Love... Love... Love...#24

This week at Twist of Faith Cards ... we have a  LOVE CHALLENGE... it doesn't have to be a valentine, there are many other occasions to share love! And of course, your creation must contain a scripture or inspirational verse.

We are sponsored by the wonderful Michelle Perkett Studio, and I can't do anything BUT love Michelle's images and artistry! I created my card using the Love is Patient (expired) Freebie  and roses from the Roses Heart Proverb image...

I printed the  Love is Patient image on white cardstock, cooured the heart with red gitter pen, and trimmed it to size. I also printed the Roses Heart Proverb and coloured the roses using Marvy markers. I took some lengths of thin gold cord, tied a simple knot in each, and added them to the image layer. I fixed the image to a  mat of red cardstock, then fixed it directly to a white card base.

What of the roses?  Well, the original image looks like this:

Digital Stamp Christian Lord Roses Heart Proverb Bible Cardmaking Scrapbooking StampingGorgeous, isn't it?  I had to find a project that would require me to snip away at those flowers, and I thought that this was the perfect one!  I took a guess at how many roses I needed, and snipped away... not individually, I cut them into sections, to fit the corners of the Scripture frame. They are fixed with DS tape, and some of them overlap others, so there is a little dimension here and there... I just love that the roses are so vivid red! Just like those gorgeous velvet red roses...
