Here is my creation using the fun and beautiful Faith set from Our Daily Bread Designs and some dp I found in my stash.  Sure wish I knew the name of it since I love it and would love to get more. LOL! The image is framed with silver baubles and the Lacey Circles and Standard Circles die from spellbinders.  The punch is a Shell Border punch from Martha Stewart.  The top pink ribbon is velvet  from Making Memories as is the stitched ribbon.  The white ribbon is May Arts Silk.  The lace is lace I just bought from Joann's.  Time to make another stop there. LOL!
