"Great Is Your Reward!"

I really wish I could take a good picture of this card. It is so much prettier IRL! Honest! I made this card for a special little friend at church. She is nine years old and was just baptized last Sunday. It was special for me to watch her be baptized as I have watched her grow from a small toddler. I wanted her to know how special she is and this card with a little gift is going her way tomorrow. The image is a free coloring page from Precious Moments. I colored it with Copics, and glued some half pearls ton her shell.  I used a Magnolia dohicky for the flowers and leaves.  and added a pink checked brad to the center. I also sponged the edges with pink ink. A MS boarder heart punch and and some embossing with my crop-a-dile finished off the front of my card. I used some Cherrylynn dies for the butterflies and my sentiment is from Heartfelt.
My Song: (Point of Grace- Not That Far From Bethlehem)
Underneath the stars
Just a simple man and wife
Somewhere in the dark
His words cut the silent night
Take my hand, for the child
That you carry is God's own
And though it seems the road is long

We're not that far from Bethlehem
Where all our hope and joy begins
For in our arms we'll cherish him
We're not that far from Bethlehem

You are so sweet and considerate. God surely put you into my life for a reason, perhaps to show me what a good person should be doing! I hope the little girl is thrilled with her card.
