I also used Brocade Borders (both the square frame and the straight element for the mat layer) and I used the Brocade Border Die Cut. These borders are so pretty and right now, they all are on SALE! Be sure to check out the Store for the sale prices! It's a great time to pick them up!

Here are the supplies I used:

ATD Pastel Green Card Stock, The Paper Co. Heavy textured Gold, Prima Fairy Flora designer paper, THoltz Distress Ink in Antique Linen, SU! Wild Wasabi, Memento Rich Cocoa, Copics to color frame, Martha Stewart Lg Branch Punch, Spellbinders Lattice Pendant, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Butterflies from the Bridal Dept of Michaels about a year ago, Pearls and Crystals from my stash, Gold thread, tiny punched butterflies left from an MS edge punch.

Before I send you on your way, I want to let you know that we Do have One more exciting way you can win during this Special Anniversary Celebration! It's ODBD's second CUSTOMER FAVORITES CONTEST!

We will be taking submissions of favorite verses for a card until Mar. 31, 11:59pm eastern. There is a special post on the ODBD Blog and a special link to it in the right side bar so you can easily find it through the rest of this month.

Traci S. said...

Oh, Dear Grace, This Scripture is just what I need to meditate on right now in my life. I love how you have framed the Verse. I really like this shade of green...it is wonderful. I love it with the gold. It is so elegant! Your butterfly on the bottom of the card is so delicate looking and adds to the elegance of the card. I always am amazed by your perfect bows! This one is wonderful...and I really like the beautiful touch of the leaves across the bottom of the card. Perhaps it is an olive branch offered in peace? You always put so many wonderful touches on your projects. This one is especially important to me.

Thank you for sharing it with us!
