Happy Tuesday Friends!! 

 I feel like it has been so long since I have posted!! I am so sorry but I have been busy with things at home as well as with stamping things that I will not be able to share for a bit yet.  I am, however, popping with a Sneak Peek of a new stamp set, sharing of some old sets and a card for the new Shining the Light challenge!!!!

This week's challenge is:  Fluttering or Flying (We want to see your birds or butterflies or anything that flies...but it must be a stamped image and not just a punch or designer paper)

Here is my card:

Our Daily Bread Designs, Chris Olsen, Fancy foliage die,  Pickles, Finch Collage, Poppy, Hymn Collage

I had so much fun coloring my image with copics and then fussy cutting it out.  I decided to mask and layer a combination of images.  I then added some foliage that was cut out with the Fancy Foliage Die (sneak peek from ODBD to be released on August 1).  The verse is from the sneak peek PICKLES to be released on Thursday!!

Card Recipe:
ODBD Stamps Used: Pickles (verse) a sneak peek to be released on August 1,Hymn Collage, Finch Collage, Poppy
Dies Used:  Sneak peek of Fancy Foliage from Our Daily Bread Designs, Spellbinders Circles
Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Poppy
