My new stamps

I am super excited. With my birthday coming up, my mom sent me some money to buy a set of stamps. I have had my eye on the JOYFUL NOISE set at Layers of Color, since it was released. It finally came today. I used the butterfly from the set and embossed it in gold. I made this card for my good friend Andrea, who had a birthday yesterday. I tried to use colors from her living room on the card. I also tried to make it with a romantic style, which is what she likes. I added faux pearls on the pane and at the bottom as the stops for the easel style card. I made hand made roses with rust colored paper. I wasn't sure how I would like the rust colored flowers, but I really like how they turned out. I added faux stitching around the panel for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge to add stitching to our projects. I love this scripture and hope that it will be an encouragement to my friend as well.
