Sabrina, I can see why you could not decide which card to post for this challenge. They are both beautiful! I love the scriptures that you used, the colors and I love the dies that you used. I love visiting your blog each week. It is always a pleasure to see what you have created.

I hope that you have a blessed weekend too. :)
