Vintage Village

I'm really diggin' vintage lately...well let me rephrase that, lol...I've always LOVED vintage and dabbled in it but never really did a lot of it.  Well TLC's new Vintage Village Backgrounds set is changing that for me -YAY!  I absolutely adore this new image of a Vintage Cathedral Window that Paulette has created!  You can find this image and the rest of the set here.  Originally, I had envisioned doing some stained glass in all different gem colors, but found this picture online which really spoke to me and used it as my inspiration:

 And here is my card:

Such a stunning image, right?!!!  The amazing word art reads, "Truth -Tests Remind Us Trust Him" (which is a gentle reminder for me!), and is from TLC as well!  The image was colored in Copics (E50, E00, E31 and E57) and then distressed along with the sentiment in Making Memories Distress Ink. 

As always, I love your visits and thank you for each and every comment that you take the time to leave me :)  

Hope the rest of your weekend is a good one!!!
