A Joyful Card!

Hello, my friends!
Can you believe it's already Wednesday? This week seems to be passing very quickly! Is it the same for you? I've been very busy with a number of different projects that I will share soon. Today I stopped to make this card for a couple of my favorite challenges!
First of all, Twist of Faith Cards Challenge is having a "shaped card" challenge. I cut my card out of red cardstock in a fishtail banner shape. Then I proceeded to cover it all up with more banners and pennants. You can still see that it's shaped though, right? lol
Secondly, I wanted to participate in Digi Darla's "Take me out to the ball game..." challenge. You're to include a banner, pennant or flag on your project. I think I've got that one covered! I've used a Digi Darla image that I won last week. Isn't he cute? He's called "Blowing Paper Windmill" and he's actually holding a little pinwheel in his hand, and blowing on it.  I took the liberty of replacing it with the little "joy" flag for this card, and decided that he is either singing or whistling!
Thirdly, Word Art Wednesday is always on my link up list! I love to join them!
I had an idea of the Scripture verse I wanted to use on this card but couldn't find anything like it in my files. So I went ahead and made one myself using Psalm 33:3. Isn't it perfect for this card?  Hope you're all having a wonderful week. Perhaps you could all find time to do some singing and/or shouting for JOY! :o)

Here is the Scripture verse I put together in a png file.  
I'm sharing it here in case anyone else would like to take it and use it. 
Please help yourself! Let me know if it works! lol 
 If you make something with it I would love to see it, 
and it would be sweet if you let people know where it came from! :o)

I like this card Nancy! Very clever use of the banner, yep, very clever indeed! I love the way the scallops and banners on the bottom look - I've never seen that done before and it's a fab effect.
