Card Positioning System Challenge

This is the first time I have made a card for this challenge. I love the sketch CPS has for their challenge and know that I will use it again and again. I have this old stamp of praying hands that is one of my tried and true favorites. I have no idea who it is made by other than it says Chesapeake, VA. It is so well used the rubber keeps peeling from the wood block and I keep glueing it back. LOL I think it might be time to look for a new one!
I loved making this card. It really spoke to my heart and just seemed to fall into place for me.
I have used background paper from Funky Fairy Paper Crafts. I printed the Lord's Prayer on regular card stock using Bible Script Font in lightened black. Then inked the whole thing with Jumbo Java Brilliance. On either side of the prayer I stamped a swirl with same ink. (I don't know the stamp name for the swirl, dumb me, didn't save the packaging). I stamped the praying hands onto acetate using Stazon Black adhered it over the prayer using brown brads from my stash. The ribbons are from my stash along with the gold angel charm and gold flower center. The flowers are prima, brights. I glittered the center brad which is also from my stash
