Card Patterns 160 ~ Grace ~

Today I have a sketch card for you. I decided to play along with this week's Card Patterns sketch shown here...

By the time I was finished with it... let's just say I think I turned the sketch on it's head... oh, well... Sometimes the creative process is REALLY creative! lol...

The base is plain black card stock upon which I placed a new paper from Pink Paislee's London Market collection. I used Our Daily Bread Designs' Scripture Collection 8 for my scripture stamp. The next two layers, black card stock and a coordinating DP print from the London Market Set were cut with graduated sized Spellbinder Classic Oval Small Dies. I distressed the black card stock with a Tonic distressing tool before nesting it over the scripture focal panel with dimensional foam. The lace is actually a discounted lace collar from the beading section of Michaels cut down for my design. A Cheery Lynn Dies Fanciful Flourish (My Mind's Eye Breeze Collection) adds some color along with mulberry pink roses and a few leaf punches. I found an old jet flourish in my stash and placed it on the bottom corner for interest. For a final touch, I coated the scripture panel with Ranger's Distress Paint in Clear Rock Candy. If you look closely it gives it a nice old glass look... Thanks for stopping by and until next time... blessings...
