Guide us to they perfect light!

ODBD stamps: Perfect Light, dies: Christmas Candles, Merry Mosaics, Peaceful Poinsettias, Mini Tags, Fancy Foliage; Designed by Grace Nywening

 Hello friends!  I hope you are all doing well!  I apologize this post did not go up as the set time and I was not home to check it yesterday.  I have been diagnosed with breast cancer and have been running constantly it seems to Drs. to get a treatment plan together.  I would truly appreciate your prayers in the months ahead!!! 

With that said, here is my post a day late for the look back post.


Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs Oct. Mid Release. 

I created this card using the new sentiment set, Perfect Light, as well as the most awesome new dies: Christmas Candles  and Merry Mosaics.  

I started with a cranberry base.  On that I layered brushed gold paper, followed by a patterned paper from the ODBD Christmas Card Collection 2015.  I used the Layered Lacey Squares dies to cut my main image panel from some marbled yellow card stock from my stash.  I embossed it in the die and sponged the edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.  I die cut the awesome Christmas Candles from brushed gold, removing all the inside parts and using just the outline.  I adhered this to my yellow panel, and matted this panel with more cranberry and brushed gold.  To embellish I cut two Peaceful Poinsettias sizes from different paper, and one brushed gold Merry Mosaics for each of the three flowers.  I used the pale yellow, sponged with cranberry, some scraps from the Christmas Paper Collection 2015 for the lower layers, and topped with brushed gold.  I added some brushed gold holly leaves from the same set, and a Fancy Foliage die cut from brushed gold.  To make the Fancy Foliage flourish look Christmasy, I used some of the gold holly leaves I had removed from my Candle die and adhered them over the regular leaves that are on the flourish.    I stamped the sentiment on yellow and die cut with one of the Mini Tags Dies. I added a sheer gold ribbon and bow and some pretty cranberry half pearls to finish.  I love the vintage feel to this card and it really went together pretty quickly! 

Here are the NEW products I used on this card:

Precious Grace, I love your card and the beautiful papers and how you've used the new dies! It's stunning with the floral array and the ribbon and especially that fabulous sentiment! I can only imagine how busy yesterday was, and Walt and I are continuing to pray for you fervently these next months (and moment by moment) as God is leading you on a new journey that is a big challenge. We are praying for wisdom for all the doctors and those who will attend to you and especially pray for great peace, comfort, strength, and confidence in the Father Whose hands all passes through to us. I know that you and Al both are seeking His comfort and wisdom as to the treatment plan. Know that you are dearly loved and prayed for, sweet and dear friend! Tender hugs!

Gorgeous card Grace. Sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Will keep you in my prayers. Another lady at our church has been going through treatments for breast cancer also. She has been a trooper and is doing well.
God Bless.

Amazing and beautiful. The Lord sure is working thru your creativity. I will add you to my prayer list. May God bless you and keep you strong. I think God is telling me to share info that you may find helpful. I have listened to some music that is suppose to help heal and comfort and bring you closer to God. ? just a thought and figured it may help considering what you are going thru. the website is Wholetones.com and there is a free shipping code if you decide you might like to try it 'free88' I have purchased it and got a set for a dear friend of mine who just lost her mom. The creator of this music is a Christian and believes God gave him this gift. I hope I am not being to naive but had listened to it on website before but have just decided to give it a try. It does have a complete money back guarantee, so I'm giving it a try. I just somehow felt I should share it with you.
Have a blessed day,
Peggy

A gorgeous Christmas card Grace. Elegant in every way.

I could not sleep and felt I should comment for some reason. Now I know why. I put your name in my "One Day At A Time" prayer log book. It is prayed over daily. I will send your prayer request to our local prayer group with your permission.

Love, Hugs and Blessings

Grace, your card is gorgeous and all your creative work is a testament to the glory of God. I know you are in His hands, and he will walk through this process with you. I pray for courage and strength in the days ahead, for deep discernment and wisdom with the decisions, hope and healing for your body and mind...and perfect rest in Him. None of this can do it alone, lean on your family and friends. I know you will.
