SSIC A Touch of Heaven

It is Sunday and that means it is time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - it is always so inspiring to see all of the entries each week - we appreciate seeing your works of art and the heart!   This week the hostess is one of our new Sistah's Diane, who had chosen:

 “Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”  Isaiah 40:26

Diane has challenged us to create a card that depicts any element of heaven—angels, music, clouds, sun, stars, blue, glitter, bling, etc.

My image is from Crafty Secrets (how adorable is it!) and has been layered onto a Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Nestibilities that has been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.  I have added some Seam Binding, a lace bow and a mulberry flower and of course some gorgeous Want2Scrap - Beautiful Bling Borders-Endless Waves! by Nina Brackett

This card is for the following challenges:
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Wedding (or Love)
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Any sentiment
Charisma Cardz - Bling
It's All About the Vintage - Weddings
Southern GirlsDie-cut or punch
