This card was made with a beautiful stamp set from Sweet -n Sassy stamps, called Elegant Blessings. I used Versamark, and PearlEx for the cross, and added the rhinestones for some sparkle and bling. The sketch is one of the challenges from a previous SCS sketch challenge. I used Stampin' Up! cardstock, and the beautiful DP is from K&Co. The edges of the image and DP were sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo. What a wonderful theme for a blog hop! Praise the Lord indeed for fabulous friends of faith! I know I have met some very special and faithful people through my blogging experience, and those friendships continue to grow! I've been truly blessed with wonderful friends of faith! May you be blessed on this glorious day too!
