The Lord Sustains Me - Customer Favorites release!

Fancy-tag-collage

 Hello my blogging friends!  I am FINALLY home!  It seems like I've been gone forever and even though I had created lots of cards to post in my absence, I really missed getting around to see all your creations and I look forward to getting caught up!

Today I am excited to be sharing a Scripture verse from the Our Daily Bread designs Second Customer Favorites set, Scripture Series 2, as well as a matching frame set, Scrolly Borders!  There are some wonderful verses in this set!!!  I chose SU! Blushing Bride for my base and BasicGrey Curio for my designer paper.  The paper is a  pretty collage of gorgeous elements that I didn't want to cover, so I did very little layering with this card.  I stamped the sentiment and frame on Gina K cs and colored the frame with Copic R11 and G82.  I cut two Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two from Papertrey Chocolate cs, cut and adhered to the back to frame the image still more.  I used my finger to rub  some metallic gilding  onto the frame to age it and give it more depth.  Unfortunately it doesn't show well in the photo.  I used some real old seam binding and sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist, wrinkled and dried before making my bow.  I added a single Wild Orchid rose and some Recollections pearls.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Craft Us Crazy - Anything goes in August, Paper Crafting Journey - 2 Anything Goes, Shelly's Images -Show Us what you got (anything goes,) Stamp Insanity -Anything goes, Stampin' B's - JFF - Distressing (distress inks around edges and gilding on frame),Kelley Kid's -  pink and brown, Paper and Such Design Sentiment Only, Try It On Tuesday - Anything Goes, Paper Take Weekly - Bingo* (center down)

Thanks for having a look!  Have a blessed week!
hugs,
