Butterflies Are Free

I made a card this morning that is nearly all white, except for a colored stamping, which is the centerpiece of the card. This was in the guidelines of the current Crafty Ribbons Challenge.

Starting out with white cardstock, another piece was laid over it that had been run through an embossing folder, then sprayed with glitter dust. Next, a die cut frame was covered with opal glitter glue--I really lavished it on. In fact it was so wet with glitter glue that after it dried I had to iron it because it was all wonky! The butterflies were stamped onto watercolor paper, then die cut and colored with pens. Then that was also sprayed with diamond glitter dust.  It is finished off with a glittery triple-looped white bow.

Here is 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
