Because of Your LovingKindness

I love this verse and I really like the font and arrangement of the lines in this Verve stamp.

I looked and looked through my stamps and digitals trying to find an image of arms raised to the sky but could not find or think of any I have.  Then I remembered this digital image by Clearly Digital Stamps of praying hands. That will work.  I made the image faint so I could stamp the verse on top, masked the hands so I could sponge on a little Blush ink.
The Timeless Amour Collection by Heartfelt Creations has such gorgeous patterned paper.  I used a piece for the main background, fussy cutting three of the flowers and adding them to the lower left corner.  I used the backside of this double sided paper to cut out the frame with two ovals by Spellbinder and the leaves with a die by CherryLynn.
I distressed the edges, added a little Clear Star Sakura ink to the printed flowers, and added a few pink gems.
