Butterfly Kindness



This card fulfills 3 card making challenges.  If you haven't figured it out by now, I just LOVE butterflies!  So this card by Understand Blue for SCS Featured Stamper 238 was an easy inspiration for me.   The colors are from the previous weeks SCS Color Challenge 337 using Real Red, Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight.  The card also loosely fits with the Flutterby Wednesday 169 challenge to celebrate.  My card celebrates kindness and is a reminder to be kind with my words and actions.  The Bible verse that encourages me is Galatians 5:22 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,".


At work in the busy Emergency Department we write our names on the board in the rooms so patients know which nurse will be caring for them.  I have started adding a simple smiley face under my name.  The smiley face reminds me to smile and speak with kindness.  Some of my patients have commented that the smiley face makes them feel a little more at ease in the stressful situation.


Recipe:
Stamps: Filigree Fantasy - Verve
Paper:  WW, Real Red, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight
Ink:  Real Red
Accessories:  Butterfly punches, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Stick on Gems
