Perfect Peace

Happy Saturday!  I have a card to share with you today using the challenge for ODBD Shining the Light (ODBDSLC100)!  Today at ODBD we are officially kicking off the 4th Anniversary Celebrations going on all week!  Check out this link for a schedule of events!  For today's challenge we are focusing on 4th Anniversary themes.  The colors are aqua or blue topaz with an added scripture.  Check out the link to find out how to play along and have a chance to win!

For my card, I am tried to focus on mostly hues of aquas. Of course, a few hues of blues were in my MME dp.      My scripture if from Scripture Collection 7 and I also use the butterfly image from the Faith set stamped ever so subtle behind the scripture.   I framed the scripture with a Spellbinder's die.  I added a seam binding bow topped with an aqua button and finished with a few silver pearls. 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
