Take Me To The Cross

I just had to have another play with this darling stamp from Krista Smith! I was playing around with my merge feature, I am still not proficient with it yet, but each time a learn a little more. I saw a darling card that my sweet friend Amanda made and so I had to give it a go creating a scene. I loved the colors in this DP which I don't have the cover to any longer, so I can't tell you from whince it came! I also used a faux stitching tape. It was a bit hard to line up, but I covered my 'jigs and jags' with a little cut out heart from the DP. I used a Magnolia Do-Hickey Die for the lace and added a lovely pink polk-a-dot ribbon to finish off my card.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:
My Song : By Al Denson's "Take Me To The Cross"
She's daddy's little girl
Only three years old
All dressed up in her Sunday clothes
He holds her hand on bended knee
He says "I need to show you how
To find your way home."
As they walk along, how sweet the sound
Church bells ringing, people gathered 'round
"Remember this church, and the cross 'way up there
Sweetheart, if you ever get lost, say...."
Take me to the cross
High upon the steeple
The one where Jesus died
For all the lost people
If you can't find home
Know you're not alone
Take me to the cross



beautiful card - I love your colours
