A Lovely Sentiment from ODBD

Hello all. I finally had time to post a card for a few challenges. I have been busy working on some scrapbooks for my sil's and a mini-album for a friend,  but all of these things are I can't post anything about them yet!
I missed my card making, and then a friend needed a card for her mil, who had been in the hospital, so here is the card I made using a stamp from ODBD's With Heartfelt Sympathy set.

Here is a closeup of the lovely sentiment, which I stamped with black pigment ink and heat embossed with Ranger clear embossing powder. I then punched it out with a 3 inch scalloped punch and added a drop of Stickles (in a color I really like called Patina) in each scallop. I raised the whole sentiment up on 3D Dots. That is a Spellbinders Pendant Shapeability underneath.

                                                                                   Who wouldn't love to get a card expressing such a sentiment? How nice to know you mean so much to someone! ODBD has so many great sentiment sets, including some brand new ones that I really want! This card happens to fit their current Shining the Light Challenge 63 which is a Sentiment Only Challenge.
                                                                                     In addition, this week Linda Lucas is hosting Stamping Sisters in Christ's Challenge #92, which is based on John 13:34-35. Here Jesus is giving us a NEW commandment to love one another as He has loved us. So Linda has cleverly turned this into asking us to use something NEW TO US on our creation. In my case, the lavendar dp is new to me (and I have already forgotten who made it!!!), as is the lovely Prima flower (which I have been saving for just the right creation), and the beautiful Floral Butterfly Ribbon Round from The Paper Company is new to me also. So I have all sorts of new goodies on this card for this challenge! Oh, btw, I did want to add that the pale green floral dp is from K & Co. - specifically from a collection by Brenda Walton. She always designs the most beautiful vintage-look creations!
                                                                                      I am also entering Shabby Tea Room's current challenge #65 (Technique Week), where the technique is to use wet or dry embossing. I used wet (or heat) embossing on my sentiment, as I mentioned previously. 
                                                                                      If for any reasons any of these links don't work, please look in my sidebar. They are listed there under my fav scrappy places.  Thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you'll take the time to leave a comment - I love to read them! Have a wonderful day.
