Celebrating Women - Proverbs 31

Hello Everyone,
Antoinette here sharing a couple cards I made using images from Michelle Perkette StudiosMichelle Perkette Studios is the gracious Sponsor for this weeks Challenge at Twist of Faith. The theme this week is Women/Proverbs 31- Celebrating Women. To give you a little more input I am sharing for your reading Proverbs 31: 25-31 from the NIV/Women of Faith Study Bible.
Proverbs 31: 25-31
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.  She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

This first card I made I used 'Guinevere' an image by Mitchelle Perkette Studio

This second card is made using 'Thanks Mum' image by Michelle Perkette Studios.

Supplies Used on Both:

I wanted to share with you some flowers I have been making out of two old jeans one blue and the other white, and old light blue linen top, some white shelf rubber liner that I
 mixed with flower punches I already had then topped with a brad or rhinestone. I have been having some down time lately and not able to do much but recline or in those times I cut circles out of old materials and then cut slices around the circle. What I loved about the white and light blue material in this round is that they fray beautifully if you play with the cut strips with your fingers or the edge of scissors. 
I hope you enjoyed todays cards and flower making inspiration. Go by the Twist of Faith Challenge Blog and check out the other Design Teams inspiration.
Until next time this Shabby Chic Grannie is out.
