Here are the details of my card above:

I used the new set called Pray.  
This is the third set Kelley has created for the Full of Grace Collection.
I stamped the sentiment with Stazon Brown ink and cut it out with a Spellbinders Oval 
and layered it with a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval. 
I used SU! Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.  The designer paper is by Anna Griffin.
I fussy cut parts of the designer paper to frame the ovals 
and then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Kassie's folder. 
I sponged it with Tim Holtz Antique Linen ink too.
  I added some pretty seam binding and made the bow with my Bow Easy.  Finally, 
I completed the card with pearls, a flower and some Martha butterflies!

And here is one more:

I made this one with three of the new sets!
The Wood Background, Pray and Randi's Song.
I used SU! Really Rust, Chocolate Chip and Kraft cardstocks and Neenah Cream Cardstock.
The Wood Background layer is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sponged with
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. I also used Stazon Brown, Pumpkin Pie, Mellow Moss,
and Always Artichoke inks.  And I sprayed the card with Suede, Creme de Chocolat,
and Brick Glimmer Mists.  I followed the Midnight Madness sketch for this week. 


Thank you so much for letting me share with you today!  Hope you enjoyed it!
From here, hop on over to the amazing Angella’s blog!  I know you will not be disappointed!

  79. Wow! Sandee, you have made 2 incredible pieces of art to share with us! I love both of the cards. The first one is so bright, and full of life...and the message is loud and clear! I love all of the details!

    The second card is fabulous, too! I love how it is depicting a tree...or that's how I see it, the trunk the leaves...when I am outside, on the ocean, on a trail in the woods, looking at glaciers...I feel closest to our Awesome God. This would be a perfect message...if it was needed in writing in a place as beautiful as that! The sheer bow is wonderful.

    I really LOVE these cards!
