Flowers and Scripture

Welcome, 
I intended to blog last night, but DH wanted to watch some sport that we can only access online, so the computer was not accessible to me. 

I made this card for a friend who loves green - I think I managed to incorporate some green in this card!


My cuttlebug had a huge workout as I made this card, with both embossing and cutting.


This scripture is from Word Art Wednesday


As you can see the flowers are multi layered, and the paper they are cut from has a subtle sheen to it.

  3. Maxine,
    What a perfectly lovely card. The first thing I noticed was the sheen on the flowers and I wondered if you had used wax paper.
    Jessica in our music ministry sings a solo with that scripture as the first line. I can hear her singing it now. I really love the whole card.
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful artwork with us this week.
