Journey Butterfly

I have a new creation for you.  It is a Butterfly card.  New creation reminds me of the verse in 2 Corinthians 5 ... It says "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (v.17 NIV)  I love that verse.  That is partly why I love butterflies.  They exemplify the verse notated.  As you know butterflies start as caterpillars ... the old becomes new.  WOW, God is so good!

I had fun making this card.  The background is from ELEGANT EDGES, page 25 using the Oblong+shift feature.  The butterfly can be found in CRICUT SAMPLER, page 28 and and WALK IN MY GARDEN, page 115 and .  I cut the background at 5" and the butterfly at 4-1/2".  I wanted a large butterfly.  Cardstock is from The Paper Company and Bazzill Basics (the pink is called Watermelon Sensation ... I love that name).  Glittered cardstock is from DCWV.  Patterned paper is from Pastel Garden by Colorbok.  Buttons are from the Citrus pak from Favorite Findings.  Journey is a sticker from Charming Thoughts by Bo Bynny Press.  Stitching is done with a White Jelly Roll pen.  Used my favorite adhesive ... my ATG and foame tape by Scotch, 2 Way Glue by EK Success and Ultra Thin Glue Dots.

I am sending this off to Girls Love Mail.  I saw an article in CardMaker magazine about sending encouraging mail to Gina Mulligan so she can forward it to breast cancer victims for encouragement during their journey.  This is a wonderful thing.  I know that my cousin and aunt would have loved encouraging mail during their journeys.  Go visit Gina Mulligan at http://www.ginamulligan.com/ .

I am also entering this into Mary's Cardz TV Challenge #8 - "Color Me A Rainbow!"   Create a card or craft project for any occasion using colors from the rainbow...pink, blue, green & yellow ONLY...you can also add small amounts of black & white.

Thanks for stopping by for a looksee.

Toodles and Happy Crafting,
Belinda
