SSIC Oh So Bright

What a fun time we had last week, celebrating the 3rd birthday of the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - thank you for all of the support and love you give us each week!
  My post this week is prescheduled as I have just arrived in Melbourne to join Stacey Caron and Kim Hupke from Spellbinders Paper Arts for a few days - what a blessing! 

This week our challenge is brought to us by the lovely Jerusha who has chosen:

 " For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins."
Romans 3:23-24

Jerusha has challenged us to use only bright colours, no neutrals, browns, etc.

I have to confess straight up that I have broken the RULZ - not intentionally, but broken them all the same!  I realised once I had photographed my card that my card base is white - does that count!?  Sorry Jerusha.....my bad! :)

I have used orange card with the Spellbinders A-2 Fancy Weave Card Creator, adding Basic Grey paper, lace flowers and Wild Orchid Flowers.

The gorgeous butterfly is a Donna Salazar Wonderful Wings Licensed Design for Spellbinders, it is paired with the coordinating Want2Scrap bling.  All of my Dies are cut using the Grand Calibur.

This card is for the following challenges:
2 Sisters - Fall
Allsorts - Layers
Inspire Me FridaysAlways Anything Goes
Raise The Barcelebrate fall
Stamp Manuse hot colors
