I used my brand new ODBD Cross of Christ set for both of today's cards. Funny story about that stamp set. It took a vacation to Hawaii before coming to Oregon (wish I could have gone with it). Couldn't figure out why it hadn't arrived and when Kelley tracked it, it was in Honolulu. It arrive last weekend, tanned and relaxed, and I introduced it to some ink last night : ) ! Great stamp set designed by one of our DT members, Dina...you can read all her and this fantastic stamp set plus see the other new releases right HERE!! This card is for a sweet lady whose husband went home to heaven a few days ago. I'm playing piano at his memorial service later today. I wanted to make her an extra special card, and these colors and embelishments all reminded me of her. I used yesterday's sketch challenge at SCS (SC186). I used some of the Prism Silver Metallic cardstock and ran it through my cuttlebug with the textiles ef. That cardstock is fantastic, and it embosses beautifullly too!! I pulled some white scalloped ribbon out of my stash...have no idea where I got it but it was perfect for this card. See, that's why a girl can never have too much ribbon, ya just never know what you're gonna need : ) ! I used some tiny crystals on the cross and slightly larger ones on the corners of the card and on the flower. They just don't photograph well, but irl, they have the most amazing sparkle (I got mine at Walmart in the craft/jewelery making department).
