ODBD Bread Basket

Wednesday, October 31, 2012
Happy Hump Day Friends!! It is hard to believe we are already at the half way mark.  The week is just slipping away after Hurricane Sandy!! Thankfully the storm was nothing like they predicted it would be here. I pray for NYC and all the affected areas!!!  Prayerfully, restoration will be brought back soon.

Today I would like to share one of the gorgeous new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs which will be released tomorrow: Turtle Dove Ornament.  If you like birds, then you are in for a real treat on this next release!!  But that's not all in the release...there is no more.  The blog hop for ODBD starts tomorrow at 8 a.m. EDT!!!

For my card, I colored my image with copics and then added some glitter.  The glitter made the doves look more blue than gray in the photo.  The embossed background is created with the Sizzix Holly Embossing Folder.  Rather than pop up my ornament, I used the negative of the circle die to create my frame (This is the challenge at Catered Crop).  The ribbon is actually wrinkled red ribbon from May Arts.  The pearl strand going down the side is one strand glued down that I was given by a dear friend.  The sentiment is framed with the Fancy Labels 2 dies from Spellbinders.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- Turtle Dove Ornament (sneak peek)
Embossing folder: Sizzix Holly embossing folder
Dies: Spellbinders Classic and scalloped Circles dies (large and small), Spellbinders Labels Fancy Labels 2 dies
Accessories: Pearl strand, May Arts Wrinkled Red Ribbon, ZVA Creative white pearls

I hope this creation, has somehow inspired you.

Thanks for stopping by!! I treasure all my viewers/blogging friends and their comments.

Have a blessed Day!!!

I love what you have done with the negative circle frame, it gives the illusion that the image is actually inside the card. Spotted you on MiM :o)
