Every Day I Will Bless Thee GBCB-007

Do you ever start out with an idea and work at it for an hour or two trying different things that don't work, then end up with a completely different color scheme and layout for your finished project? I think that is why each card takes me so long. Each one kind of evolves and takes on a life of its own, sometimes not even remotely resembling what was envisioned in the beginning.

Such was today's card. What I finally ended up with was a white cardstock base. On top of that is a layer of cardstock that is sprayed with Krylon textured stone paint. This is neat stuff. It really does look like textured stone when you are done with it.

Next is a partial black circle with a partial white doily on top that has been punched out and embossed. The leaves are silver and have opal translucent glitter glue on them to make them sparkle. The yellow rose is rolled and also embellished with opal glitter glue.

The sentiment is printed from my computer and is mounted on yellow and black paper. A triple-looped silver bow completes the card.

And here it is:

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
