Once the girls cards for the baby shower were done and dusted, I needed to make a card from DH and I.
I'm sure you can spy that I used the cupcake liners from the party banner once again! Yes, I pulled out the iron and pressed a couple more of those babies. I am getting my mileage out of that dollar purchase!
This time I layered two cupcake liners over a snippet of hot pink Bazzil dotted card. I added a hot pink scalloped die with a doily over top. The scalloped circle was to prevent the doily from getting lost in the damask pattern.
Now I had a little giggle here as I found the butterfly I searched for when I made the last card. I did not vacuum it up after all! It was just hiding, wanting to perch on my card instead! I added a pink shimmery chipboard princess sign and tucked three teensy flowers on the bottom left, to give some balance to the butterfly.
Sorry about the picture...I know it is not very straight! Just when I learned how to straighten on my old computer...I am now on windows eight with only the photo editing that came with it... and I have not figured it out yet! lol
The Mum-to-be went to a Catholic, private school with my daughters. I wanted my message to be prayer based but did not want to make any of the other girls feel preached at. I decided to make the sentiment a hidden message.
I tucked in a tiny envelope and placed the prayer inside. I then signed the back of the prayer!
Here is how it looked...
Two little eyes to look at God
Two little ears to hear His Word
Two little lips to sing His praise
Two little feet to walk His ways
Two little hands to do His will
It was from one of my Grandchildren's books and I have always loved those words. The book has a poem/prayer hidden in teensy envelopes on each page. I decided to steal the idea and go with the envelope system too!
I am entering this card in the following challenges
