Challenge Card

Just finished this card for some challenges.
The Our Daily Bread challenge was to use a verse as the focal point.
The Colour Create challenge was to use light lime green and aqua, with the optional extra of butterflies.
The Card Patterns Blog challenge was a sketch.
Here's my card:

The verse is from the ODBD Scripture Collection 1.  It's one of my favorite verses.  I layered my papers, used an EK Success punch for the aqua border piece.  Triple bow, Hero Arts flowers, and Recollections crystals.  I inked the verse with aqua ink, then used my black Marvy marker over the darker highlighted parts of the verse for emphasis. Butterflies are punched from cardstock and vellum and highlighted with glitter glue.

I really enjoyed this challenge.  Hope you'll take some time to check out the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and Colour Create blog (links above).  I was a winner of the last ODBD challenge, which was to use flowers.  It was a great honor for me.

I hope you have a wonderful, joyful Memorial Day weekend, and get to be with those you love.

Blessings and peace,
