Marcia, Patti and I ~ A Challenge Among Friends

It's that time once again when Marcia, Patti and I post this months challenge.
Patti challenged us to use PTI's Spring / Winter Woods, Forget-Me-Not and Inspired sets.

Card #1
"Faith" is cut from gold card stock.  I also used Hero Arts Music Background stamp and Santa's Book by Precious Marieke and a spattering of gold sequins.

I veered a little from using just sentiments from the "Inspired" series, since I only have the one set, "Inspired ~ Faith", so I used a sentiment from "A Cheerful Heart".

And then my dear friend Marcia took pity on me and sent me some of her dies and sentiments to use.  She sent me Praise, Grace and Blessed.  She sent me Faith too, but I already have that but that's ok.  I'll have dies and sentiments ready to use when needed.  Thanks Marcia!!  You're a sweetie!!  

Be sure to visit Marcia's and Patti's blogs to see their amazing works of art!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings~ Birgit
