ODBD Bread Basket

Saturday, July 18, 2009
Happy Saturday all! I had planned on being at my nieces graduation party yesterday but my daughter and husband are sick. Today is very much a lay low day in our household.

Today's card is one made for SC237 (featuring Judy-Joy In a Jar's, my ODBD sister and friend's layout) and WT237. Wednesday was Judy's birthday and I thought it was a neat coincidence that Roxi would feature one of Judy's layouts. I decided to make my card for Judy using her featured layout in her favorite color pink. I hope you had a great birthday Judy and that you are blessed with many more happy healthy years to come.

I used the Lotis from the Our Daily Bread Designs New Release-Mother Teresa. The image was embossed in gold on watercolor paper and then watercolored. The dp is from the SU Walk in the Park paper pack and Basic Grey Porcelain Prints (available at ODBD). The double butterflies were silver but I embossed them gold. I wanted gold since Judy has a heart of gold and it seemed symbolic to me. I am still borrowing a friend's laptop and I am not sure if the stiching shows up on your PC or not but it does not on this one. There is stiching on the edges.
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Mother Teresa, sentiment typed on PC
Paper: Walk in the Park, Porcelain Prints by Basic Grey, Pink Pirouette, Regal Pink
accessories: gold baubles, Cuttlebug Vintage Corners, EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch, Label 4 nestabilities, butterfly charms, Offray pink ribbon, Textile Cuttlebug folder, hero arts pearls.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!
