The Lord Sustains Me - Customer Favorites release!
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!
