Layers of Color Challenge- Metal

Here is this weeks entry for the Layers of Color challenge-Metal. Awesome challenge! I enjoyed this one, especially since I wanted to make a Baptism gift for V. I am really excited to give this gift because I hope that it will be a true Ebenezer in this gals life, that's why I made it. I used upholstery tacks for the metal requirement. On the pink fiber is a LOC Cross charm I made from shrink plastic. I added a bible verse around the
edge of the piece along with gold metallic picot trim to add just a bit of shine. I also used LOC Fleur Heart stamp with glimmer paints to add texture to one side.

To remind her to live transformed. I love the imagery of the butterfly. I like to use it to represent the life of the believer and our journey with Christ.
As it says in:
Romans 12:2

Do not conform any longer 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.

It has been a delight to see the Lord transform this wandering soul into a child of God. I have watched her shed her old wings of life to become a new creation in Christ Jesus. What a joy it is to welcome another child of God into the Kingdom of Heaven...can you hear the angels rejoicing?
