For my card, I decided to do an Easel Card design, and I'm spotlighting three different stamp sets.  The small single cross I used on the background and behind the quote on the top is from Antique Label Designs, and the quote is from one of the 5th Anniversary release, Quote Collection 3.   The Scripture on the "inside" is from Scripture Collection 11, and  used Flower Border for my sentiment.  This border is one of my favorites, and it is made to perfectly fit Spellbinders Labels 18.

I cut my "inside" verse with ODBD's Custom Antique Labels & Border die.  The lattice trim is from SB Lace Doily Motifs and Accents.

My designer paper is Websters Pages Ladies & Gents/ Trendsetters pack.  I stamped with Memento ink and colored with Copics.  I added seam binding and  pearls to finish it off pretty simply.
