Faith As A Mustard Seed

Hi, everyone!  Today I am playing along with the Featured Stamper Challenge #300 over at Splitcoast, along with a few other challenges.  This week's featured artist is Jen Mitchell......I had a blast cruising through her gallery and chose this beautiful card since I had never used this type of design before.  I needed to make an uplifting card for a young man (16) who is going through treatments for lung cancer.....the "Keep Climbing" set by Our Daily Bread designs was first to come to mind when I heard about Kevin through a stamping friend.

I will also be submitting to the following challenges as well:
The Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast yesterday was to choose any item from Artful Home.....I chose this powerful photograph for my inspiration.
The ODBD Shining the Light Challenge this week is to create a masculine project.

WOW Angie! I love the masculine feel to this card. The plaid, sketch like image and paper piercing make this a jewel. I'm sure this will be an encouragement to this young man! Lung cancer at 16??? Praying... Hugs and blessings...
