Faith Is...

It is only fitting that my first card is about FAITH, as this is such a vital part of who I am! I love to combine two of my passions....for God and for paper!

I made this card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (on SCS), one of my favourites...this week is a sketch challenge which I have loved doing...really I enjoy all of the challenges, you know how it is...some cards just are easier to make than others!!! It is also for the OCCC where we are to use our favourite colour combinations, I am using different mixtures of them! I have used a Flourishes sentiment from one of the March New Releases which I was so thrilled to win, along with the other 2 new sets in March. I stamped it onto a Nestie sent to me in a RAK from Kathy (aka Wattle). This is my last round one so I wanted to save it for the right card!
I have sponged the edges of the circle and the squares, also paper piercing around the same. I patterned the outside corner of each square to add some more interest to it.The lower border is torn, sponged and paper pierced to match the squares, then I added chiffon ribbon with a knot added...finally pearls were added along the bottom of the card. this was actually ,very quick to make which is always a good thing!

    I haven't done anything in a while. I think you'll do great because you're a talker. Me, I'm rather reserved!!
