Beautiful Lavender Card and Vintage Style Rolodex Cards

Hi all, I am sharing some projects with a feminine and vintage flair.

Following is the card I added, measuring 5"by7", in lavender hues, and a vintage touch.
I started by creating two rolodex cards that I added to my shabby base, distressed at all sides. I also added a stamped sentiment, which is tucked under some gorgeous vintage lace. The seam binding and vintage lavender button added the perfect touch, and for a bit of movement, I made it a shaker!!

The tea bag was even decorated with embossing thread to make it more authentic, and I made a pink flower for a pop of soft color, and added glitter to it.
All of the tea set pieces were up-cycled from packaging, and were beautifully cut with my Spellbinders Platinum 6!

For the Rolodex cards I also used vintage colors and a beautiful set of sentiments. One is a Bible verse, the other a sweet sentiment about friendship.
I used gold glimmer mist, my gold Nuvo glitter pen, washi tape, glitter, and sequins for little touches of glimmer throughout. I also added pink silk thread to the bottom pictured card, and a handmade flower.
I was very happy with the results, and you can watch a video here:

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
