let your faith...

Hey friends!!  Happy Memorial Day weekend to everyone here in the US!  Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.  My niece is here visiting from California and I should get to see her tomorrow!!  YAY!!!  I received some happy mail today in the form of some yummy new Reverse Confetti stamp sets and a die.  I have been waiting on them as I really wanted to use one of the sets to make a card for the May Reverse Confetti Sketch for You to Try.  I'm also posting this to the current Word Art Wednesday challenge (anything goes - family friendly... I think this is a pretty family friendly sentiment!).  The set I was waiting on is the newly released set called God is Good.  When I saw God is Good and the beautiful sentiments in the set I just had to have it.   In addition to my Reverse Confetti "happy mail" I also got some lovely new Stampin Up! products and I used one of the paper stacks I got for my card.  The banners and the main panels were die cut using the RC Confetti Cuts Tag Me and Love Notes.  After trimming down the two little banners and adhering them to the card front.  I added a little button and twine embellishment.   I used the sentiment "Let your faith be bigger than your fear" and stamped it in VersaFine black on the white panel.  I don't know about you, but there are times when I need to let my faith be bigger than my fear and will admit that it can be hard to do that because I think it is in our nature to worry.   But once I let go of the fear and just let God handle things everything works out so much better!!


Thanks for stopping by...

Another great example of how to use printed papers on a card--you're so good at it, Rosemary! Love the sentiment & your button embellishment & the flag slightly tilted! Enjoy seeing your niece & have a great weekend!
