Grace

"My chains are gone, I've been set free, my God my Saviour has ransomed me
and like a flood His mercy reigns, unending love, Amazing Grace"  - Chris Tomlin


LOVE that song.  Check out my inspiration link too:  Floral Bliss from a great site called Echo.  It's such a beautiful room. 

This design really came about because of these gorgeous papers.  I haven't used them in so long, but they're really so lovely, and the texture really adds something to the design.  I colored the Cross and dove from the Confirmation set with Copic Markers to mirror the colors in the paper, I like how the Baja blue with the deep brown of the cross. 



The Sentiment is actually just a part of Confirmation and  Baptism Verses, I took the word Grace from one of the verses and inked it with a Chocolate Chip marker in the center of the Fancy Tags die. 

Thanks for stopping by again today....see you soon!

Your colors are so beautiful in this card. So soft and peaceful. The lattice spellbinder is very pretty. Now I need the stamp set and the spellbinder lattice. :)
