Good morning sweet friends! Thanks for stopping by and thank you so much for your kind words. You have no idea how much you lift me up . . . as I read through comments over the past couple of days I want you to know how much you bless me. Some days I do struggle for inspiration but once I see my friends here, that struggle melts away. If I’ve been able to inspire you it is but a small token for all I that receive in return. If you don’t comment, never worry about that, you bless me nonetheless. Thus the inspiration for my card today, I hope you are blessed every day and in all you do. I wanted a crisp clean, framed arrangement all of one color. I hunted through my sentiment stash for God Bless You and found it among my Wordsworth stamps!
Here’s how I made it – step by step:
Start out with a card base that measures 5-3/8″ wide – 6-1/2″ tall. Cut a panel 4-1/4″ – 5-5/8″ and cut/emboss 2 of Spellbinders Fancy Weave – cut Fancy Weave on each long side and apply to the back of the cut panel to make a border – patch any gaps with the second Fancy Weave then apply ribbon and adhere panel to base with foam tape. Next cut/emboss Spellbinders Matting Basics A #5 and #7 at the same time. Cut/emboss two Spellbinders Garden Weave and adhere to the back of frame created with Matting Basics then adhere the grouping to the card base using double foam tape. Cut/emboss small oval from Spellbinders Elegant Oval and stamp sentiment – adhere to base using a triple layer of foam tape.
|CRAFT SUPPLIES I USED|

Ink: Versamark, Fresh Ink – Chocolate
Accessories: Spellbinders Fancy Weave, Spellbinders Matting Basics A, Spellbinders Garden Weave, Spellbinders Elegant Oval, gold embossing powder, May Arts Silk Ribbon, Gold Rimmed Pearl Brad (Michaels), Grand Calibur Die Cut Machine

Question Parking Lot
Carole Thrasher on Comment #41 asked why sometimes the link does lead to the correct item *lately*. Carole, thank you so much for pointing this out to me . . . I would be totally lost if you all weren’t my eyes and ears. To be totally honest the error in linking was just an over sight. I had started copying links and editing their destination instead of typing them by scratch – it takes a while to get things linked up but it sounds like I have to go back to the old way. Gonna go back over the last two weeks of posts to make sure they are all correct. So sorry for the frustration, sweet friend. In the meantime, thanks for pointing this out to me and if you ever find an incorrect link, please don’t hesitate to drop me a line through the contact tab at the top of the blog so I can make the correction. I’d sure rather know :-)
Edited to add: Oh Carole, I went back and did have to change about 5 or 6 links to point to the correct product, arrrggh!!! Thank you. I always appreciate the friend that will let me know my slip is hanging or if I have something in my teeth. That’s exactly what you did :-)
WoW! This is stunning , again you make such stunning cards, so elegant and delicate I just love it. THANK YOU for all your inspiration you give to us, I am sure everyone else, like me, are inspired by your creativity.
I love how you put different dies together, they always seem to work and then there are those gorgeous bows of yours, they always complete the card.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Love & Hugs

Beautiful as always. Thank you for sharing.
Sooooo beautiful as usual Becca, you just know how to make them sooo romantic and stylish, sooooo beautiful hun.
Becca, your cards are always so beautiful, but I think this may be one of my favorites! There is something SO elegant about an all white or all cream card. I just love this!
what a beautiful card – so simple and elegant. You are truly inspired and we are blessed to see your creations.
Don’t ever lose heart.
Love, love, love it! To me there is nothing prettier than white on white or cream on cream. Bless you my friend. Feel like I have known you all my life.
Hi becca. Seeing your cards…I feel at peace and each one of them are a master piece. You are truly my idol.
Your card is beautiful as always. I love how you put it together and used only one color cardstock. This may seem out of line but I would like to know if you would consider making a stamp that says “we love you”? I don’t have a problem finding stamps such as “Love You” or “I Love You” but what happened to “WE Love You”. I want to send cards to family members from both of us. Thanks.
YOUR card is stunning Becca. Love the design.
So lovely ,crisp and fresh, i just love it Becca .

Much love xx
Its 9.30 pm on the Longest Day….I have the Front door open and listening to a Blackbird singing…and of course I am commenting on the Blog too!
Today’s card is truly Inspirational Becca…. absolutely beautiful!
Your layering has always been fabulous and classic.
Absolutely perfect for me to make for a friend who is moving far away.
Stunning….I’m not that has not been commenting lately (time) but I enjoy all the amazingly beautiful cards you made. I always think “this time she’s outdone herself’ until I see the next card. I don’t know how you come up with all the elegant designs and think of so many exciting ways to use the spellbinders together as you do. Blessings to you. Hugs & TFS
S-W-O-O-N! Love everything about this card!

Thank you so much
Gorgeous, gorgeous, card. I can see using it for so many reasons. I love cards like that. You did an amazing job, and you always make it sound so easy. Love it, just love it.
This would also make a beautiful wedding card by changing the sentiment. Very elegant.
Stunning design! Crisp but soft & elegant in its simplistic monochromatic design. Thank you for the inspiration.
This card is beautiful!! Your step by step instructions are great. Keep them coming! I Love It!
A compliment for you: Some people (me) are inspired by others and some people (you) are the inspiration that inspires us with your creativity, imagination and talent. Every time I receive your email I unknowingly take a deep breath with anticipation to see what you are unveiling to the world now. Your very existence is a blessing to all who enjoy and appreciate your work. Have a great day!
Oooh sooo lovely. TFS, always an inspiration. Thank you
Life gets so busy sometimes that we don’t always take time to do the most important things!
Thank you for your lovely blog, thank you for the inspiration you give in your lovely cards . Thank you for the pleasure you give to others.
Today’s card is beautiful and such a lovely sentiment for the recipient of such a card to receive.
God Bless you too, in all you do.
Thanks for being a blessing to others.
Very pretty. The tone on tone combination is simply perfection. Appreciate your fantastic cards; thank you for sharing. Blessings!
Becca, That is beautiful. You sure do a good job of making cards.
I love every one of your cards. Even when you use colors I don’t like the card is beautiful.
OO! monochrome / white is always soo pretty! lovely work you clever lady!

I have a file on my computer that is just for inspiration. It’s mostly Becca cards! Just added another! Thank you!
Gorgeous creamy loveliness today, Becca. This is a fabulous card and if you end up sending it to someone it will bless them as much as it does me!!
And God bless you, too, Becca :)
Hi Becca! Love your card. I’m a big fan of cream on cream. So clean and elegant. Just beautiful!! Loves, Ruthie
Pure class – love it – re my comment on your previous post yes I would obviously love a video on using the Krylon pen when you get a few spare mins – ha! Thanks for your wonderful blog – its a highlight of my day when I see there is a new posting on it.
Absolutely gorgeous Becca. You certainly inspire me to make cards as all yours are stunning and I now buy some dies just because you have showcased them to demonstrate just how beautiful they can be. I always buy your new dies straight away so would love you to design some more please. Hope you have a lovely day
Hey Becca – I love this card! Your ability to layer different pieces is such an inspiration to help stretch me into getting more creative at layering and to try different things. Thanks for all you do
I have never left a comment before but I really do love your cards, I wish I had the inspiration that you do. Sometimes my cards turn out okay but they never look as good as yours. I will keep on trying, Ann x
Thanks Becca for another beautiful card. Your designs are always classy, never over the top, and beautifully balanced. You also share tips that carry over to other cards–like adjusting a die cut to suit non-standard measurements, combining previous dies to new ones, unique placement of embellishments. I love your professional guidelines but even more I appreciate your spiritual encouragement and positive attitude. Each day I look forward to new postings but never tire of going back into your archives for fresh ideas and uplifting thoughts.
Hi Becca, ‘Bless You’ too. As always, your card today is stunning, stunning, stunning !!
Lots of love from Patricia xx
I love your work. God has really given you a way that touch my heart . You give your talent for greating to us all. O by the way I live in South Africa. Claudene
This would be a wonderful Wedding Card Becca! (I’ve had weddings on the brain lately—-3 these past few weeks!) LOL But, your card is wonderful!!!! Love how you have that swirly part coming out of the frame! FABULOUS JOB! :D Quite ELEGANT!
Becca, I’ve been watching your card making ideas for a long time now–maybe 3years. They are always wonderful!!
However, fairly often, when you list the Spellbinders components that you use, when I click on the link to see what the die looks like, it brings up a completely different die. For instance the “Garden Weave” when clicked on shows “Tranquil Moments”. It’s a bit frustrating– just wondered if you knew what was up with this?
Thanks for all your sharing!! Carole
Your card is stunning love to come and see your creations
They are all Wonderful.
Love Marion x
Simply stunning! TFS!
Thanks for blessing us with your designs. I feel like my day has been made better when I see something that you create! And I like your tone on tone stuff the best, but haven’t been able to really make it work for me. Thank you for sharing.
Hi Becca. Simply gorgeous card : ) Take care.
Hi Becca, the Lord has blessed you with incredible talents. Thank you for being true to His word through your faithful discipleship and for sharing this blessing with friends around the world. Warm wishes from South Africa xxxx
Good morning Becca,
A beautiful card yet again and so crisp and clean looking but also has that soft look being made in the ivory cream with the soft filigree tendrils trying to escape from under the framework. Thank you Becca for the inspiration that you bring with each and every card or item you make, it is so much loved,
Love and crafty hugs

I love all of your beautiful creations, however, I love you most for the sweet Holy Spirit that dwells inside of you. God has certainly blessed you beyond the normal with talent to create. I’m always excited each time I receive one of your emails that direct me to the latest thing God chose you to create. I thank Him and you for blessing me this day.
Kitts Hill, OH
You humble me with your inspiration and talent. Never doubt that people adore your masterpieces especially me who has not got an artistic cell in my brain. Your hard work inspires us all. x
Good morning dear Becca,
Please can i ask how you managed to get the gold on the edge of your beautiful roses? The latest card that you have made with the fine gold enhancements is just stunning on the Friend Who Understands card of the 23rd and i have fallen in love with the roses (which i can make) and their gold edging.
Many thanks flower
Love and crafty hugs
