I just LOVE this new set!!  If you have followed me for any length of time you know how much I love using butterflies on my cards and how much I love scripture stamps.  Grace is such a gift, one we can graciously give and one we can humbly receive.

Couldn't stop at just one card so made a second :)

Used one of my favorite colour combinations of pink and green for this card, and added black accents for a bit of pop.  Adore the sentiments in this set and the butterfly dies - you need not say more LOL!
This release is going to get a lot of use in my craft room!

Marissa, your cards are lovely. Love all the layers, and the little details with the string and embellishments. Both cards really frame the lovely verses beautifully, bringing attention to the 'amazing' messages. I love both color combos, and am especially fond of the second.

Everytime I get toward the bottom of a blog hop list I think "The cards will just be the same stuff as the first ones". And every time I am amazed at the different perspective that everyone creates their cards with. You think I would learn by now!
