Red and Turquoise

Hello, it's Bridget here with a couple of cards using one of my favorite color combinations! 
I always smile when my Dad says something along the lines of - "this is the best pie (steak, pizza, cake, cookie, or whatever is being consumed!) I've ever eaten!" 
Whatever he's eating at the moment is the best he's ever had! 
Well, I'm a little bit like that with color combo's - whatever I'm working with at the moment
feels like it's my very favorite!
But I do like red and turquoise because of the strong contrast. 
For the first card I used Stampin Up markers to color the image from Nature Silhouettes 2.
I added a sentiment from The Gift of You set, which has many beautiful sentiments highlighting the beauty and love of adoption. 
The is one of Korin's Cards for a Cause sets and you can find all about it HERE.
But I thought this particular sentiment would work very well for situations where either a couple or a group were praying for someone. 
 I know that our ladies discipleship study likes to let the person
who's asked us to pray for them know that we've been doing exactly that!
Other supplies include:
Spellbinders Nestabilities Decorative Labels 8
American Crafts jute twine
Woodware butterfly punch
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
My second card is made using the Birds and Feather Die set and a wonderful Bible verse sentiment from the beautiful set Under His Wings.
I think all of the verses in this set work together beautifully with the feather and bird die-cuts!
I sponged the feathers with Stampin Up's Real Red and Taken with Teal ink and then added some multi-colored twine. 
The little heart button seemed appropriate for a verse highlighting God's love!
Whatever your weekend holds I hope it's a good one for you!
Thanks for stopping by today.
