Faith is an important favorite word

This is not the kind of card I usually make, but I am quite happy with the results.
Here is a challenge to use no designer paper, so the panels use the textile CB and repeated stamping of the word "Faith" (ODB):
This calls for a card based on a favorite word:
I based mine on this sketch:
Dry embossing is called for here: 
 I used white and light peach cs.  Some ink is a light coral, and the main image is a light rust.
Stamps are ODB and part of a dollar sentiment stamp - the complete phrase is Just For You but that did not fit on a small oval so I improvised.  The die cuts are Nesties ovals and eyelet circles.  Light coral ribbon is the finishing touch.
