Good morning!
Time for a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
A new sketch to inspire you!
ODBD stamps: Merry & Bright
ODBD dies: Christmas Lights, Snowflake Sky, Doily, Pierced Circles
I used the outer doily die to cut the scallop frame and the vellum. The background was sprayed with Dylusions spray inks on aluminum foil (or any non porous surface) and then sprayed with lots of water and my paper dunked into the inky puddles sort of speak.  When dry,  I cut the "Snowflake Sky" in white and glued it (and the frame that comes with it) to the top of the background that I made. I cut 2 strands of "Christmas Lights", colored them with a purplish color and glued them to my hand cut banner which is popped up with foam tape.  The sentiment is cut with a pierced circle then popped up and  matted with another pierced circle.
I added some rhinestones to the background for some extra bling.
In real life my bow and sentiment matches perfectly so I think the embossing powder and the shimmer of the ribbon must bounce light differently.

Here is the sketch, have fun!

Ephesians 2: 8-10
 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
