Picnic Card

Good morning!  I am up kind of early today.  I want to post this new card that I made yesterday.  After I was finished  making this card I took it and asked my husband what he thought about it.  He said that it was nice( but then he says that about all the cards I show him) and then all of a sudden it just came to me.  It is my picnic card.  I think it’s the white and red checkered butterflies.  In movies the picnic blanket is always checkered , isn‘t it? .  So I guess this thought just pooped into my head. Lol.  So anyways, I really like this card.  My sister gave me these butterflies.  They are pieces of fabric shaped into butterflies with stickies on the back.  Pretty neat!  she gave me other colors too,  so today I plan on  using them and hopefully I’ll post those tomorrow.  So I traced around the butterflies to add a layer.  I picked some red textured paper for the card itself.  Next I took some white paper and tore it to cover a good portion of the front.  I then added 3 Real Red eyelets to the top, and red ribbon to the bottom.  I thought it still needed something so I added the red jewels on the left.  Then at the top I added the bible verse   In everything   give thanks.   1 Thess. 5:18   The verse   is just what this handmade card needed to finish it off.  Hopefully I get some time today and be able to come up with some new ideas and cards for tomorrows post.  Have a great day!
