ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well!!

Today is a beautiful day!  The sun is shining and the humidity is less. Prayerfully I can go out with Scott when he returns home!!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD!!  This week's challenge is Happy Birthday!!  It is perfect for me as I have both my daughter's birthday's in the next two weeks.

Here is my creation for my sweet Nicki's birthday on Friday using Bloom, Iris, and Peaches from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I also used the ODBD Elegant Ovals  and Beautiful Borders die as well as a Spellbinders Scalloped Oval.  The embossed background is Sizzix x and o's embossing folder.

I had a lot of fun creating this scene by masking the iris and foxglove images 4 times each and then coloring them with copics.  The sentiment is recessed and not popped up on top of the card.  Only the scalloped edge is raised.

Oh, Chris, this is stunning! I love your "garden" of flowers so beautifully colored (and masked) and then embossed for the lovely texture. And I love the borders top and bottom with the ribbon and pearls and how you've added the "happy birthday" sentiment! Nicki is going to LOVE it, which means Meghan may have helped you on this one? :) Good to see you making more beautiful cards...and I hope you feel a little better today than yesterday! Hugs, precious friend!
