You Are Simply Wonderful

Today's card was made using a crafting item I have not used in a long time: microbeads!  They are from Martha Stewart. I saw them on a post, but had a hard time finding them in the stores; I did find them at Michael's. That was quite awhile ago, so they may be easier to find now.

The roses were cut from a Cricut Floral Shoppe cartridge and the butterfly is a die cut (Wonderful Wings) from Spellbinders, and is sprayed gold and glittered. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. The card is finished with a hand-tied double-looped green/silver bow.

Here it is:

Romans 10:9-10
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
