Honoring Grace!

Hi, everyone! Today, we at Layers of Color get the priveledge of honoring LOC designer, Grace Nywening! Grace has been showering us with such beautiful inspiration using our Layers of Colors stamps for some time now but is now stepping down as a DT member and becoming a Friend of LOC. We don't consider this a "goodbye" but more of a "we'll see you around!"

So, to honor of this wonderful sister in the Lord, the rest of the design team at LOC have made cards in her honor. I knew for sure that I wanted to include lace, pearls and flowers on my card as when I think of Grace's beautiful work, she often times includes those three items. I chose to do something a little different and paper piered the rose petals using My Minds Eye glitter stack called "Out and About". I colored the rest using Copic markers. The beautiful rose image is from LOC's recent cling art stamp release and it is called "Cottage Rose".

I was trying to get a good short of the whole card (which is hard sometimes when you take you pictures at night, inside a dimly lit house!) and managed to get this one but the beautiful sentiment is cut off a bit. It says "Wonderful" and it is from LOC's clear art stamp set called "Flutterecent."

Stop on by the other Design Team members blogs and check out what they have created in Grace's honor and don't forget to stop by and leave Grace some love too!

Have a wonderful day!
