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing...

Hello, everyone. Hope your day has been blessed.

The card I made today features purple, white, leaves, a textured layer, and a negative die cut. Basic white cardstock was the foundation of the card; next, a dark purple layer of cardstock was laid over that. The sentiment is from a favorite hymn and is computer generated and printed onto a lighter purple cardstock. It is laid underneath the white embossed layer that has a frame cut out to create the negative space. The white embossed layer was run through a leaf EF, so that aspect is very subtle.

A purple scroll work border is placed on the bottom. Two different kinds of flowers are stacked on top of each other, both from different Spellbinders die cut sets. The bottom one is cut from vellum and is sprayed with diamond glitter dust. The one on top is cut from white cardstock and is sprayed with purple glitter dust. A purple rhinestone is positioned in the middle of the stacked flower and more light purple punched leaves are added around the flower. A punched butterfly floats on the top of the card.

Romans 10:9-11
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
