count your blessings....

hello friends!  i have another card i made using one of the newly released set from Our Daily Bread Design.  i made this card using the current ISpy sketch... a lovely sketch with many possiblities. 


 

i went with a rustic sort of look and used a kraft, cream and mustard yellow color combo.  i embossed the kraft cardstock using a new stampin up! embossing folder, woodgrain.  after embossing the cardstock i swiped on some cream pigment ink to bring out the woodgrain a bit more.  the wreath image was stamped using kraft ink for a soft look and a bit of old paper ink was used to distress the edges.  the sentiment was stamped using more mustard ink and then cut out using a small spellbinders plain circle die. this was matted using additional more mustard cardstock.  finished off the card with some twine and a mustard colored button tied with additional twine. 

thanks for stopping by... please make sure you check out the new releases and the brand new ODBD webstore!

supplies:  cardstock:  su! more mustard & crumb cake, pti cream; stamps:  ODBD pumpkin wreath; ink:  su! more mustard & crumb cake; twine:  may arts; button:  my minds eye

Hi Rosemary,

Love your pretty and simple design and the sentiment is one very dear to my heart - Living in the Moment!

Hope you have a great weekend,

Blessings, Barb

Oh my goodness! The look you achieved for the wreath is incredible! I love soft, but have trouble getting the image to show & here it's perfect! Gotta remember this sketch, too--think it may help my mojo which seems lacking right now.
