Hello, all!! I hope everyone is enjoying the summer.  Boy is it ever fleeting quickly.  On August 3, the teachers go back to work and a week later school begins.  Where has the summer gone?  One more week of summer bliss and we, the family, plan to make the most of it at the lake!!  I can't wait!!  After being tied down with my injury last summer, I am so thankful I am able to get out this summer.  While I am not 100% and still have limitations, it is so much better than last summer, to God be the Glory!! I am so thankful!!!

Today I am popping in to share a sneak peek for the new upcoming release at ODBD on August 1.  I have combined it with the Shining the Light Anything Goes challenge!

The sneak peak sets include ODBD Boho Faith and Boho Paisley Background (sneak peek) stamp sets that I embossed in white and holographic embossing powder and then use embossing resist with green galore, almost amethyst and bashful blue.  I used the new Stitched Ovals and Ovals dies (sneak peek) to create a shaker card to frame the sentiment. The glittering and sparkling "Faith" is die cut with the sneak peek Faith, Hope, Love die. In addition to the sneak peek dies, I used the Layered Lacey Squares to frame the card, the Decorative Corners, Beautiful Borders, and the Vintage Labels (to coordinate with the oval image in Boho Faith).  The outside border in front of the lacey border is created with the Flourished Star Pattern die.

Gorgeous card Chris! Love the design and the colours are fantastic. Love the shaker part framing the sentiment. Hope you enjoy your last week :-) I've so enjoyed my time with the ODBD team and will miss it greatly! Thanks so much for all your hard work. The August ODBD releases look fantastic - can't wait to get my hands on some and start making some cards (in my new craft room!)
