ODBD Scripture & Anniversary Celebration!!

Hi Everyone - welcome to ODBD's Scripture Blog Hop!!  I love this time of year at ODBD, because it means we're celebrating an Anniversary - and one of the ways we celebrate is by using an ODBD scripture on our projects.  This year we're celebrating with Two Bloghops - the first is today, where we're sharing cards and projects using ODBD's wonderful Scripture sets.  The next is on 17th, which is our official Anniversary Celebration!  And you know - there will be PRIZES.  You can find more details about the prizes further down in this post.

My card is made using ODBD's Scripture Collection 11.  This set has four beautiful stamps, and for this card I chose Psalm 145:18.  My card also features our new Shabby Rose Collection papers.  To make this card I started by creating a layout/sketch.  Next I created the card base and curvy border layers and went to work on the scripture panel.

The Lord is Near - Close-up

After that panel was stamped and die-cut I started on the flowers and flourishes.  I used some pre-made paper roses from my stash along with some die-cut and punched flowers.  I started with the paper roses and removed all the leaves on the underside of the flowers.  They were different greens and much too dark for my project.  Next I determined placement of the flourishes and glued those down, then added the paper roses and die-cut/punched smaller flowers.

Here's another view:

The Lord is Near - Alt View

Last steps were die-cutting/sponging the tiny leaves, placing those all around the flowers, and adding the linen thread bow and die-cut cross at the top.  I also added little dots of liquid pearls to the flower centers.

Here's one more photo:

The Lord is Near

I absolutely love how pretty and feminine this card looks with these beautiful shabby rose papers.  I hope you like it too!
