Vintage Chic "FAITH" Banner Tutorial

Hello Friends!!
I finally have a new camera..and have had some time to do a little creating!  I have a banner that I have started that I would like to share with you today.  I am using Digital paper from Gecko Galz, and one I created in GIMP myself and embellishments from
Here is the first Banner.
I just love how it turned out.  It will spell "FAITH" when it is finished.  I just have to wait to get a few more chandelier drops :0)
I did finish the letter "A" banner as well.  Here it is below.
I used the Make the cut program and Inkscape as well as GIMP to create my shapes, and then cut them out with my Black Cat Cougar.
I just love it!!  Here is a close up of the bottom.
I just love the Crystal chandelier drops!!  So beautiful!
Here is a photo of the two of them together below.
