Unity Friends with Flair (6.04.2012)


Hello Friends! Wishing you a blessed Good Friday and a Happy Easter!!  This weekend, as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus, may your hearts be filled with much joy and thankfulness.


On today's card, I got out my Twinkling H2O to paint the beautiful butterflies image from the IOD set "Love Never Fails".  I did some sponging as well with Distress Inks Evergreen Bough, Antique Linen and Spun Sugar.  The sentiment is from the set "Faith" and it was cut out using the Petite Ovals Spellbinders dies and sponged with Distress Ink Antique Linen.  I love this Scripture sentiment. The patterned papers are from Simple Stories Year-o-graphy 6x6 pad.

Thank you for visiting today. As always, I'm thankful for your comments - I love reading them & likewise I love to visit your blogs too.

Take care,
Kary

I spent a fortune on those paints when they first came out and they just sit in my closet. Thanks for the nudge I need to get them out and try using them. This is just lovely!
