Butterfly Anniversary

I like to celebrate love.  It's so nice to be happy for a couple who recognize that Jehovah God is the originator of marriage and the first family on earth.  Married couples who base their relationship on the Bible are very wise.  Jehovah has our best interests at heart and his advice and counsel always works.  Proverbs 3:5,6 says, "Trust in Jehovah with all your heart, And do not rely on your own understanding."  So, I'm happy to make special cards for my friends who also celebrate their love.  Here is a recent card I made for some new friends.


I used a chocolate chip card base and added a panel of white.  This set the tone for the dramatic paper I used.  It's Bo Bunny Gabriella Collection.  I think it's an older paper pack from my stash.  I used distress ink to soften edges.  I then cut a large butterfly image from one of the matching papers and inked the edges with a honey color.  I covered the entire butterfly with a clear Wink of Stella pen.


The sparkle and shine doesn't show up in the photo but it is really pretty.  After I let it dry I curled the wings with a pencil and mounted it front and center.  I drew antenna with a white gel marker.


The Bible tells us, "Do not be anxious over anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving, let your petitions by made known to God."  This applies in the marriage arrangement and in life.  If we let Jehovah be a part of our marriage it has a true chance of being successful.


So, happy anniversary friends everywhere!
