ODBDSLC240-Fluttering or Flying

Good morning!!
Well we have fluttering AND flying here this morning!
Today starts a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs so let's create!

This is a Lever Card!  It's a great way to show off a lot of stamps and die cuts! This card has a lot of the new release for May. I love the birds and butterflies of this release!!! They are so pretty!
This card is a bit too complicated to explain here so I'll give you a link to a tutorial HERE.
I used the die cuts and stamps from ODBD to decorate and the beautiful paper from the Christian Faith Collection.

Please visit my design team sisters for more inspiration:

To see all the projects created for ODBDSLC240 or to join the challenge click here. You have until May 31, 2015 at 8:00pm EDT to join us. By participating in the challenge, you have a chance to win a  $15 ODBD Gift Certificate good towards the purchase of stamps in the “stamps column” on the ODBD website, or to be spotlighted on the ODBD Blog at our next challenge. The random prize winner will be posted on our next challenge post. Please do not post on Flicker as many of us do not have the ability to comment on your cards nor can we spotlight your cards on the blog.

Things that flutter and fly, they inspire us to paint, photograph, learn to fly...they inspire us to look to the One who made these things and all things.  Our Father in heaven, who loves us and provides everything we need, He made these things as part of the beautiful world we live in; to be part of our lives.  God is so good to us! He blesses us in ways that, for the most part, we take for granted.  How many times do you think about your beating heart or the air we breathe?
Do we think about the grand plan when we go to the pharmacy to pick up our medication that very likely was made from the leaves of a plant? Or put on perfume made from the oils of flowers?  When I think about the way the body is made and forms in the womb and how everything works so perfectly, it is just beyond my comprehension. 
Look up in the sky and see the stars and know that there are galaxies upon galaxies  beyond the star that we can see...our Lord God made them all!  One of my favorite verses is this: Ps. 8:3 "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him." Ps. 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork". And one more, one of my all time favorites is Ps. 139:13-14 "For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well". How can I not love He who loves me so much.
Thanks for visiting today.

What a gorgeous fold card, and I've really stepped it up a lot of notches! And how beautiful the flowers are with the flourishes to make it so delicate and feminine. And, I do love your birds and the nest. So sweet, and what a blessing of all things beautiful God has given us on this earth. Can we just imagine what heaven will be like? Hugs, sweet friend!
