Deuteronomy 3:24

Today I am posting a blue sparkly glittery card to usher in warmer weather and the upcoming spring season. 

I have this luscious blue shimmery glittery blingy paper that was bought from Michael's last year, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to show off its brilliance. The different facets catch and reflect lots of different shades of blue and turquoise. A piece of it is laid on white cardstock. Also, there is this turquoise felt-like flower border that has just been lying around in my craft room waiting for a chance to be used. To make it stand out from the turquoise background, it is placed on top of a strip of white vellum; likewise, the sentiment (which is printed from my computer) is framed in white vellum. Both the vellum frame and the sentiment cardstock were punched with a corner rounder punch. A Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die is used to cut a white vellum leafy vine; the three-layered butterfly (Spellbinders Wonderful Wings) is cut from gold vellum for a final touch.

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

  11. This is gorgeous. Love the sparkles and the 3D butterfly and of course the gorgeous inspiration of the scriptures. So delighted you shared your artwork with us at Word Art Wednesday. Want to leave you with a verse coming from 1 John 5:4 which says, "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." Have a blessed week!
