The Restless Sea Around Me

Good morning to you!  Happy President's Day!  I am enjoying a beautiful day off!!!  And what do I do on my day off?  Duh!!!  LOL!!!  I made this card for the Midnight Madness #91 sketch and the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge #76 to use green.  I used a beautiful sentiment from the Anchor set released this month by Our Daily Bread designs and also one of the little Fleur de Lis borders! **And look!  This is a sneak peek of a new and beautiful die that Spellbinders created just for Our Daily Bread designs!  How cool is that?!!!  And just wait because, ODBD has a stamp set coming out very soon to coordinate with this die set!  You are gonna love it!!!**  For my background, I ran the Core'dinations card stock through my cuttlebug with the ODBD Fish embossing plate and sanded it to show the green core.   I used the copic air compressor thing to get the green inside the die.  My first time trying it, and I didn't do that great of a job.  I used an EKSuccess border punch for the lacy border at the bottom.  The seam binding is SU! and the snip of lace is from my stash.  I added tons of Zva pearl swirls as well as Zva green pearls for accents! Thanks for stopping by and see you again soon!!!

  7. Absolutely lovely. That frame is very pretty and the pearls and the way you placed them are just so reminiscent of a seabed. An air compressor . . . I've used those to shoot roofing nails, does that count??? LOL! Thanks for coming alongside us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!
