I would like to share with you a card that I made for my Priest, Father Zanek.  He is celebrating his 15th year as a priest. I wanted the card to be special and knowing my talent or lack of---I decided to get my inspiration from the best. So, over I went to Becca Feeken's blog: http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/
She has amazing cards, altered projects and great tips of all sorts.  She also designs for : http://www.ourdailybreaddesigns.com/   I looked at her cards ( as well as other people) and I fell in love with this card by Becca: http://www.amazingpapergrace.com/an-example-you-should-follow/#.  She made this card in October 2008.  I did get Becca's permission to case her card too. So, I changed my card around a bit--didn't want to give him a bow ---I hope you like how it came out.  To be honest, I am happy with it. I do not know how Becca did the punching of the cross--I tried so may times and couldn't get it --mine would be to close to the next cross or wouldn't punch through the cardstock correctly.  My husband, Wayne finally took pity on me and did it for me!! Yeah and thanks Wayne.  I got him to punch out 2 more that I put away for another time :)
Anyway, here is the card:  You can click on any image to enlarge


I didn't have the right size punch or nestie for the saying, so I have the Cross Shapeabilities from spellbinders that I used in the center. I also used one of the larger ones on the inside.
Inside of the card:

and I close up of the saying:


I did the cracked glass technique on the oval.
And the last picture is of the larger Cross from the shapeabilities--I put a piece of cheese cloth behind the cross and popped it up with a dimensional.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful week.
