Faith card for the 'Reason'



*Click on any images to enlarge*
 Wow...Talking about entering a challenge on the 11th hour!! :o)
I really wanted to make a new card for the recent 'Jesus is the Reason' hop ,
but time was against me and didn't get to show a new card then.
Well, I hope I reedemed myself by finally making a new Faith card,  in fact it's just out of the 'press' so-to-speak...most likely the stickles are still wet!  LOL

I intend to link it to my dear friend Catherine's 'Reason' challenge.
See her fantastic blog and what's all about,here:

This is a beautiful card. I love the image. The stars with the buttons are perfect and the dove in the top star is stunning.

Oh Temptress! This card is gorgeous! I love the non-traditional color palette you chose, and all of the special details - the stars, the wrapped panel, the distressing, the lovely dove, and the reason for it all - your beautiful image!! I'm hoping your Christmas is filled with love and many blessings, and I'm thankful to count *you* among the special blessings in my life! {{HUG}}
