You Are Loved Birthday and a Poem

For information on the items below, click on their links

This card was for my oldest granddaughter. When she was a toddler she had imaginary butterflies who were her friends. One of her butterflies names was Zsa-Zsa. She has since gotten older, so I used the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and coordinating Elegant Butterfly punch to create a grown up Zsa-Zsa butterfly to add to her grown up card.
The color combination and Framed Tulip idea came from one of "Create with Connie and Mary's" color challenges (Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade).
I keep finding myself using the You are Loved stamp set, which worked so well for the floral motifs. The sentiment "Happiest Birthday" is from the Apothecary Art stamp set.

My granddaughter submitted a poem to Answers in Genesis and they published it on their blog. I'm sharing her poem here and the link to the post, "An Eleven-year-old Who Gets It!"

Oh, what a sight
When God created light.
He called the light day
And the darkness night.
He separated darkness
From light as you know.
God saw that it was good.
And this is not just a show.

What did God do
On day number two?
I’ll give you a hint,
I’ll give you a clue.
Sometimes it’s black
And sometimes it’s blue.
It’s heaven or sky,
Remember the clue?

What would it be like
Without fruit, trees, or plants?
Just try to imagine it.
I bet you can’t.
If God hadn’t created
Land on the third day
You’d always be floating
Or swimming.  No way!

Three days have passed
And there still are more.
And right now it is
Day number four.
When God creates
Very wonderful lights.
Like stars, sun, and moon
For thousands of nights.

This is what
The fifth day features:
Sea animals and Flying creatures.
He made all those
Creatures on that day.
And that is all
I have to say.

Now the sixth day
Is very neat.
So how about
We have a seat.
He made animals of land
And formed man by His hand.
Out of dust man came
And soon you will find out his name.

It’s day number seven
And our week is done.
Watching God create
Was really fun.
Now it’s time for
God to rest.
Which day did
You like the best?

Thanks for letting me share!
