Use Blue

Our theme for you this week at Twist of Faith is

BLUE ... USE BLUE!

This is a colour challenge, so we want to see lots of blue ... maybe you'll create a monochromatic card or perhaps you'll use blue along with others... whichever you pick, make BLUE  your main colour! Remember our 'twist of faith.' Your creation must also include a scripture, or quote or an uplifiting sentiment that suits this week's theme.

Taste and see that the LORD is good.
Oh the joys of those who takes refuge in him!
Psalm 34:8 NLT


Even though we just had, as our theme last week, "children," I went with that theme again this week. Our sponsor is Stamp Art by Kathryne, and this beautiful guardian angel was one of the two images Kathryne provided the design team. Is the image just BEAUTIFUL? The image is perfect for a new baby card, a christening or a baptism, and keeping with that idea, I used part of a verse from Psalm 127 as my sentiment.
 
The card is rather self explanatory. I used a white card base, layered blue card and then a blue patterned DP (from a Recollections pad). I punched a white lacy border using a Martha Stewart border punch, cut my image using a Spellbinder classic circle and then scalloped circle dies. I added a white double bow, white flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some blue gems. The card, to me, has a simple elegance -- not too fussy, but not plain either -- more in keeping with a sweet baby.

  4. Jenee, you've done it again.....another darling creation. I love this image, even if I don't believe angels actually have wings...hahaa....because this angel cradles that precious babe with such a look of love and peace. You've coloured it beautifully, and those pretty flowers add to the sweet simplicity of this lovely card.

  12. At first, I couldn't figure out why this wasn't my favorite image to pick for this challenge.. It's because it's really looking and not cute.. Now I like it because of how you colored the image.. You made her pretty, I think!
