Confirmation card

I made this card recently at the request of my sister, who had been asked to be a sponsor for a teenage girl who was being confirmed.  The theme of the confirmation was "Include God in your Dreams" so I was asked if I could incorporate that phrase somehow.  That almost had me defeated!  I knew I wanted to create word art but I didn't know how, until I saw this blog which showed how to use Picasa to do more than just store & edit photos.

I printed the word art then filled some of the spaces in the letters with a Sakura Stardust pen in silver.  With that done, finishing the card was easy - a dove cut on my Craft Robo Lite, some elegant Pink Petticoat backing paper layered onto satin paper & flat-backed jewels to finish.
