Hello, Friends!! I can't believe how time flys by and that it is already July!!  It seems that if I blink, the summer will be over. I guess being so busy with graduate classes and etc. makes the time slip away that much faster!!  I still am enjoying the summer despite my busy schedule.  I just love seeing all the flowers blooming, the green leaves, and the green grass.  Everything is so lush!! Our daylily garden is just gorgeous right now!!

Today I am sharing a creation I made for this month's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD: This month's challenge is: Anything that Grows...with ODBD.  You must use at least one stamp or die from ODBD, Artistic Outpost, and Northcoast Creations.

I am so excited to be sharing a creation I made with the newest floral stamps and stunning dies from Our Daily Bread Designs this past weekend!! I so enjoyed using the True Friends stamp set, Layered Lacey OvalsVintage Borders dies, Mini Tags and Labels dies,  Ornate Ovals diesDecorative Corners diesPierced Rectangles dies, and Boho Bolds designer paper

Our Daily Bread Designs, Designed by Chris Olsen, True Friends stamp set, Layered Lacey Ovals, Vintage Borders dies, Mini Tags and Labels dies,  Ornate Ovals dies, Decorative Corners dies, Pierced Rectangles dies, and Boho Bolds designer paper.

I colored my image with copics, cut it out and popped it on dimensionals.  The borders and decorative corner are die cut from gold metallic cardstock.

For more inspiration for the ODBDSLC 276 challenge used: Anything Grows with ODBD stamps, please visit my design team sisters: Robin and Diana or visit the ODBD blog to add your creation to the challenge here. You have until July 3 to join us.

Thank you so much for stopping by!! May God Bless you!!

Your card is just beautiful. You have colored the iris so perfectly and the yellow bow really pops with the blue.
