Turquoise Blue and Silver Floral

I really like to work with aluminum foil, as many of you may know if you have followed some of my postings. Foil can do so many nice things, particularly when embossed, which is what today's card shows. I used four layers of heavy duty aluminum foil and ran it through a new Anna Griffin Rose Hearts EF that I got a few days ago. When it came out it looked like this:

Anna Griffin has such stunningly beautiful embossing folders that I wanted to let a good part of it show up; I made a die cut using Spellbinders Floral Ribbon Threader and cut out the center of it so the background EF would show. It is spray painted with Krylon Sapphire Glitter mist to make it sparkle. The rose is Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One and the foliage is also SB, Foliage. The sentiment is stamped with a little round Hero Arts Message Circle stamp and embossed with silver embossing powder. The leaves were a bit too in-your-face green, so I stamped them with some silver ink to tone the color down. A silver bow finishes the piece.

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
