Spring pastels

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many woman do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive , and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Proverbs 31:26-31

I have used A Day for Daisies’ freebie to take today’s card.  the digi was coloured with Promarkers in Buttercup, Sunflower and Gold; Lime and Pear green; Dusky Pink and Putty for the skin.  The card was assembled using a sentiment printed out from my computer and craft stickers by .

Beautiful butterflies

Now the LORD God had formed out of the ground all the beasts of the field and all the birds of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name.

Genesis 2:19

Here is a card made with Hunkydory products.  I took a sheet of backing card and cut to 5″ x 5″, it was fixed to a card blank and the corners rounded with an x-cut punch.  I fussy cut some single butterflies from the remaining piece of card and shaped the slightly before adding to the card along with the two sentiments.
