Crafters of Faith 1st Group challenge


hi there, 
This card was a real joy to create. Our blogging group, Crafters of Faith, was challenged by our Leader- Kelly, to create a card or scrapbook page that should include an image of something that best depicts your thoughts and heart-feelings of what Genesis and the creation means to you and at least one of these colors of the creation: Yellow, Blue, Green and/or Brown!

have the yellow, blue, a little green but also added purple (for royalty)

Changed my mind so many times in making this card. Decided finally on creating a night and day background with the butterfly representing our change when we "put off the old man" and "put on the new" when we accept his wonderful gift of salvation! When our Lord created this world for us, he knew we would need a Saviour...so John 3:16 naturally comes to mind.... 

Can't wait to pop around to the rest of the group's blogs and see what they created!


have a blessed day,
supplies:
cardstock: GKD's Wild Lilac, In the Navy, White
