Grow in Grace Porter Inspired

Good morning!!!! Today's inspiration is the work of Tracy Porter. She has some really beautiful things on her website! I was inspired by this! I started by stamping Baroque Motif and highlighting with a white gel pen and then cutting out the bird shape with the Spellbinders Nested Bird. Then I stamped the dogwood flowers from the Grow in Grace set from Our Daily Bread designs, and sponged them with Regal Rose. Then I cut them out and sponged Rose Red and Chocolate Chip along the edges. The leaves are die cut from a SU! die and sponged. I punched the other little flowers, and the butterflies, and the flower center circles. The background is embossed with a cuttlebug folder, and I used my scor-pal for the lattice edge. The ribbon is SU! Always Artichoke. The sentiment is cut out with Spellbinders Labels Trio die and held into place with one of the little flourishes from the Floral Accents SB set. I added Glossy accents to the flowers and leaves, and pretty blue rhinestones to finish the card! This is an unusual color combo don't you think? The artichoke tones down the brightness of the turquoise, which really appeals to me. I used the SU! color wheel to come up with that! I hope ya'll have a wonderful weekend! I'm going to a family reunion today and am looking forward to it! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a stunning card! You did a marvelous job with attention to all details! I love this card. How did you combine both the lattice and the other cuttlebugged image on one sheet of cardstock? Inquiring minds would like to know...
