Two roads

There's a new challenge up and running over on the Lollipop Ladies blog.  The theme is Star Lollies with the optional challenge of sparkle and here is the inspiration photo:
And here is my project:
Do you know how hard it is to find a baptism image that is not for babies??!!!  A young lady at our church is getting baptized this Sunday (as Baptists, we don't practice infant baptism; instead we practice believer's baptism and it is a choice taken to show your willingness to follow Jesus Christ) and of course I needed to make a card.  After searching with Google (usually a life saver) to no avail, I discovered this sentiment in my stamp collection.  Though it is definitely NOT designed for baptism, it still fits, because choosing to follow Christ is not the popular road these days.  So, I found it to be very fitting.
To go with the star theme, you can see I chose papers with subtle star details and added a few die cut stars.  The aqua stars and covered with glitter and I detailed the red stars on the papers with glitter pen which you cannot see in the photo.  Come on over and play with the Lollipop Ladies.  We can only give out the prize if at least 7 people play and right now we have only 2 entries.
