Silver, Red and Scripture

Welcome

I  recently made a card to encourage a friend, and this was the result.
The word art was from Karen Wright at Papercraft Memories, cut with a die and sponged before removing the die.


I started with a white base, and then a layer of red embossed card, as I know that red is a favoured colour of the recipient.


The silver panel was a piece of acetate that was painted with silver paint on the back and then embossed. 


The flower is a stack of three fabric flowers held together with a brad.


The card was finished with a string of pearls.

Thanks so much for visiting - I so appreciate any comments left.
May your day be blessed
