ODBDSLC27 & SNTODBD19 plus a Waltzingmouse

Two cards, again, today.  The cards are for two Our Daily Bread Designs challenges:  ODBDSLC27 and SNTODBD19 and for the current Waltzingmouse sketch challenge, WMS#12.

First up is my card for ODBDSLC27 and a challenge to use texture.  I had just recently gotten a new embossing folder from Stampin Up! called Elegant Lines and I dearly wanted to use it.  I cut a piece of My Minds Eye patterned paper (it is from one of their now retired lines, but not sure which one) to fit the card front, placed it in the folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  Then I did a bit of distressing with a distressing tool and added some Ranger Distress ink - Tea Dye.  I die cut the Vintage Cream & SU! Blush Blossom cardstock using a Spellbinder Labels 4 die, distressing each with some Tea Dye ink.  The cross from the ODBD set Cross of Christ was stamped in Ranger Distress Ink Tattered Rose and then the sentiment from Lift Up Our Hands in Memento Rich Cocoa.  Some cream silk ribbon and a few pearls finished the card.

The second card is for SNTODBD19 and uses WMS#12 for the layout.  This time I used another new embossing folder from Sizzix.  This one is from the set called "Hello Friend".  I have seen numerous beautiful cards made using this folder and finally got my hands on one.  After embossing the Spring Rain cardstock I added small light blue rhinestones to the card.  I die cut the label using my Cuttlebug & Spellbinders Labels 10 die.  The frame is from the Waltzingmouse Stamp set Very Vintage Labels 10.  The sentiment is from the ODBD set Don't Worry.  Rounding it all out is the little bird from the Hero Arts cling set Two Birds, as part of the challenge for SNTODBD19 was to have a bird on the card.   It took me FOREVER to tie the bow and get it close to right.  My next crafting purchase is going to be a Bow Easy! 

Thanks for taking a peek... have a wonderful day!

These are so pretty, Rosie! I love the soft peach tones on the first one, and the embossing is so elegant on the blue card! Love 'em both!

I can't choose WHICH one I like best - it's a complete and total tie! But speaking of TIES... NO one ties a bow like MY Rosebud! So if you must buy a bow-tie-ing thingy, go ahead, but I think you do one FABULOUS job! Both of these breath taking cards are wonderful - I love when you tap into the spiritual and uplifting - you are SO gifted!
