We have a sketch challenge starting today!
I've turned mine sideways because I wanted to use this beautiful scripture for today!
ODBD dies used: Beautiful Borders, Fancy Foliage, Birds and Nest
ODBD paper used: Vintage Ephemera Collection
Who doesn't want to know that God has a plan for their future, a good plan. This scripture has always been a comfort to me through the years! That is why I wanted to use it today. This stamped scripture is just right for this sketch panel if done vertically, so...
I used the Beautiful Border twice, one brown on top of black because it just "needed" that extra. I also used black for trimming on all the panels. It gives a more finished look I think in this case. The Vintage Ephemera paper panels were distressed with my handy dandy distressing tool from Ranger.
I added the larger leaves from the Birds and Nest set to the Fancy Foliage flourish. I wanted the flourish to be more of a framing accent than a flourish under/with flowers. The bigger leaves provided that extra for me. The three black brads are added for embellishment as well as the four corner decorative brads. I don't usually use brads for attaching anything so I cut off the prongs and hammered down the back to make it flatter. No holes and better for mailing that way. Use a heavy duty glue to attach, or glue dots. I find that glue dots eventually dry up and things tend to fall off, so glue is a better option in my opinion.
I hope you like this masculine card, just in time for Father's Day!!! Please visit my design team sisters for more inspiration:
