CASEing A Friend

Today's CASE (Copy And Share Everything) Artist on Christian Papercraft Magazine is my Friend and fellow Sweet 'n Sassy DT member Deedee Anderson. You can find her gallery here if you want to play along she has some beautiful cards to CASE. I choose to CASE this one for the sketch and this one for the technique.
I also made this card for this week's Bible Verse Thursday on CPCM where the challenge is to make a card using a bible verse of course but also using the colors Black, Tan and Teal/Aqua Blue.
My card uses a Digi stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps Gossamer Butterfly and a computer generated verse which I just noticed that I forgot to put the verse reference 2 Corinthians 5:17. I colored the Butterfly with my copics and distress the paper with distress inks. The technique used on the butterfly is the cracked glass technique, then wiped with distress ink to distress it more. I added a black ribbon to bring out the black in the design paper and butterfly.

I choose the verse 2 Corinthians 5:17 because butterflies remind me of this verse they become a new creature, as do we when we accept Christ as our Savior. The old is gone and we are a new creation!

Forgiven and Free!
