Choose Faith

Hello, it's Bridget here today to share a card made with one of the fantastic July release sets - Celebrate Today!
Once again, Korin has come up with some meaningful sentiments which are 
perfect for creating encouraging cards. 
As I was making this card, these words became a prayer....Lord, help me to choose faith over worry. This past year I've been so worried about a loved one and choosing to believe that God is good, loving and is hearing my prayers has been an act of faith - I'm sure many of you can identify.
I colored the flower stamps with Stampin Up Markers before spraying with 
water and stamping on watercolor paper for a misty effect. 
I then spritzed with Shabby Shutters Distress Stain.
Though I used a red marker it seemed to end up an almost watermelon shade of pink red, 
so I made a quick change of plan and used that shade of
 cardstock for the embossed panel (Sizzix Plaid).
The ribbon is woven through a die-cut using  Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Lacey Eyelet Border die
 I made this card before I'd received the new Doily Border dies, other wise I'd have had a hard decision about which of these fabulous dies to go with!
Thanks for stopping by today!
