We Love Him

Hello there, my friends! Can you believe how fast the weeks are flying by? What can I say? Time flies when you're having fun. Speaking of fun, it's time for Tuesday Throwdown challenge #135: Monochromatic.   This week the DT is playing with some gorgeous images so generously provided by Sweet n Sassy.

I used this beautiful butterfly and flowers image to make a card for my friend's daughter who has started her preparation for Confirmation. Of course, the actual event is scheduled for just after Easter but there's no harm in reminding her why she's doing it. I've chosen shades of turquoise for my card... so vibrant and uplifting, no?



The patterned papers are bits and pieces from Echo Park Dots & Stripes 6x6 and Crate Paper Toy Box 6x6.


Here's a close-up of the image. I used SN markers to colour: BT1, BT2, BT3, BT5, BT6. And to tie the bouquet I used some baker's twine by Doodlebug .


The sentiment is a word art from a previous WordArt Wednesday challenge. I think that scripture verse will answer her question "why?". 

On the inside, a simple message from WMS.

That's my card for today. For more ideas and inspiration visit the rest of my Tuesday Throwdown Teamies: Kim Sherrod; Carol Gill; Ceal Pritchett; Davi Reid; Joyce Lofton; Julie Wells; Nana Connie; Sally Dube and Vicky Fortier

I'm also playing with Lexi's Creations #84 "Monochromatic"; ABC Challenges #17 "All Stitched Up"; Cards In Envy "Polka Dots and/or Stripes"; Created with Love #29"Things That Fly" ; All Sorts Challenges #194 "Things with Wings"; Paper MakeUp Stamps DigiMakeover #76 "Anything Goes" and WordArt Wednesday #67 "Love/Anything Goes".

Thanks for stopping by. I'm looking forward to seeing your monochromatic creations, so get crafting and link up your projects!

Beijinhos!

  4. This is a wonderfully gorgeous monochromatic card, Asha. It uses one of my most favorite pieces of Word Art Wednesday word art, and it blesses my heart to see you using (and enjoying) our free scripture files. Thanks for sharing your talents with us, and for playing along in this week's challenge. It's such a treat to have you play along with us and I hope to see you again real soon. This card is really sweet!

  10. WOW Asha, this is beautiful. I love the colour and the flowers and butterfly are coloured beautiful. Do you have the complete set of SNs. I just have the first 72, but am thinking of investing in the remainder 4 x 24 sets. I will have to buy them over the next few months but wondered if you could recommend which 24 set to get the most benefit from at the moment - thats if you do have them LOL! Thanks, Karon.
