Going Green

If you remember from the last few blogposts, I mentioned that I went on a craft spending binge in February; (really can't do that again for a long, long time!). The Ornate Octagon die is one of those purchases, and the Trailing Ivy die is also very new. Still have some wonderful new things to try out in future posts.  :o)

I don't usually use a lot of green in making cards, but today's card was an exception; I had this lovely green SU leafy background paper that has lots of different shades of green, and since it is March, we are seeing a lot of green cards. You can't tell by looking at the picture, but the butterfly is generously doused with white/iridescent glitter.

These were also used:

Sue Wilson Trailing Ivy; Ornate Octagons
Spellbinders Wonderful Wings
Cuttlebug Mini EF backed by
EK Success 1 1/2" Scalloped Punch
Loose Glitter
Half Pearls

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
