Our Father in Heaven!

Hello, it's Bridget here with the first post after our fun April Release Mini Blog Hops!
I hope you enjoyed all the inspiration from the Design Team with the new sets.
Today I'd like to show you a couple of cards I created with the sentiments from the
new set His Child combined with some other SNSS sets.
I love these wonderful truths about our relationship with our heavenly Father
through Jesus, and though the silhouttes of the children are fabulous, I wanted to show
how flexible the sentiments are with many different images and die-cuts.
For the first card I added an embossed heart to highlight the
love of God mentioned in the sentiment, using SNSS's Heart Die Set -
love all the sizes and shapes in this set of dies!
The sentiment panel is popped up over two dp panels, and to finish I added a trio of buttons.
It was a quick, easy card, and there's plenty of creamy white space for a clean look.
Supplies include:
Sizzix Plaid embossing folder
October Afternoon dp
MFT Color Box Licorice Black ink
Smooth Cream card stock

For the second card I sponged a panel with green ink along the bottom, then stamped with several images from Nature Silhouettes. 
Using clouds from SNSS's Cloud and Raindrops Die Set I masked and sponged a sky scene, then popped up a couple of clouds. 
To finish I added a fence die-cut using SNSS's Fence and Grass Die Set and a few sponged punched butterflies. 
Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope your day is a good one!
Supplies include:
Stampin Up Lucky Limeade ink
Ranger Distress Broken China ink
Stampin Up Melon Mambo ink
Martha Stewart Butterfly punch

Both of your cards are so pretty.
Do you have a link to a tutorial on how you get your sponged backgrounds to look so smooth? I'd like to try it but am not sure where to start. Anything I sponge generally comes out sort of blotchy looking. thanks for any help you can offer.
Blessings~ Birgit

Both cards are terrific! I love the scripture the sentiment comes from! Love how you used hearts on the card! Stunning artistry on your second that's the way to create a scene!!! I love scenes but I am not very good at them. You are inspiring me to create scenes in a whole new way!
