The Most High

Hello crafty friends!  Today is extra special because I'm a guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs' Stamping In Time Challenge (SNTODBD40).  Aside from using ODBD stamps, we are to use doilies in our projects.  This is my first time to use a doily in a card, and I was excited.

For this card, I used a stamp from the Scripture Collection 2 set.  Because my doily is white, I picked a background cardstock that would work.  And from there I was able to decide which other elements to use. 

Since I wanted to layer with my doily but still wanted it to show, I stamped and heat embossed my ODBD sentiment on vellum. And for more texture, I put a contrasting color die cut between the vellum and the doily.  As for my main embellishment, I layered two flowers then adhered micro beads in the center.

The tiny blue pearls on the edge are actually accents for acrylic nails, adhered with Glossy Inkssentials.

Materials used:
cardstock/dp:  Wassau, vellum, leftovers
image/sentiment:  Our Daily Bread Designs (Scripture Collection 2)
ink:  Tsukineko
tools:  Spellbinders, Heartfelt Creations
embellishments:  paper doily, flowers (Forever In Time), micro beads, pearls
adhesive:  Scotch, Zots, Fiskars, Glossy Inkssentials
