Heaven & Earth, ODBDSLC115, CC383, and MORE!!

Happy Tuesday!  I have a card to share with you today.  This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC383)! Raspberry Pirouette Cakes! Check out the link to play along and to find out about our dessert option.

I am using ODBD
Scripture Collection 3 set along with the newly released Calla Lily set.  I am also playing along with ODBD Shining the Light Challenge(ODBDSLC115)  tearing or distressing.  I guess I did a little of both. 
For my card I knew I wanted to distress it a bit in keeping with the dessert option as well as.  I thought it would look great to stamp and color the new Calla Lily set around the edges and lightly color.  I ink distressed the edges.  To make sure I had room for my scripture I thought it would look cool to add a more modern feel with the pennant tag stitch to the top left topped with a button and twine for a more vintage distress feel.    I really love how it turned out.  I think the ink distressing really toned down the boldness of the colors a bit.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
