ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Happy Tuesday all!!  I hope all is well!!  This weekend was unseasonably warm but the temperature seems to be getting to more normal averages for this time of year.  A little dreary with the rain but I am not complaining since we seem to have been lacking rain since this fall.

I decided that today I would make a more cheerful card for my niece who just had a baby boy using a bolder blue against clean white.  This card was made for this Week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's challenge is:
ODBDSLC138 Border it- use your dies and punches to make a special border on one, two or all sides

Our Daily Bread Designs, Little Boys,  Antique Labels Design, Words of Faith, Antique Labels and Border die

Stamps Used:  Little Boys,  Antique Labels DesignWords of Faith
Dies Used: Antique Labels and Border die, Spellbinders Lattice, A2 rectangles, Scalloped and classic circles. Floral Doily Accents

Here is a photo of the sets used:

Brrr - it's turned icy cold here, so I'd be happy if it warmed up a bit for us! I just love those old-fashioned sentiment images, and the clean crisp layout is perfect for a little boy.It reminds me of nursery furniture with the trellis and wonderfully framed image.
