Shabby Tea Room and Flourishes Challenge Cards

There is something so comforting and homey about quilts...and I was inspired immediately upon viewing this photograph which was the inspiration for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.
I also am entering this as my submission for Flourishe's weekly challenge to go "vintage."
I used Webster's Pages as the backdrop of my card. It framed the scripture well, and in order to make the frame work, I sliced the paper in half lengthwise and used ribbon to hide that. The pattern on the sides matched up well. I antiqued these white prima roses using distress inks.
This card was made for a young woman who was baptized at our church last weekend. I was so moved at her testimony of Christ and the deep desire and commitment she had to follow him that I wanted to send her a card in celebration of her baptism. Hearing others talk of their stories of faith always strengthens my own.
Thank you for stopping by this Sunday, and hope you have a blessed week!
