Pink and Coral Birthday

Our neighbors who have lived across the street from us are moving in a few months to about a five hour drive from here. They want to be closer to their grandchildren, which is absolutely understandable. She had a birthday last week and I made her a card and took her to lunch. Good neighbors are something so valuable these days. We will be sorry to see them go.

Starting out with white CS, a coral scalloped piece was added, then a green polka dot piece, then a multicolored piece. I cut out a medallion (Spellbinders Medallion One) and spray painted it gold and added some liquid pearls to it and a very large green rhinestone in the middle. It is backed with the same green polka dot paper that is on the second layer. A green flourish was die cut (Spellbinders Jewel Flowers and Flourishes). The sentiment was printed out from my computer and framed with the same papers that were already on the card. I cut some white tulle and sponged it with some pink and orange inks to make it a coral color, then bunched it up a bit and put it beneath a double looped wire edged ribbon bow to finish the project.

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
