Still thinking Spring

I found some coordinating scrap papers and thought the colors and images would give a Spring effect so I am continuing in the Spring theme. Also entering this in the CARDS challenge this week which is to create a grid.

Le parfum des fleurs means The perfume of flowers, but you knew that I'm sure! I also used Hero Arts Envelope pattern stamp for a subtle effect and I used my second 'Brenda' butterfly which I distressed in vintage photo to coordinate with the colors. I still have one 'Brenda' butterfly remaining. The first comment on this post will receive the tag!

 And this is a little project I made for Sunday school this weekend. Together with Marilène we have a class of about twenty children from the age of 4-7. They will all be making a little lantern like this, which I have to prepare this afternoon (yes, 20 of them!) but they have to decorate their own.
Our theme is 'The Word of God' and I wanted to illustrate how the Word of God is like a Light, as it spreads light wherever it goes, whenever it is read and proclaimed! I have used vellum behind the verse and will light up a candle behind it so that it lights up.

Your Word is a Lamp to my feet
and a light to my path.
Psalm 119:105

Have a lovely weekend!
