CFC92 and LIM 110: Valentine Card from Bible passage

Hi all,

It's been a while since I've uploaded my last posting on this blog.
I was simply too busy to find crafting times. 
The time I save for cardmaking is so precious to me. When I make cards I am able to be rejuvenated from any stresses at work, to meet my creative spirits, and to be connected to other souls who seek for aspiration and inspiration. I believe crafting time provides me an optimal soothing (and at the same time an optimal challenging) space for my soul. :)  

I was a bit driven by a spirutal mood today so the card I made seemed to be drawn to the mood. 

This card is for Valentine's Day. For the background, I used a paint splatter image stamp from Gourmet rubber stamps. And the message stamp is from clear dollar stamp which I think a genius idea. What a creative person who designs this kind of stamp! Don't you agree with me on this? This stamp is amazing that you could find an encoding message, Valentine from the Bible verse, John 3:16. 

I entered this card into the challenge #92: wallpaper at Cas-ual Fridays.  
They asked us to create my own CAS background with stamping.
I lately added this card to the challenge at Less is More
For this week's challenge is about One layer + Spots and Stripes.
This card might not show dots and stripes directly but  
I would rather take the challenge on in an abstract way.
So the dots in my card are not a perfect circle but I could say 
the dots expressed in splattery painting images. 
Then, where are stripes? Could we consider the sentiment as stripes?
Each line of Bible words looked like a stripe to me.
(You could see at least one vertical line of stripe, VALENTINE 
which I highlighted with w1 copic marker) hehe! :)
Hope my way of taking on it will be acceptable.  

After seeing all design teams' samples, the irregular pattern I created for the background is concerning me a little bit. Hope the irregularity on the card is acceptable. :)
* I also entered this card in Word Art Wednesday Challenge #69: Anything Goes.

Thanks for drop-by. Hope you enjoy my card and get a little bit of inspiration.
