ODBDSLC #176 - No Ribbons or Lace

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is to create a card with no ribbons or lace, please join us here for all of the details.

For this week's challenge I decided to make a masculine card. The moose was heat embossed and watercolored with distress markers then layered on many Splellbinder dies. My original sketch reflected the pine bows wrapping around the right side, but in the end I thought this would be too heavy, so I pulled out this wonderful flourish from the Custom Fancy Foliage die set which gives it a lighter look. I love this wonderful proverb, perfect for my husband or my Father.

Our Daily Bread Supplies: Fathers Day stamp set, Custom Fancy Foliage die set.

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, embossing folders, foam tape, distress markers, water pen.
