Oh Happy Day

I got a new Cricut cartridge the other day and wanted to experiment with it a bit. It is "Lacy Labels." There was one that seemed to meet the needs of the card in my head, so I cut it out along with pieces to back it up, and of course, the greenery part that swirls around the cut out shape. I put it together and also made little flowers with a Paper Studio Daisy Lever Punch; they each have a dot of gold glitter glue in the middle of the double layer flowers. A strip of blue patterned paper from my stash was run across the bottom of the card and some turquoise/aqua rick rack was added on top of the blue paper. The background paper is the same as the gold base on which the sentiment is stamped, but for contrast it is colored with brown and gold dabs of ink, then run through a Darice Crackle EF. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, Bloomin' Marvelous Collection. The butterfly is die cut (Spellbinders Papillon Two) from the same blue paper as was used to back the gold piece, the punched flowers and the blue strip on the bottom of the card, only it is stamped with darker blue ink to make it stand out more; then it is glued and glittered to add sparkle.

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
