Birdie Thank You

Today I went through some of my Cricut cartridges and decided to use some that had been neglected. The sweet little bird on swirly branches is from the Sophie cartridge. The design was cut twice and the little bird was extracted from the second cut and spray painted with silver paint and then sprayed with Krylon Diamond Dust glitter spray. A tiny iridescent bead was glued on the bird's head for an eye. I used three patterned papers on this card:  a dark blue patterned paper, an off white paper with blue branches and a faux blue linen looking paper. Sentiment is from JustRite Grand Sentiments and was applied with VersaMark ink and blue embossing powder. A blue grosgrain double-looped bow was added on the upper right, and liquid pearls were applied to the corners to add more interest.

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
