God'sLove RedStriped

God’s Love stamped on SEI Promise Me in Distress Barn Door and sponged with Tea Dye.

I took the solid butterfly of 2 Step Butterflies, inked it with Barn Door, inked the Grunge Butterfly Background with black… and ‘kissed’ the two together then stamped and die cut the butterfly! The matching Butterfly 2 Die makes fussy cutting so simple!

I stamped the verse from the set, cutting LOVE out and popped it atop the Spellbinders Fancy Tags 3.

God'sLove red stripe inside

I finished off the inside with with a sponged piece of DP and the Michael Card song quote.

Prepare to be dazzled as you hop on to Angie’s

Thanks for stopping and may you have a happy, healthy 2012!
