I’d Rather . . .

Hi there, I’m actually back with a card.  I’ve been taking it easy for the past couple of days.  Injury to both of my shoulders finally sent me to the doctor and I had my first physical therapy this week.  Ugh, enough of that – I’ll be fine.  Today I’m using one of the new Our Daily Bread Design sets called Light – from the Full of Grace Collection  – I think this is my most favorite set this month.

I added a piece of soft vellum edged with Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Border Petites over a piece French Vanilla Bazzill.  On top of that I popped up another French Vanilla panel cut with Spellbinders Curved Rectangles and stamped with the sentiment from Light.  I crossed the panel with a line of pearls, wide lace and satin ribbon before I anchored my rose.  I tucked the swirl from Spellbinders Fanciful Holiday under the rose for leaves.
Sigh . . . pink.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs – Light (Full of Grace Collection)
Paper:  Anna Griffin, The Paper Company – Vellum, Bazzill – French Vanilla
Ink:  Color Box Chalk Ink – Pink Rouge
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ Classic Scalloped Border Petites, Spellbinders™ Curved Rectangles, Spellbinders™ Fanciful Holiday, pearls, May Arts Satin Ribbon, lace

Have a great weekend everybody!

    I never think to use my sewing lace for cards, probably because it’s hidden behind cabinet doors. Perhaps I’ll write myself a note to consider using some of it! Lovely card, as always.ReplyCancel

    This is lovely! Where did you get the rose? Or did you make it? I thought you might have made it since it’s not listed in your supplies … :)ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca – stunning as usual. That rose is absolutely beautiful – how did you make it… are you going to do or have you done a tutorial on it?

    I hope your shoulders are soon feeling easier. I have a lot of aches in my left side as i had major surgery a few months ago – I had to have a thoracotomy to remove a tumor from my pleural cavity (pressed against my lung) and i’m still off work from it – loads of nerve damage and now having a treatment on it by way of a cream with chillies in – apparently the chemicals from the chillies confuses the nerve endings… crafting is painful most of the time so can only do little and often.

    Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations.

    I always hold my breath as your site opens, and often end up going “Wow!” when it opens. This is a Wow! day. This is beautiful. When I add layers, it looks like I added layers. With you, it’s part of a cohesive whole that looks destined, rather than constructed. Wow!ReplyCancel
