I decided to show off the beautiful God's Love Set. It also comes with the matching Butterfly and Butterfly Die!!! For my card I used the awesome silhouette image and one of the sentiments in the set.

My inspiration to create this card came actually from this weeks The Shabby Tea Room #127. This challenge is  asking us to use the following colors- CREAM, PINK, AQUA AND NEWSPAPER PRINT. I immediately thought of the greatest, most comforting book...the Bible.!!! I stamped the silhouette image in the required pink color and for the newspaper print I repeated to ink the quote using aqua on the right hand side. The edges were distressed with some cream ink. At last I added the Doily, the Ribbon with a Button, Scrapper's Floss, Pearls and some Flowers.

Now it's time to hop on over to DEB's BLOG!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!!! Have fun hopping....
