ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, July 9, 2013
Happy Tuesday all!! I hope this post finds you all well.  I hope everyone in the USA had a wonderful July 4 holiday.  I know our family had a restful vacation together at the beach which gave us the opportunity to celebrate our dear daughters birthday, relax and enjoy each other's company and reflect on the beauty of God's creation.  It was a well needed break and a real blessing for the family.

Today I am popping in to share a card I am making for the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.  This week's challenge is Love, Wedding or Anniversary!!

Here is my creation using: To the LovebirdsLove Scriptures and the 

Our Daily Bread Designs, To the Lovebirds, Birdcage and Banner dies, Love Scriptures

The background is embossed with a Darice Cherry Blossom Embossing folder.  The flowers are using a Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch.  The bird is cut out with the ODBD  Bird Cage and Banner Dies.  The beautiful verse is from Love Scriptures.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
