Great strength comes from faith in God

Another free stamp set! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a Elisabeth Bell stamp set with a craft magazine.
I just love Elisabeth's drawings, so whimsical. I had to buy the magazine as I needed these 3 stamps in my collection.
Here is the first card I made and I dug out my Copics again to colour.
Paper: Crate paper by American Crafts with the Paper Hearts collection.
Card: American Crafts and Royal Langnickel.
Punches and dies: Martha Stewart, Magnolia Doohickey, Spellbinders, Woodware inverted corner punch
The inside of the card holds the sentiment. Not stamped this time, but just a sticker from a collection pack.
Ribbon rosette made with blue Paperchase ribbon, folded in two and stitched along the length of the edge, then the ribbon can be gathered (pulled) into a rosette shape,
The whole image has been sprayed with Glimmer Mist to give it some shine factor.
