For my creation, I used the Flower Frames 1 stamp set and the Birthday Blessings (image) from Our Daily Bread Designs.



For my creation I also used Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish, lace, and May Arts Mauve silk ribbon, Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles, Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangles, Provocraft Textile embossing folder, and SEI Promise Me.


Here is a photo of the Flower Border stamp set.













For my second creation, I used the Brocade Border Frames and Scripture Collection 5.  The Brocade Border was cut out with the Brocade Border die (custom to ODBD).  The dp is from Basic Grey Porcelain and Kaiser Craft English Rose Garden.  The spellbinders used to frame the Brocade Border layer is Labels 16.  The Ribbon is May Arts White Satin Ribbon.


Here is a photo of the Brocade Border Stamp set:




I hope you have enjoyed my creation.  The next step on the hop is the ever so talented Grace!!

Two lovely cards. That first one really grabs my attention with the flourish die, black frame and oh so lovely pink bow. Fab how you have colored the flowers. The second - love the green you have chosen with the pink, and the oval over the border is a great idea. As usual some real eye candy :) Hugs.

These cards are amazing! I really love the first card. The colors are stunning together! The Flower Border looks so amazing in the black ink with the pearls in the flowers. Your lace and bow are perfect with those die cuts...love how they intertwine. Your coloring is perfect, Chris.

The second card has wonderful dp, I especially love the bird cage paper. The black and white borders really POP again...and draw my eye to Jeremiah 33:3...beautiful! I love how your bows are always so perfect, Chris!

I pray all is well with you! Thanks for sharing both samples!
