Get Well with Butterfly Swirls

Each week our new pastor emails us with updates about illnesses, hospitalizations, and surgeries. I truly need to make a lot more get well cards!  Here's one inspired by this lovely photo at Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #251:


The peacock and colors inspired me to find a dark blue scrap of "peacock feather designer paper" from an old CTMH packet called Magnifique and a lighter swirled pattern paper I've had a long time. To continue that blue and peacock theme, I stamped the words and images using my new CTMH "Peacock" ink!    Both the image and th e verse from Jeremiah 30:17 are from an Our Daily Bread Designs stamp set, "Get Well." The Spellbinder's Nestabilities die is "Labels 25."

I love the first half of this verse. God loves us and wants the best for us. It's a precious promise to claim:

17 ‘For I will restore you to health
And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the Lord,
  Jeremiah 30:17a  (NASB)

May this verse also encourage you at times you need healing. 

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations - anything goes with a die and stamping
That Craft Place Challenge - BLUE (I used Peacock and Lilac Mis inks, Pacifica and Heavenly Blue papers, B21 BAby Blue Copic marker, and an unknown blue Bazzill.
Word Art Wednesday #197 - anything uplifting

Thank you for visiting. May God provide healing when you need it and bless your creative endeavors May you bless others with your creations!
