And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Buttons and Lace

Hello friends!  I'm hosting the Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers today where I'm challenging everyone to use buttons and lace, faux or real, on card creations for today's gallery.  My sample uses both real lace and buttons along with pearls and a little texture for a vintage style card.

Creative Nugget:  I used the Freshly Made Sketch 174 for the design of my card and used the beautiful Blushing Rose Paper Collection by Our Daily Bread Designs to piece together the card front which was inspired by the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Inspiration Photo.  The designer papers were stitched to Kraft card stock and mounted to a Vintage Cream card base.  A little texture paste was added to the upper right corner.  A piece of lace was woven through the Ornate Hearts die cuts also by ODBD. The sentiment from the Ornate Border Sentiments stamp set was stamped on a Mini Tags die cut in Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Fancy Foliage die cuts, mulberry flowers, pearls, and buttons add to the vintage look of the card.
Here are the supplies from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store that were used to make this card:

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
