Creative Fingers Challenge – Fairytale

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

2Timothy 1:7

Today’s card is made for Creative Fingers Fairytale challenge.  I took my inspiration for this card from a Disney storybook that I had as a child.  At the end of Sleeping Beauty, the fairy godmothers were arguing over the colour of Briar Rose’s wedding dress.  One wanted it pink and another blue.  They each used magic when the other wasn’t looking to change it.  So here she is, with her dress magically changing – do you see the sparkles of magic dust?  Yes, I have regressed to 6 years old…sigh…

The lettering is from a Forever friends range at DoCrafts and the papers were free with a magazine.

Dancing – Creative Moments Challenge

If anyone says, “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.

1 John 4:20-21

I just love a card with a scalloped edge and today’s card os my DT make for Creative Moments challenge.

The theme for this challenge is add pearls or buttons and the sponsor this fortnight is Just Some Lines.  The backing papers are from Hot Off The Press.
