It's a Grace CASE!!!!
This week's Shining the Light Challenge on the ODBD blog is to use your sentiment or verse as the focal point. Woo hoo....no problemo!!! I'm so blessed to have so many ODBD stamps to choose from for this!!
This week's Case Artist Saturday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts is to re-create an item from Grace Nywening's awesome gallery!! Congrats, Grace!!!! Grace is not only an amazing paper-crafter, and my DT sister at Our Daily Bread designs, but she is truly an inspiration to Christian women everywhere!! Grace is the real deal and I love her dearly!!! Check out Grace's blog HERE, her gallery at CPC HERE or her Splitcoast Gallery HERE. I chose this gorgeous card to case....it's not easy to duplicate her works of art, but I gave it my best shot!!!
I am also using Jen's Color Monday Challenge, to use the Shabby Chic colors of either pink & brown or blue & brown....since this will be a graduation card for my brother's girlfriend, I will be using her fave color....blue!!! And this is the second card this week for the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge...the theme is "The Path".
Also, over at Splitcoast, the Inspiration Challenge is to choose a pic from Amy Atlas Events for your inspiration.....I chose this awesome dessert table.....the blues and browns just made me "ooh" and "aah"!!! Also at Splitcoast, the Free4All Challenge yesterday was to use buttons and bows!
Earlier this week I posted a wedding card which I made while doing the Product Review on Prima Flowers for Our Daily Bread designs. I explained how I de-constructed some of the "Alabaster Round Petal" flowers in order to use the small buds. The photo below shows one complete flower, one after the center bud was "extracted", and the small flower is one layer of the de-constructed flower cut apart and glued back together with a smaller diameter. I covered the center with a button for my card above. With a little thought, see how these flowers can be used in many different ways?
Other supplies used for the card sample: "Path of Life" stamp set by Our Daily Bread designs, Memory Box "Frond" designer paper, Spellbinders Square Nestabilities, Circle Nestabilities, and Labels Three. The button is Basic Grey, the gingham ribbon is by Ribbon FX by Hobby Lobby, the suede ribbon leaves are by May Arts, and there is lots of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist for a grand finale!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!! Stay tuned next week for sneak peeks on the upcoming releases from Our Daily Bread designs.....you're gonna love 'em!!! Have a very blessed weekend!!
