SSIC Cracked Roses

It is time for this weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge, this week our hostess is Helen, who has chosen the following scripture:

 "He heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds" (NIV) Psalm 147:3

Helen has challenged us to use something "broken and put back together" on your card.

For my card I have used an image from the JustRite® Papercraft  Shabby Chic Labels Four stamp set, I have cut it out using the Spellbinders Labels Four Nestabilities and the Grand Calibur® Machine.  The image is coated with Dimensional Magic and once dry, placed in the freezer for ten minutes, then carefully cracked and rubbed over using Vintage Photo Distressing Ink to make the image look aged and vintage.
Recycled lace, Seam Binding, a Mulberry Rose and Want2Scrap bling.
This card is for the following challenges:
