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.
