DCBD #127



Hello everyone. I hope this has been a very pleasant and uplifting week for all of you. I am sure some of you have had some craziness. That is life though, isn't it? Even in all of this God is good.
This weeks card sketch was fun for me. I decided to make this a double challenge though. I missed color sketch 124. I really wanted to do that sketch, but my kids were here and I felt spending as much time with them was more important than trying to get the sketch done. I also decided that this card was going to be made for my younger daughter. She and her boyfriend got engaged this past week. Yeah! I want to send them this card to congratulate them. I don't think people send very many cards for this occasion and decided I wanted to. Tell me what you think of the finished results.
Remember to take the time to visit the Diva Coffee Break Designs blog to see what all of the other Diva's came up with for this challenge. If you aren't a Diva and play along with us please make sure you let all of us know so we can see your creation too. There is a link called Mister Linky at the bottom of the featured Diva's. Sign up there.
These are the supplies I used for this card. Everything is Stampin' Up! products.
Card stock: whisper white, very vanilla, going gray, basic black, DSP basic gray from Hostess pack, and vellum cardstock
Stamp sets: love you much and God's beauty
Markers: pumpkin pie, basic black, and garden green
Ink pad: StazOn black
Tools: paper piercing tool, scallop edge punch, and sizzix texturz plate flourish
Accessories: circle rhinestone brad (fire) and black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
Thanks once again for taking the time to look at my blog. Have a wonderful week!!
