Easel Card #2 Black, White and Silver.

I said in my last post that I wanted to make a similar card in different colours using the Umbria die set again. So here is another version in black, white and silver,
I have to say I LOVE IT!
This time I used my new Tattered Lace Dove die by Stephanie Weightman., the smaller one from this set....
I cut my dove using white card that has tiny silvery polka dots on it, and it sparkles nicely...
I had another play with my Serif Page Plus program and created a scripture for the centre of the card,
this time taken from Chronicles 15:7, I just realised maybe I forgot a comma!
I used papers from a massive pad of 12x12 black /white and gold/cream papers but I don't know the brand, sorry!
I cut the Umbria frame from silver card which contrasts nicely with the black and white papers
so here's the front of the card.....
As I wanted to enter a sketch challenge from Sketch Saturday the position of the dove and the patterned paper and ribbon worked out just right.

here's the inside of the easel card
I intend to add a small sentiment but this card is especially for someone and that's a personal encouragement!
To finish off my easel card I added a die cut butterfly (quickutz) and some AB clear crystal gems 
along with more of the sparkly silveribbon

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Sketch Saturday
2 Sisters Challenge....Black,White + Another Colour
Cute Card Thursday....What a Gem
Sister Act Card Challenge.... Anything goes
Just For Fun....Anything goes

I am so enjoying crafting with my new dies but the best is yet to come! 
I was given a total of 6 Tattered Lace dies including the doves.they 
so much more playing to come, I am so loving this!

Thanks for Visiting,
Enjoy your day,
Love Crafteresa xx
