A Card within a Card

I got a novel idea from a posting on Pinterest and tweaked it a bit to make it my own creation. It features a card within a card. I used a discontinued stamp from Stampin' Up for the flower, a Darice Swirls EF and Tattered Lace Butterfly dies. It was spritzed with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz. Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals die was used, as well as liquid pearls.

Smaller card is nested inside the larger blue card:

Wish my iPhone would show more of the sparkle, but this is the best I could do:

Smaller card opens up:

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
