This card is for a few challenges. First, it is for today's SCS LSC215. Triple Play! Thanks so much Wendy for a fabulous challenge. This challenge is also for the monthly Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge. I am also participating in Sharon Johnson's (notimetostamp) hang it up challenge. I have a dangling heart charm I added to my card. Another fun challenge, Sharon!!!

I am using ODBD newly release 1 Corinthians 13. I love this scripture. I am using some dp I purchased online a several months ago. It is by Scenic Route and it is very bold and bright. I have been hesitating to use it because it is so bright.

For the triple play LSC challenge. I used two pieces of dp one at the top and one at the layer....and I layered the oval nesties....two layers for a total of three layers. My oval scripture, ribbon, and charm are my three focal points. I used red, yellow, and green as the colors in the dp.....and white as my neutral. The card base is the free layer.

After I made my card, took the picture and did the editing, I decided my card needed a new look....SAME card TWO to speak. So, I took it apart....gasp!!!! I used ranger inks antique linen and tea dyed to distress all the papers and ribbon as well as the focal scripture. I kept both looks because I really could not decide if I liked one more than the other.

Which look do you like?

ODBD 1 Corinthians 13
PTI poppy, Scenic Route dp, gp white
Real red, Ranger antique linen and tea dyed
ribbon, heart charm, gold pearl/domes


  1. These are beautiful Betty!!! Love them!!!

  2. Betty, both versions of this card are so lovely! I love that scripture too!

  3. Oh I like them both... but if I had to choose one... It would be the first... more of a clean and crisp kinda girl ya know. hee hee great cards both of them Betty.

  4. So beautiful, Betty!! I am a distressed kinda girl so i of course LOVE the second one, but the first round was beautiful too!

  5. Very pretty card!! I love what the distressing does to it!! Love it!! :)

  6. I love both cards Betty, but since you asked, I would probably favor the first one because the dp lends itself to a clean and crisp look. :D Great colors Betty!

  7. Beautiful!! It's amazing how sponging can alter the look so quickly and dramatically!

  8. Well, as much as I love them both, I really prefer the more subtle look of the second one. You can see from the comments that there wasn't a "wrong" way. :-) Beautiful card!!!

  9. I love them both!!! They are both so beautiful!!

  10. They are both wonderful but I think the distressed one is softer and I go for that look.

  11. both are beautiful, Betty... but I do like the distressed one better. tfs

  12. WOW Betty, what a difference a little sponging/ distressing makes! Both cards have great styles and unique looks. The first looks clean, crisp and bright, while the second looks more sophisticated and elegant. Tough to choose. im laughing because Ive been in your spot where I finish a card just to stand back, look twice and take it apart! LOL> Sometimes it pays off, other times, i wish I'd of left it alone! But I dont ever regret it because one will never know unless we give it a try. Thats how I learn anyway. :)

  13. These are both beautiful! I love to distress, so I am going to say the sponged card! Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog!

  14. Oh they are both striking - lots of fresh burst of color! That big ol ribbbon really brings it home - superb!

  15. Betty - both cards are beautiful!!! I do like the clean, crisp look of the first one a touch better....but then again the sponging looks awesome too!!! The DP and colors are wonderful too!!!

  16. Both are gorgeous!! I usually like distressing, but I think I like the cleaner look of the first on with these papers and colors. I can't believe you took it apart without ruining paper would be shredded if I tried that!!

  17. Both are gorgeous, Betty. Love how you've showed the difference so dramatically!!


Thanks so much!
