ODBD December New Release Blog Hop

Good morning!
Are you ready for our new release?
It's beautiful!!

My first card features the new release For Thine Is The Kingdom.

I also used the new Deco Art Border and ODBD favorites Pretty Posies, Birds And NestFancy Foliage, Shabby Rose Collection Paper and Butterfly and Bugs stamp set
I stamped the For Thine Is The Kingdom with black ink and then stamped the butterflies with pink ink, it's visible but doesn't interfere with the reading of the passage.  I cut it and rounded the corners with a radius template and scissors then inked the edges with pink. I cut my flowers and shaped them, cut the foliage and Deco Border in green along with some leaves.  I layered 3 papers from the Shabby Rose paper and added pink tulle, the flowers, foliage, leaves and border. I glued some pink Prills to the flower centers and placed some pearl accents around the flowers to bring it all together! 
I really love this new Scripture stamp.  It is perfect for making a gift for a friend.

My second card features the new release Pennant Verses and Double Stitched Pennants along with the Pennant Flags

I also used ODBD favorites Birds And Nest (For the flowers), Ovals, Stitched Ovals, Decorative Corners and Cozy Quilt Collection paper. 
I added twine and Prills as embellishments for this card.
I layered the decorative paper with matching card stock and stamped, cut out and die cut the pennant layers, corner, and flowers then put it all together.  My decorative paper is popped up from the oval cut out. 
My center oval was embossed and Liquid Pearls was added to each cross section. The bottom banner sentiment is in a wave bend.
Get your ink out, it's time to make some beautiful gifts for family and friends.

Thanks for visiting today!!
Enjoy all the new release cards you'll see along the way!

As Christmas approaches please remember the real reason we celebrate.
Matthew 1:20b-25
“do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. 21 And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus,[i] for he will save his people from their sins.”
22 All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!

    She will give birth to a son,

and they will call him Immanuel,[j]

    which means ‘God is with us.’”
24 When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife. 25 But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.
