Blue Hues

I got a new Martha Stewart punch (Flowering Vine) and wanted to try it right away. 

Starting out with white cardstock, I put on a blue and white striped paper which had also been inked with light blue ink all over. It is also edged in a darker blue to make it have some contrast against the white cardstock. There is blue faux stitching around the perimeter.

Next is the punch made from white cardstock; on top of that is a stamped sentiment which is die cut (Spellbinders Labels Two) and inked with dark blue ink around the edges. It is attached with pop dots for added dimension. Three rolled roses cut from a Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge are added to three of the corners; a butterfly (Spellbinder Papillions Two) is placed in the other corner with pop dots. The greenery is from a Cheery Lynn die (Mini Fanciful Flourish). At the bottom is a ribbon and double-looped bow to finish off 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
