Our Hope

Our-Hope


Hello everyone!
I hope you all had a chance to do the ODBD Blog hop yesterday! There were some incredible projects shown with this month's release! Today I have another sample for you that I made for the SCS Sketch challenge. I used the new Anchor set and this yummy designer paper is K&Co Julianne on a base of SU! River Rock. The flower is a gift from a dear friend, the butterfly is Prima, and the lace and tulle are from my stash. The Spellbinders is Label Fourteen.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T. - in the roll of a die (use die cut)
Paper Play - stamp it out (use a stamp)
ABC Challenge - "N" is for nesties
Sisterhood of Crafters - anything goes
Anything Goes - butterflies
Paper Take Weekly - anything goes, optional: flowers
Magical Mondays - Flowers
Gingerloft- Things that fly (butterfly)
Let's Ink It Up - NO DIGI and Anything Goes
Stamping Vacation - Paper that resembles Material (Damask)
Stamptacular Sunday (must stamp) - Whateva'!
Crazy 4 Challenges - Vintage or Shabby Chic

I have to have everything you used on this card! Absolutely amazing. Have to have that stamp set. When I had to tell my dad about the doctors prognosis that he didn't have long to live, my dad's response was, "So be it. My anchor holds." I must have this stamp set.

Ah, such a beauty! I could gaze upon it for a long time as it's so lovely, like a garden in the Spring!

Grace said...

Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments on this card... and many have asked for the designer paper name. It is a new 6 x 6 K & Co pack Michaels carries... called Julianne. There are however more than one pad with this name. This is the 48 sheet pack with a brown dp on the front, with a cut out revealing a yellow floral trim. I have searched both pads for more identifying names and they both say Julianne... but the other one is 96 sheets and does not have any of the embossed or glittered pages. That's about all I can tell you! They both are gorgeous packs! Hope this helps!

Dear Grace,

True beauty in these words, and in this delicate and feminine card!

I just love the papers with the lace. And, that beautiful flower and butterfly add such a graceful touch.

Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful piece. It would be incredible if it were hung in a guest room or something like that.
