I've been playing with some of my birthday pressies this weekend. I've created a card using my new 6x6 pad of papers,    I love the navy blue and creamy colours and the different pretty floral patterns in this pad.  It's the Papermania Capsule Collection The 6x6 size is scaled down so it's fabulous for card making.
So here's the easel card I made using these papers
Unfortunately my lovely navy blue card has photographed a lot darker than it actually is :o( 
on my monitor it looks black GASP! 
Anyhow, that's the front of my card, the scripture is a rubber stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs and the praying hands were cut from a Sizzix thinlet die, I have used this die so many times, it's become an old friend! I used Promakers to add some shading  and some faux pearls to accent the frame. 
Here's the inside of the card.....
I also played with my Serif Page Plus program on my laptop and produced a cicular sentiment for the inside of my card using part of a scripture from Micah 7;7
I am so pleased with this card I am gonna make some similar cards using the same dies but different papers and colour themes just for fun and to see how differently they look!

I'm entering a few challenges

Talking of Healing..
I have been challenged lately as to what I really believe about healing! I find it's so easy to believe God will heal the friends I pray for and even folk I don't know, I have seen it happen! 
But when it comes to myself and my personal need for healing I am not so sure, maybe it's the pain that overtakes my thoughts, or just simply doubt that diminishes my faith? I don't know ?
But what I do know is that God is true to His word and I have to hold on to that in the battle I am in! 

Back To My Card...
For this card I have used 2 new dies from 2 new sets I had for my birthday.
Here's the fabulous Umbria set from the Italian collection, Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson.
I fell in love with this as soon as I saw it, think I will be using this beautiful die set a lot! Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson is a new company to me I love the size of the dies.
I also bought the Creative Expressions filigree bow die set also by Sue Wilson 
but only used the lacy strip die from this set on my card. 

Tonic Studio 

Then I used dies from a very practical set of circle dies,.. The scalloped circle layering dies from Tonic Studios. The set has 14 dies in it so it was a no brainer to get this set with my birthday money! 

I had some beautiful tattered lace dies fo my birthday too but that's another post!!!

Thanks for Visiting today,
have a great week
Love Crafteresa xx

This is such a great card creation...Love the color you chose and the sentiment is perfect with wonderful font and message. We are so blessed that you joined us at our challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. I hope you join us again at our new Challenge starting today. Leaving you with inspiration from Galatians 5:1 which says, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."
