CCT 144 and SNTODBD24 It Will Be Given

I used the sketch for this week's Cute Card Thursday as the basis of my SNTODBD24 card using scripture as the focal point.

Here's the sketch for week 144 and my card.

I was originally going to use ivory ribbon with a gold edge and the creamy patterned dp in the Basic Grey "Jovial" pad, but I went a complete 180 and used the dark papers from Basic Grey's "Curio" instead.   I hadn't cut into that pad yet, and I've been wanting to use it!  I had to add the bow as that upper left hand corner was just so bare, and I thought my card felt unbalanced without it.

The scripture is from ODBD's "Scripture Collection 4."  I sponged it (heavily!) with mostly Vintage Photo Distress Ink and a little bit of Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I used Nesties to cut the circle and scalloped frame.

The seam binding is from MS as is the leaf punch.  The big crocheted flower is by Prima.  I really have to start making my own crocheted flowers one of these days as I was a bit sticker shocked when I was in Archiver's (although they were just gorgeous, I must say!).  The little roses are either Prima or Recollections.  I used a MS leaf punch for the smaller leaves and the larger one was in a tin of purchased flowers.

On the inside, I sponged around the edges a bit since I had to trim some of the dp to fit my card.  I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the dp panel edges and Vintage Photo Distress Ink on the white piece.

Thanks for stopping by!
