My Favorite Stamp Set!

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!  

This is our May challenge--posted by Jackie:

"For God so loved the world; that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

This is my most favorite verse in the Bible. It speaks to me about love...a great love that will never end. How awesome!!! For the month of May; I would like you ladies to create something out of love. Interpret this anyway you can be a fave stamp set; some of your fave embellishments, maybe even a project for a loved one. There's so many possibilities & I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Have fun & Happy Stamping

So--I went with my favorite stamp set ever!  That is Lovely as a Tree by Stampin' Up. I have used it for so many cards and so many seasons--but I really like to emboss the image.  I really like the card when it sparkles, like this one.

CardstockGina K Chocolate, Tan Leather and Grass Green; The Paper Loft Back Country Forest Patterned Paper
