This is for the Teapot Tuesday Challenge. This week we are sending our cards to Brenda who was in a head on accident. Brenda lived through the Grace of God and has a long recuperation in front of her.
We were to bring flowers and butterflies to the party and a scripture for desert.
I used Whisper White and Lovely Lilac papers and ink. My first layer I ran through a CB ef. Don't know the name. Next I sponged an ef with ink and ran my paper through then cut with SU Apothecary Accents. I popped that up on dimensionals . Next I cut my butterflies out with a CL die. I make some bling spray using Alcohol and Tsukineko Frost White Ink. I sprayed both of them It doesn't show up on the photo very well but its pretty IRL. Next I cut out my leaves with a CL die, Olive Leaves. My flower was gifted to me from Kathy Bradley. I added pearls. I am addicted to pearls! Could be worse!! Next inside I cut a piece of white paper and stamped using a set from ODBD Anchor. Inside the scripture says:
The hope we have is an anchor for the soul, sure and steadfast. Hebrews 6:19. Then I stamped three butterflies from and old SU set, Good Friend.
I feel like I wrote a short novel.
Thanks for looking and hope you like my card.

Oh, Syl, what a breathtaking beauty this is - I am imagining the frosted spray you spritzed on and how wonderful it must look. This will SO encourage Brenda through her recuperation and rehab with that Scripture of HOPE! You are always so thoughtful when you make a card and try to make it so extra special!! What a heart you have! HUGS!
