Faux Silk Technique

Good Morning all, The card today was inspired by the Faux Silk Technique over at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog.  You can find a wonderful tutorial there also and can find here.  I have done this technique before, but bought this stamp set quite a while ago and just wanted to use it.  I knew it would be worth when I finally found the perfect technique of sketch.  Well I used this sketch from Card Patterns and it just worked out wonderfully!  Now here is the card!

This stamp is called Children of God.  The actual sentiment says Blessings to you and your new baby, but I wanted to use it for a friend of mine.  So I used a marker and colored the stamp to say what you see above!  How cool is that?

Here is a side view of the card!

And of course the inside where I used one of the verses that come with the stamp!

I just love this verse.  How great indeed is the Love that our Father has for us and if we have received Him as Lord and Savior, we are His children!  Also linking this to the Little Birdie Blessings Scripture Thursday Link up!
