Spring Cheer

A few days ago I inked an embossing folder with pale blue ink; the end result is subtle. I set it aside to use at a later time, which, in this case, happened to be today.

You can see that there are a lot of elements in this layout--lace, buttons, flowers, twine, butterfly, etc. 

Here it is:

These were used to make the card:

Martha Stewart: Branch Punch
Stampin' Up:  Flower Punch
Silhouette: Butterfly Cut
Sizzix: Tiny Flowers Embossing Plate
Colored Rhinestones
Paper Studio: Swirls Embossing Folder
Light Blue Ink
Pink Ribbon

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
