He Is Our Peace and Our Salvation

Today I am sharing a couple of  additional cards I designed using   
Graciellie Design's April release 'PEACE', in addition to the mid-month BLOG HOP!
This time I used two other beautiful sentiments from the 
digital package, "He is our Peace and our Salvation" and "Peace begins with a smile".

Aren't these designs and sentiments perfect for the Easter season!  
If you would like to learn how I made these, please read on ~ 

The bluebirds are busy building new homes here in South Carolina,

 and I wanted this card to show  the deep blues and peach colors of the Blue Birds by using Copics B41, B45, B93, E02, E11, and C11.

Then I used Spellbinder label two dies  for the matting.
  Additionally a deep red feather and soft pink flat back pearls were added to finish the card.  
As we await the celebration of the Risen Savior, aren't we blessed in knowing He is Our Peace and our Salvation!

For my second card, I wanted to design a masculine or sympathy card using darker shades and the sentiment from Mother Teresa included in the new release package. 

The bird is Copic colored with C3, Y35, andY38. and popped up with several sprigs of chocolate brown ferns.
