Twist of Faith - Challenge #24

I'm pleased to let you know I've been asked to join the Twist of Faith Challenge. This is my first post with this group of lovely ladies.

This week you can find this challenge at Twist of Faith:

LOVE plus
a scripture, or uplifting verse or positive words of healing, encouragement, or support
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast,
it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking,
it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV ~

One of the most well-known scripture passages about Love is 1 Corinthians 13... today we share a few verses, which of course relate to this week's theme! You are free to use whatever scripture, quote or verse/passage that will suit your creation in our theme.

This week we are sponsored by Michelle Perkett's Studio. You can also find her images in her etsy shop.
I used one of her images to make this card:
I wanted to add an additional sentiment that would say how important love is and why I think Love should surround us, so I used an older acrylic stamp set that I had from Close To My Heart. The statement I added means to me more love and less violence, more love and better health care, more love and stronger families, more love and fewer abortions, more love and more adoptions, more love and better schools, more love and less selfishness and greed.
To make this card I used Bo Bunny (polka dot) and Martha Stewart (pink pattern) designer papers. I added red organdy and both red and clear sparkles. The balloons were colored with Blush and Cranberry alcohol ink markers from CTMH.
Thank you for visiting! May God's love fill your heart to overflowing. May you shower everyone around you with that love, today and every day!
I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Creative Stamp Friends #70 - With Hearts/Valentines Day 
Digi Darla's #49 - Be My Valentine

Welcome to the "My Valentine" Challenge at Craft Your Passion... I especially like the detail of the pearl embellishment as a light spot on the balloons.
Good luck Vickie and I look forward to seeing your creation next week!
