ODBD Sketch 2 - In Our Prayers

Today's card was created using the Sketch Challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs . I found the sketch on Sita's blog.

I started with a cream base and layered with gold and then brown and topped with some of this pretty paper by Paperie (Toile Mocha). Then I took another piece of that same paper flipped it over and used the scallop punch (SU) to to the edge (which you can hardly see now!). For the sentiment, I cut the tag out with Spellbinders 'Ribbon Tag Trio' die, stamped the sentiment from ODBD's 'Flourished Christian Symbols' in gold and attached with some dark cream satin ribbon. The main panel was cut with the Label One Nestabilities however I wanted a finer edge mat, so I glued the cream panel to some brown and cut the layer out with scissors - it was after I'd done it that I realised that I wanted some texture on that panel, so then I embossed both layers with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and added some prima flowers and some pearl centres. The dove also comes from 'Flourished Christian Symbols' - stamped in gold and then embossed in gold and cut out with scissors and a scalpal for those tricky flourish bits (don't look too close I've never used a scalpal before!!!) and popped the entire dove up on pop dots. I figured it needed a little something more, so I added some tiny pearls to the top corners. I really enjoyed the challenge and loved the sketch.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!! :)
