He Makes All Things New!

A CAS card today.  So many great challenges to play along with this week, I couldn't get this design out of my head last night.  Who has time for laundry?  Now that I've joined the blogging and card making world, I think I've finally got my priorities straight (hope Hubby isn't reading)!

The flowers and raindrops were Silhouette 5-petal flowers design (I cut the drops out of a flower).  I lightly rolled the little flowers with a McGill flower making tool.  The cloud is from Silhouette 6 clouds design.  I wrote out the sentiment on Word and printed it out on the green and then cut it with a circle cutter.  The gems are Recollections (Michael's brand).  I sent the raindrops through my Xyron create-a-sticker machine which makes it so easy to adhere.

This card is inspired by Revelation 21:5-6
 5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” 6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.

This card is entered in the following challenges:
