ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Hello Friends!!  I hope you all have enjoyed the summer so school has begun for my girls, whom I home school, and all the kids in the county.  I can't believe it!!!

Today I am sharing a card for the Our Daily Bread Design Shining the Light challenge. It is a sketch!!

I used the crocus image from the set Let the Earth Rejoice.  I so love blue lavender, maybe because it reminds me of a clear summer or spring day!!

The pennants are created with the ODBD Pennant Swag die and the image is framed with the Vintage Flourish Pattern die.  The border along the bottom is created with the ODBD Beautiful Borders die.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Cheryl Scrivens, DJ Rants, Diana Nyugen, Robin Clendenning, Linda Carson, and Elizabeth Whisson.

To see all the challenge in one place, click here.  You have until September 7  join in. We would love to see your creations!!

Oh, Chris, your card is stunning! I LOVE the colors, and your crocus are so beautifully colored and fussy cut! Your cards always delight me, and this one is no different. I always love the beautiful, rich texture of your cards and how you layer wonderfully! And I love how you've used the Pennant Swag die with the Beautiful Borders die - two of my faves! Gorgeous ribbon to finish it off with some pearls! Absolutely faving and pinning this one!! Praying for you also, my dear friend!! Tender hugs, Cheryl
