Be Transformed!

I made a card today for a friend who needs to hear the Truth!  So often we have little voices in our minds telling us everything we do is wrong.  Sometimes those voices aren't just in our head, but coming out of other's mouths!  The Truth is there is only One voice we need to listen to for approval and acceptance.  That voice is Jesus'!  Roman's 12:2 says, "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will."  We need to transform by renewing our minds with HIS truths about us - He created, loves, and knows us.  He has a plan for us and we don't have to be perfect.  Hope you like the card today:


I cut the butterfly with my Silhouette and cut the curvy strips with a Creative Memories cutting tool I've had for ten years now.  The gems are from Michaels and I colored them with Copics.

This card is entered in the following challenges:

The Play Date Cafe: PDCC 128
 


Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges: Transparent - (I'm hoping the holes in the butterfly wings are transparent enough)

Hope you all have a great day, and remember that you are worth SO MUCH to the One who created you!
