More Communion Cards

You may already know how much I appreciate the kids in Simon's class at school who are always ready to help him do things he has any difficulty with - especially the girls.  Five of the children in his class make their First Holy Communion this Sunday.  I made cards for this boys earlier in the week and these are for the girls.  SO much easier making cards for girls - you can really go to town on pretty papers and embellishments.

I used the insert from the Spellbinders D-Lite filigree cross to create a pretty aperture in the window of the base card.  Papers from various paper packs, the Spellbinders Persian Accents and a butterfly punch were used to frame and embellish the aperture.  The butterflies were sponged with Worn Lipstick DI, and the girls' names were cut with my Silhouette using the Abbeyline font (free download).

Here is a look at the inside of one of the cards.  I saved the cross which I cut from the frame mat on the front and used it on the inside.  The aperture is clearly visible here too.  I love the versatility of this Spellbinders Filigree Cross.   The chalice and sentiment are from the WMS Celtic Heritage set.

I was inspired by the following challenges

to use 

Green and Pink
