ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, April 5, 2016
Hello, Friends!!  I hope everyone had a good weekend!!  It is hard to believe it is already April!!

I am popping in to share a card I created for the ODBDSLC273 challenge and for a dear friend on her birthday.  The Shining the Light challenge was to use the letters in the ODBD abbreviation for a recipe on your card whether it be the image, materials used or technique.

Our Daily Bread Designs, All Mothers, Layered Lacey Squares, Doily, Ornate Flowers and Borders, Double Stitched Circles, Fancy Fritillary, Cozy Comfort Quilt Collection, designed by Chris Olsen
For the challenge, I used the letters in ODBD for a recipe for the Shining the Light Challenge:
O- Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, Ornate Corners
D- Doily, Double Edged Circles
B- Butterfly, Banner, Black, Bow
D- Dimension, Designer Paper

ODBD Card Recipe:
ODBD Stamps Used: All Mothers
ODBD Dies Used: Layered Lacey Squares, Doily, Ornate Flowers and Borders, Double Stitched Circles, Fancy Fritillary
ODBD Paper Used: Cozy Quilt 6x6 Paper Collection

As you can see, I have used several layers.  I am loving the Cozy Comfort Collection paper!!  The colors are so beautiful as are the patterns.  If you look at the card close up you will see the sewn border and the Poppies embossed in the background.

We would love to have you join us for this challenge.  For more details you can see the challenge at the ODBD blog here as well as link your creation. You have until, May 1 to add your link.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Diana and Robin.
