Totally Sentimental

I am back with my cards for this weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge, this weeks challenge is brought to us by Candace.


 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Proverbs 30:5

Candace has challenged us to use a sentiment only - no images!

My sentiment is from my stash and is actually a sticker, I have glad to have finally been able to use it.  I have added a frame over the top that was sent as part of a RAK

A Seam Binding bow and gorgeous Want2Scrap

A simple card, but a lot of fun to create.

This card is for the following challenges:
Avadares – Anything for August
Charisma Cardz - Monochrome
Do You Stack Up?Buttons
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes 
Craft Your Days Away  - Anything Goes 
Craftymess – Words
