Amazing Grace!!! More ODBD Sneak Peeks!

This card is for today's Limited Supplies Challenge(LSC226)!!! Thanks so much, Wendy!!!
I do not know what motivated me Chinese food some steamed dumplings and vegetable lo mein(wish it came in multigrain), or the a la carte stamping menu!!! I loved choosing from the groups.

For this card we had to keep it masculine.Here is what I chose.
Menu #1 – Images (just pick one item from each menu!)
3. Neutral Images
Menu #2 – Color Schemes
3. Neutrals
Menu #3 – Embellishments (this is where it can get tricky!)
1. Ribbon & Brads OR Eyelets (tie masculine KNOTS instead of girly BOWS)

I am showing you another sneak peek of two more sets that will be released by ODBD on July 1st. The Amazing Grace Hymn is a single image and is fantastic because it can act as a background or focal image. I am also showcasing the Grow in Grace set.

To keep my card masculine which was part of today's LSC theme, I stamped a few of the dogwood images as part of the background and I did not color them. I also used one of the sentiments. Grace as an acronym is awesome!!! It truly says it all.

I used some ranger antique linen ink to sponge around the edges of the cream cardstock. I finished my card with a few altered dew drops instead of brads. I added gold metallic markers to give them an aged feel. I also used the embossing heat tool to heat my organdy ribbon to make the look alittle more manly.

Please check out this blog post to see my other ODBD sneak peek.
