Lucy's Rainbow Challenge

I love that Lin finds all the great challenges then posts the most gorgeous cards on her blog for them. She posted THIS lovely butterfly card for Lucy's Rainbow Week. I was so impressed that I got right to work making a rainbow themed card too.

It was definitely time for some Lawn Fawn fun so I went with my favorite set and did some bicycle paper-piecing. This is just a simple card...some DeLovely papers, Cruising through Life stamps, Copics, a bit of silver bling and lots of cutting and gluing.



Lisa Spangler is also getting my creativity going with her fun blog decor accents. I used the Frame option in Picnik to add this Polaroid frame to my card photo.


~ Psalm 4:6-8 ~
"Many people say, 'Who will show us better times?'
Let Your face smile on us, Lord.
You have given me greater joy
than those who have abundant harvests of grain and new wine.
In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for You alone, O Lord, will keep me safe."
blessings,
nancy
