Black n White with piercing

hi there - trying to stay cool here LOL

Made this card last night for two challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ - black and white which has the most tremendous post by Grace. I have printed it and will be using with the ladies at the jail Bible Study.
Our Daily Bread - piercing challenge

Love both of these challenges - hope you can see my piercing around my clear embossed butterflies.
what doesnt show in pic is the glossy accents and black stickles I used on the flower images...



always amazed at the difference it makes in "where" you take the pictures ...the top one is inside with setting on automatic and the bottom two are both taken outside...neither pic even shows the lace underneath the black ribbon. This is definitely so prettier IRL

STAY COOL!!!
Hugs and blessings

Gorgeous! I keep forgetting to pierce on my projects this week. I think I've used obdb on 2 items, but no piercing, ugg. Wasn't that the best post by Grace??? Did you have to cut & paste? That's what I think I'll be doing. Take care~hugs & kisses~

Wow Linda this is just over the top gorgeous!!! I LOVE what you did with the butterfly corners! Love the layout and lace! I have the same issues with where I photograph! I'm thrilled that you'll be sharing the Scripture promises with those you visit in jail! That blesses my heart! God's Word never returns void! Thanks for sharing and thanks for joining us at Stampin Sisters in Christ and ODBD!!!

What a wonderful piece of art. Your LO is so pretty and love the b/w, makes such a statement. On my way to read Grace's post, God leads us all through each other and you always inspire me to be a better person. Have a wonderful weekend.

I saw this at ODBD. It caught my eye. It is just stunning! Congrats on your award. You certainly deserve it - what a beautiful card! You are right about the difference it makes where you take a photo. Yours look great everywhere! It certainly looks beautiful outside in Fredricksburg, btw. I'm assuming that's where you took the pic. I'm originally from Roanoke, and VA is always beautiful!
