In God We Still Trust

 A closeer look at the image.

 My die cut roses.
 The inside of my card.
 
Every time I look at this image I am reminded of swimming at our local pool as a child. I had long, long hair and was required to wear a bathing hat. Those days they were a tight rubber thing with a strap that went under your chin. Because I had such long hair it did not lay nice and flat but rather had lots of wrinkles. I was so happy when my mom bought me one that had a big 'rubber' flower on the side. I thought it was quite fetching. LOL! Does anyone else remember wearing those silly things? 
On to my card! I colored the image with Copics. I used a C.C. Design die for the lace. (I think this is one of my favorites.) The rose die cut is from Frantic Stamper. I used the positive and negative on each side of the card. I popped the rose with foam squares. The pretty accents by the sentiments were recycled from a store bought birthday card. (Love to recycle!) I also added a satin ribbon for a pretty pop of color. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: (Diamond Rio)

You place your hand on His Bible, when you swear to tell the Truth
His name is on our greatest Monuments, and all our money too,
And when we Pledge allegiance, there's no doubt where we stand,
There is no separation, we're one Nation under Him.
In God We Still Trust
Here in America
He's the one we turn to every time
The goin' gets rough
He is the source of all our Strength
The One who watches over us
Here in America
In God We Still Trust
Now there are those among us, who want to push Him out,
And erase His name from everything, this country's all about,
From the Schoolhouse to the Courthouse, they're Silencing His Word,
Now it's time for all Believers, to make our Voices heard.
In God We Still Trust,
Here in America
He's the one we turn to every time
The goin' gets rough
He is the source of all our Strength
The One who watches over us
Here in America
In God We Still Trust
