Twist of Faith #31 - New Life

I hope you had a lovely Easter weekend. This week at Twist of Faith our challenge theme is:
NEW LIFE!
(Think Spring, New Baby, or a renewal for you!)

Your creation should also include a scripture,
uplifting verse or positive words/quote
 
Our Sponsor is  Michelle Perkett Studio. I used one of her "girly" images called "Rose" because she reminds me of one of my granddaughters.
 
 
I thought I was using this sketch from I(heart)sketches #12. After I made the card and came to my larger computer screen I saw the lines on the left that didn't show up when I was making it in the other room. But I still want to give them credit. Both of the pink rose papers were from Graphic 45's "Little Darlings." The pink cardstocks are current, but the gingham ribbon is retired, all from Close To My Heart. I used Spellbinder's Nestabilities Scalloped and Floral Ovals for the die cuts. The roses and the green polka dotted designer paper are from my stash.
 
 
I chose a Scripture verse I love for the sentiment. What a joy and blessing to know that Christ takes away to old habits and sins and makes us new again. This will be an important message for me to pass along to my granddaughter. I typed the word art and saved it as a jpg file if you'd like to have it. Just click on it to make it larger, then right click to do a "save as." You'll probably have to resize it to fit your creation.
 
 
Thank you for visiting. I'd love to see your creations showing New Life: Spring, New Baby, or Renewal at Twist of Faith.
