Rose, Bow and Butterfly Birthday

I was challenged today with a blog (, a 5th Blogversary that had guidelines suggesting that we make a card with our favorite thing on it. Brenda, the blog owner, is giving scrumptious prizes to winners of her contest!

Well, if you are like me, it is a hard thing to pinpoint exactly one favorite thing, so I narrowed it down to a few.  :o)

I almost cannot resist putting butterflies and bows on a card. Butterflies mean new life to me--a new beginning; second chance; beauty and joy. And bows are just so much fun and seem to put a final element on a card that finishes it in a special way. And if you have butterflies, it's probably a good thing to put at least one flower on the card, right?

So those are my favorite things.

These are the tools used to make the card:

  • Spellbinders Fancy Lattice, Spiral Blossom One
  • Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish
  • Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch
  • Stampin' Up Bloomin' Marvelous Stamp Set, Four Frames Stamp Set, Coordinating Punch
  • Gingham Ribbon
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots EF

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
