Verve Psalm 19:14 Card

This is my second card playing with the new stamps I won from Verve Stamps during the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Sprig Blog Hop. Thanks, Julee! They stamp beautifully!
This time I followed the second April sketch over at Viva La Verve but kept to the colors from the inspiration challenge on the Verve blog again. I love these cheerful spring colors!
I used a 5x7 inch card base and scored it using my Ultimate Crafter's Companion. The score lines don't show up very well in the photo, but they add a nice touch that's more noticeable in person. 
I die cut some papers from PTI, Richard Garay and some gold foil from Spellbinders for the elements on this card. I used Gina Marie Designs stitched rounded rectangle and lacey doily dies and stamped the verse on white cardstock. I adhered all the elements with glue tape except for the verse panel which I popped up with foam squares. Since Gina is a friend of mine, I'd like to give you the link to her online store where you can buy either of these sets for only $10. She has lots of wonderful dies at really reasonable prices.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
