Everyday is a gift

This is the first time I've used this set. I've admired so many of the cards made from it. Very classy/traditional styling. I really liked how so many stamped the sentiment right over the cross, so I had to give that a try too.

Another one of our Ocean's 11 bloggies has a birthday this year, so this is for her, Happy Birthday Karen/Saved By Grace. I hope she had a great birthday!
I used my CuttleBug on the Designer Paper...doesn't look much like DP, but it really is, just a more solid color. You have to be careful when using an embossing folder on DP, it's not as thick as cardstock and can tear.

Set: Refuge & Strength
Accessories: DP Patterns Pack, Blue Bayou, Whisper White cardstocks, Blue Bayou, Black StazOn and Creamy Caramel inks, Primas, Stickles, CutterKit, Sponge, CuttleBug, Blue Bayou Ribbon

That is one lovely card, very classy. Reminds me of a song by Chris Rice too, 'every day is a gift that you've been given,' . . . cannot remember the title, but that song is in my head now.

Oh what a beautiful card! I KNOW Karen will love it! This cross is just made for overstamping I think! I use it often! Great job!!!

I love the colour combination and the way you stamped the sentiment over the cross.

Love the color combo here, that brown and blue are perfect compliments for each other. The verse looks great stamped over the cross.
