Fight the Good Fight of Faith

In an effort to use up some scraps of pattern paper, I created the background for this card using the Collaged Circles Technique from the August Technique Junkie Newsletter.  I added some distressing to the circles and edges then sponged on some Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

The image and sentiment are from Our Daily Bread Designs Not Forgotten set.  The image is stamped in Black, then colored with Gamsol and colored pencils.
