MMSC55 and a Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well! My Grandkids went home yesterday and I spent today trying to get caught up with some projects. This card is a sneak peek at two of the new Our Daily Bread designs sets to be released on June 1st! I'm so excited about these sets! You do not want to miss the Blog Hop on June 1st!

I used this week's Midnight Madness Sketch for my layout. My base is Blush Blossom and then Papertrey Vintage Cream which I embossed with the Cuttlebug and lightly sponged the embossed areas with Blush Blossom. My lacing elements are triangles cut out to expose the base, then laced with gold cord from my stash.

My image is from the soon to be released Our Daily Bread designs set "From Me To You". I LOVE Fuschia and have been having so much fun coloring this image.... but for this card I simply embossed it in gold and then painted it with Opal Shimmerz. I wish that showed up in the photo, but it doesn't. The verse is from a "surprise" set to be released on the first as well!!!! That's all I'm going to say for now! You'll have to check back then to find out more about it! I embossed on Blush Blossom CS and then matted that on more cream. I cut out part of the image for more interest. I added wide lace and some gold lace by Webster's Pages.

I am linking this to the following challenges:
ABC Challenge - Vintage
Crafty Creations - Favorite Stamp (This is a new favorite for sure!!!)
Quixotic Challenge - Emboss It

If you haven't checked out the Blogaversary Party going on at Midnight Madness, you might have missed that there is a special award (The Priscilla Award) being given away to one person who will be voted on by YOU! I am blessed to be one of the 20 finalists selected by the DT from among the Gold Star Winners this past year, but now the voting is up to how many friends you can get to vote for you. Well.... I have lots of friends but not too many blog! LOL! If you would like to check out the contestants and place your ONE vote for your choice... please see this post. Of course I'd love to have your vote, but also be sure to sign up for the HUGE giveaway going on for this one more week!

Thank you so much for looking and I love knowing you were here! Have a blessed week!

Grace that is gorgeous, I really like the muted tones, that stamp looks marvelous in a single color, its a nice way to show it off without having to color it all in.

Grace this is just gorgeous. I love the colors you chose and how you carried the color of the stamped image with that piece of lace that matches so well. The embossing adds interest and elegance.
