A Very Golden Thank You

Today I was attempting to clean up and organize my craft room.

Oh, my! I have hundreds of die cut and punched images that have just hibernated in there. I would cut something out and then decide not to use it and put it aside knowing that some day it would come in handy. Well, I should use them! And that is just what this card is made from -- previously prepared elements that were begging to be assembled into something that would look good. The only thing that is new is the bow, which I made using my fingers. (You can see a tutorial on how to do this at

I wish I could remember the name of the EF used to make the background, but it was so long ago. I looked through my stash and could not find it. (It is in there somewhere, though!) The flower is Memory Box Lovely Peony and Lovely Peony Outline; the foliage is Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish; the sentiment is printed from my computer and punched out with a 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch. There are two kinds of ribbon used on the card, both from my stash. Copious amounts of white and gold glitter were used, and the background was inked with gold ink.

So there you have it. I have enough pre-cut elements in my stash so that it may be a long time before I make anything new. Just kidding! But they do need to be used up.  (smile)

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 

Acts 13:38-39
"Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God—something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT
