ODBDSLC46, C4C72 Faith...and more!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Hope you all get to enjoy your weekend to the fullest!!! Our girls are playing in some basketball tournaments this morning and in the afternoon Mimi is invited to one of her girlfriends birthday parties! It's at our local pottery place and I'm actually very excited we are going there, because the last time we went I made some earrings and a ring...you can see the pictures HERE. Can't wait to work on something new!!!

I'm also excited to share my newest card I made for this weeks ODBDSLC46 and the C4C72. The ODBD theme is to *USE BLUE* on your creation, not just a little...as your main color!!! The C4C theme for this week is to create a project using *Vintage or Shabby Chic* elements. As always swing by the challenge blogs and read the requirements on how to play along!!!



The Psalm I used is from the ODBD Faith Set. I created a long card today...the measurements are 3 1/2" x 6". My card base is Vanilla and I added a punched out decorative Marina Mist border on top....I actually used two individual Vanilla CS and added the Marina Mist CS in the center. If you want a really good 2-side gluing tape then check out the awesome Scor-Tapes...got to love that stuff...LOL!!! They come in different sizes and I also like that!!!

Anyway, the DP in the BG is from the older SU Bella Blue Collection I adhered it to the Marina Mist CS. I also distressed the edges and added the matching Marina Mist Satin Ribbon. The Psalm was placed on a Beaded Oval Nestabilitie. Did I mention I'm the proud owner of the new Grand Callibur??? Love that machine!!!! Next I embellished the card with some Silver Pearls, some Rhinestone Flourishes, a Silver Button with some Scrap Floss, some matching Roses I received from my ODBD sister Sabrina and of course the punched out butterfly!

Now it's time to check out the gorgeous blue cards the ODBD challenge team has created ~ Sabrina, Chris, Francie, Pat and please don't forget to swing by the C4C blog for all the gorgeous creations the Crazy team has created!!!

Have a fabulous weekend!!! See ya soon and thank you for stopping by...hugs ~S~

Silke, this is gorgeous, girl!! Love it!!

Marisa said...

Love the punched top of the card and the nestie with pearls plus the flowers is fabulous! Gorgeous as always. Question: What are the benefits of the Grand Caliber vs. the cuttlebug - other than being able to fit in the Grand Nesties? Just curious in case I need to add it to my wish list LOL.
