Keep The Faith and My 1000th Post!

Yippee! This is my 100th post and because i have  over 200, 000 blog hits i will be putting a little Candy Giveaway on my blog tomorrow to celebrate! So come back tomorrow to check it out!
Oops! I meant 1000th post!
Today i thought i would try something different!
I made a base card and embossed with my new Crafters Companion Die-sire Embossalicious butterfly folder.  I then embossed a piece of card with the same folder but inked it up with TH Distress Ink in 'Peacock Feathers'. I made a frame by using 2 dies from my new Marianne D's 'Parchment' die set and layed that over tha top. I added a sentiment cut with my Spellbinders 'Hearts Circles' die and added some gems and ribbon from my stash. 
The sentiment reads, 
Faith
Therefore being justified by faith,
we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:1
I don't normally make cards like this so i hope you like it!
