For my faith perspective card creation I used the Verve Plane Jane Psalm 121:1-2, Verve has lots of scripture stamps, check them out here. I used Prism card stock and Nook & Pantry designer paper. I did a little distressing, stitching, and used the fabulous Organic Flourish Embossing Folder. I ruffled the ribbon and adhered with a Zva Corduroy brad. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge MTSC47, check out her fabulous sketches and play along! The brad, embossing folder and designer paper you can get at Hope Stamps Eternal. This is also for The Pink Elephant Challenge,TPE40; to make a thankful card. I am thankful for my friends and mostly for having the Lord in my life to lift my eyes to for help! Enjoy the rest of the hop!
