Bloomin' Marvelous

Today I made a happy little pink, red and white card that can be used for a birthday card, or a just because card.

Starting out with white cardstock, a pinkish red plaid paper was laid on top. I got a new toy today and wanted to use it--it is a new large border punch module for the Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System called "Ironworks." This was punched from white cardstock and glued on top of the plaid paper. A red flower die cut from Spellbinders Flowers and Flourishes dies was attached with a very thick pop dot, and a large rhinestone was glued in the middle of it. Another product I had never used was a "Bloomin' Marvelous" stamp from Stampin' Up. It is stamped in pink, and the edges of the sentiment are also inked with pink ink. A pink and white ribbon and bow are placed at the bottom.

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
