The Peace of God

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's sketch at The Sweet Stop, SSS39!! Today's sketch is a Sketch With A Twist! The twist is that you can ONLY use a sentiment on your card! This was fun!!

For my card, I used this GORGEOUS scripture from Faith & Hope by Taylored Expressions. It reads: "The peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ". Isn't that just gorgeous???

I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto a piece of patterned paper from Bella Rose and cut it out with Labels 9 Nestabilities. I sponged the edges while the paper was still in the die with Memento Angel Pink.

I used a different pattern from Bella Rose for the main panel of my card, and I dressed up the top and bottom edges with some Intense Pink Prism Cardstock. I created a border using my fab new Apron Lace Punch by Fiskars and I added pearls to the top and bottom panels, as well as on the top and bottom of the scripture. I finished off my card with a double ribbon of Whisper White Organdy and Raspberry Twill.

You can see what the Sugar Babies have created with this sketch right here!!
