Be still and know...

It is time for Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time Challenge(SNTODBD18)! The assignment is ODBD stamps. Cheryl Walker is our challenge hostess this time. Cheryl is challenging us to ribbons and lace! When you think of ribbon and lace you are not just limited to the fabrics. If you have die cuts, punches, or even stamps that have a ribbon or lace look, name, or design, those can work, too. However, you do have to use both! We would love to see what you create using Our Daily Bread Design stamps!

I used this week's Midnight Madness Sketch for my card. I used this month's new Our Daily Bread designs releases Brocade Background and Brocade Borders. I also used an older set, Scripture Collection 3 for my verse, which I just love. I wanted to show that lots of verses will fit in these frames, not just the ones from this month's release. I LOVE this brocade backgrounder and these frames!!! For my card I started with a base of Sahara Sand and then stamped on a peachy pink solid page from BasicGrey's Cappella pack with Sahara Sand ink and the brocade background stamp. My flower is made with a combination of elements using scraps from the Cappella pack and the T Holtz big flower die cut, and the daisy shape from my Cricut "In my Garden" cartridge. I also sewed up a lace ringlet for the flower and adhered it all with a big vintage looking brad. My ribbon is May Arts Silk (yummy) and the lace is from my stash. The pearls are ZVA Creative.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT Samples this week! They are truly stunning! Thanks Cheryl for a great challenge!!!

Grace, are you trying to win every week??? This is SO GORGEOUS as are all of your creations. I just can't believe my eyes every time. I should be used to it by now, but I never do get used to it. I'm always thrilled to look at your work!! Great job on the MMSC.

Gorgeous card, Grace! I adore the Border corners!

Traci S. said...

Dear Grace~

What a wonderful card! I love the lace in the bg, and that flower is so beautiful! I wish you could show us how you made it!

That is one of my all time favorite verses. I learned it at a very young age...and have always known that it was true. I love the beautiful brocade frame you put around it with the ODBD Frame and Scripture. Great idea to show that it works around the larger Scriptures, too.

You are such a dynamic woman, artist, and Child of God.

He IS Able,
Traci S.
