Don't Worry Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since my last post! I have been away and had the last several posts prescheduled, but getting home again and working on DT requirements for NEXT week when I will have my family here has kept me busy with things I couldn't show you quite yet! I am thrilled today however to be able to share with you a sneak peek at a new Our Daily Bread designs set by Dina Kowl that will be released on Aug. 1. It's called "Don't Worry". I love this set and I believe you will too! Since one of my besetting sins is anxiety.... this set has verses that speak directly to me! I love this quote from Corrie Ten Boom.... it's so true!!!

I stamped my image which is 2 flowers, then masked and added a third with Memento on Neenah, then colored with Copics. My frame is made with the Spellbinder's Lotus Blossom die cut edgeability and cut to fit. My sketch is this week's Midnight Madness Sketch#63. For my butterfly I stamped it once on my main panel and then again, cutting out just the front wing and popping it up. After coloring with Copics I painted with Shimmerz Candlelight for a shimmer.

Card Details:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread desings "Don't Worry"
Paper: Bazzill base, Stamping Station (dotted light blue), Memory Box Frond (green), Francis Meyer (dark blue)
Accessories: SB Lotus Blossom die cut borderability, Sheer ribbon, EK Success edge punch, Blue bling and butterfly charm from Hobby Lobby

I am linking this to the following challenges:
Midnight Madness
Practical Scrappers- my ribbon and bling are over a year old
Stampavie - anything goes
Paper Play - blue, cream + one
Mami Doodles - anything goes
Additionally I am adding this to the following Dirty Girl challenges which I am late to start, but here goes:

DTGD10notimetostamp Passionate for Patterns 3 patterned papers used
DTGD10cindy_haffner Dies and Punches SB die, EK Success punch

DTGD10kittie747 Lost and Found (Shimmerz was almost dried up, bling and charm are ancient!)

Thanks so much for looking and have a most blessed weekend! I hope to see you Sunday for another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge with something a little different for you!

Hi Grace~

What an amazing piece of art! The sentiment resonates deeply within me. I think you have framed is so beautifully. I love the colors in your beautiful flowers! That butterfly looks as if it just landed on that paper for a moment. I love your little geometric flowers in the corners.

Absolutely stunning card! I have only one wish..when you state MS punch or Nestability, could you let us know which one? They are so beautiful and being a beginner, I would love to make at least 1 card as beautiful as yours.
