Growing In Unity Day TWO!!

Hi Peeps!  Thank you for coming back today!!
Today's card is a special one.
 
My sweet Mother-in-law sent home her favorite bible as a gift for me, isn't it beautiful?  Such a special gift I can't make a card nice enough for a family heirloom like that. 
But I tried.  I used Half of Her Doily on the black paper with clear embossing and I LOVE it.  It is so pretty in real life you can't believe it.  I was worried because the paper is textured, it still turned out so perfect. 
It is hard to tell but I embossed the pink strip of paper with a Lifestyle Crafts folder named Doily.  The sentiment is from Thank You Words and the butterflies *swoon* are from the June 2012 KOM Sweet Summer Love.  I wish I could say my 5 year old cut them out, but that would be a fib.  I cut them out and I just don't cut very well....   LOL  The flat back pearls are by Recollections and I spent such a long time getting them all stuck on.  PHEW! They are so tiny and my craft knife kept flinging them all over!  Someone tell me an easier way please LOL
This is a sketch.  An awesome sketch.  Sadly I have no idea where it came from.  I right click on them and if there is more than one I paste them in word and forgot all about writing down where I got it.  The sketch is an oval instead of a circle and the butterflies are stars.  The pearls are dotted lines and on all 4 sides.
Please remember to leave a comment this week, Carlee will be picking a winner for 2 free itty bitty's! 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
PS I am not over how much I love that name tag the fabulous Kelli made me <3 font="">

This is beautiful, Noelle, and I know she will love it! I can't fussy cut, either, if it makes you feel any better.

I absolutely love the embossed doily ! That's so sweet of your mother in law to pass you the Bible. What a great gift

What a great gift and a beautiful thank you card. I love the black and hot pink colors!

Wow this is a perfect heirloom to be given by your mother-in-law. I love the good writing on the bible. A lot of the bibles being made now doesn't have the gold writing on them as will as the edges of each page being gold. At least I haven't seen one in a very long time. I love that you embossed the doily using the same tone on tone effect. Very pretty card. TFS AJ-

What a beautiful Bible, and what a very generous gift from your MIL! What a special lady! I love the way the card compliments the Bible. I hope you will send the picture of the both of them together. I always see stuff in symbols, so I see here a beautiful medallion in the back ground, the "full circle" that we live and move and have our being in God and how Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the End, and how God's love encloses us and is a love without end, like a circle/medallion, and the butterflies are a beautiful symbol of our new life in Christ, and transforming from old ways into the new. Just a beautiful card for a beautiful gift! :)
