I created this card using Week 1 of the January Viva la Verve sketches. All the edges have been sponged with Ranger Distress inks and I stitched the panels onto the dp before attaching it to the card base.
I used a small square punch to make the fishtail effect on the sentiment banner. This ribbon frays badly when it's cut at an angle so I sealed the ends with a lit match. Yeah, I know, it's living dangerously, but I've gotten pretty good at holding it just in the right spot so it doesn't actually burn the ribbon!
My card is for a good friend who is trying to overcome a fear but feels it's nearly impossible. Recently this Bible verse has become very meaningful to her and it's on the inside of the card, hence the two heart pins to represent God's love:
"Perfect love casts out fear..." I John 4:18
So with God's love and help I know she'll triumph over fear!
