The Fullness Of His Grace

I had so much fun this weekend with my friends at the scrapbook store.  We spent 3 days and two nights visiting and creating.  We also made some great new friends who were sharing the cottage with us.

I have one more card to post today.  Our Daily Bread Designs has a sketch challenge and I found some lovely paper from Fab Scraps that I thought would be perfect.  One side was floral and the other side with a simple pattern.  I used both sides, layered on distressed and inked pieces of two colors of Bazill.  I stamped the verse from ODBD’s Scripture Series 2 on cream cardstock and die cut it with Spellbinders’ circle die.  I layered this on a lacy die cut created with the Crocheted Circle stamp and the coordinating Crocheted Circle Die  from ODBD.

I distressed and inked all the layer edges and colored the seam binding ribbon with Distress Ink.  The little flowers are from Petaloo.  I added a lacy border and greenery using Cheery Lynn Designs Dancing Doily Lace Border and Japanese Garden Lace Oval dies.

Hope you have a wonderful week.
