Black and White Birthday

Today's card was made for an extra extra extra special friend whose birthday was yesterday. I took it to her a couple of days early because I just couldn't wait to give it to her. As it turns out, she was feeling sick and yucky on her birthday and is still recovering, so prayers are going up for her to feel better soon.

I stitched around the white layer with a pattern that my sewing machine makes and rounded the corners with my corner rounder punch. The flower punches are from Stampin' Up, Flower Shop stamp set, Pansy Punch and two other SU punches that most likely are discontinued. The foliage is from a Martha Stewart Branch punch. The sentiment stamp I think I got in a bin at a bargain store, and it has no writing on the wood base to indicate who makes it.  Centers of the flowers are embellished with liquid pearls, and the foliage is heavily glittered, although my camera does not show this up very well.

Just so you know, the image shows up as having yellowish or pinkish shadows on my monitor, but none of these colors actually are on the card. The "black" part of the card is actually a dark charcoal grey, which does not show up very dark in the picture.

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
