MMSC7 Graceful Peek

Today's card is a sneak peek of the soon to be released 'Grow in Grace' by Our Daily Bread Designs!! This beautiful set and two co-ordinating singles will be available for sale on July 1! I also used this week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.

I started with a base of white cardstock, layered with a mid pink bazzill, light pink bazzill and Basic Grey Porcelain DSP. The rectangular panel is mid pink that has been punched using the EK Success Wave Border Punch on each side. Layered on that is a piece of white that has been embossed with Swiss Dots EF. The Dogwood flowers are from 'Grow with Grace' and have been stamped twice in black and coloured with markers and a blender pen. Both stems were then cut out with scissors and a scalpal (for the small bits), popped on pop dots and put together to make a long strand. The verse is from the same set, stamped in black, cut out with Label 4 Nestabilities and embossed the edge. I glued it to some light pink and carefully hand cut the fine mat around it embellishing with another dogwood flower and a couple of leaves. Finished off with some wide white satin ribbon across the middle, a silver swirl clip with some thinner white satin and a few Snow Kaisercraft pearls.

Can I just agree with everyone else here please - This is just the most beautiful card I've seen for a while.
Just the right number of embellishments - Colours are beautiful- love the sentiment some lucky person will cherish this. I picked up some of this DP a couple of days ago - but I'm going to have to think hard about using it! Sue
