I have used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, challenge #32. Here is their wonderful sketch.
I would also like to link up this card to Word Art Wednesday, a challenge site dedicated to encouraging, uplifting messages on cards. They give you a beautiful piece of word art to work each week with but you can also enter any card with scriptures or encouraging and uplifting words.
My card was made with the cover plate quatrefoil die by Papertrey Ink. I trimmed the cut piece since I didn't need it to cover the entire card. This wonderful scripture stamp came from Layers of Color, a stamp set called Encouragement. The butterflies are made with a Marvy punch and small yellow pearls.
For those of you who know that I sell my cards at a market on Mondays to raise funds for dental care for a boys home in a nearby village, it was a pretty slow day yesterday BUT I received an email this morning from a friend who wants me to make 9 cards for her so that really encouraged me! There are two new boys at the home and these two plus two more will be taken to the dentist on Friday.
Have a wonderful day everyone,
