A Rosy Birthday Card

Today's card is a departure from Christmas creations. I just needed to do something else, since for the last few months it has been only Christmas cards.

The blue and white paper is shelf liner from the dollar store; foliage is Lorelai Leaf and Lorelai Leaf Cutout dies using four layers of aluminum foil. The flowers are from Spellbinders:  Bitty Blossoms and Spiral Rose One, and the roses are glittered for extra interest; wish the sparkle showed up better! The border punch is from Martha Stewart. Sentiment is from Stampin' Up, which was hand cut out with scissors.  Blue and silver ribbon and a double looped bow finish the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

Romans 10:9-11If 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
