This will be a brief post as life here is somewhat fraught with things medical as well as our DD due to deliver her babe at any time!!
I made this card for a dear friend who loves green - my starting point - and I can always associate roses, lace and pearls with her - so here is my card.
The light today is not the best with the sun playing hide and seek with the clouds, but this is fairly true to the original colours.
I put the green base through the cuttle bug with the Oriental Weave folder - gotta love that texture!! I wanted a specific scripture quote and used the computer to generate this one, (James 5:16b) from the Holman Christian Standard Bible.
I printed it on a thin card, cut it out with a Nestabilities classic oval, embossed it and sponged it with Chalk, Warm Red ink.
I surrounded it with a half wreath of roses from the Layers of Color set Vintage Roses - stamped in black ink and then coloured with chalks and added some Kindy Glitz for a wee bit of sparkle, and mounted this on dimensionals.
The lace is some from my stash, which has been boosted recently from a sale in town :-), and added the half pearls - green on the green card and white on the lace and on the bottom of the scripture feature.
This was then mounted onto the pink base, the edges of which I sponged with the Warm Red ink.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
