ODBD Bread Basket

Thursday, March 3, 2016
Hello, dear friends, and Happy Thursday!! I hope you have had a wonderful and restful weekend as well as a great beginning to your week!! 

Today is the day of the Shining the Light challenge at ODBD; I had such fun making this creation that I will be sharing with you. The challenge this month is anything goes with ODBD stamps!!  Here is my creation:

Our Daily Bread Designs, Superstar, Double Stitched Squares, Layered Lacey Squares, Beautiful Borders,  Sparkling Stars, Double Stitched Stars, Flourished Star Pattern, Ovals, Stitched Ovals, designed by Chris Olsen
ODBD Stamps Used: Superstar

I saw this gorgeous foil embossed designer paper at Michaels and just had to buy it.  I have saved it in my stash for a while but thought it would be fun to use it with today's card.  I also had groovy guava cardstock and ribbon from Stampin Up In Colors years ago.  I really do like the silver and peach (groovy guava) color combo paired with white.

I hope you enjoyed my creation and are in some way inspired by it.  We would love to see your ODBD creations.  You have until March 13 to join us.  For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: Sabrina, Julie, Diana, and Robin!!

Thanks for visiting and for your comments!!  I hope you have a blessed day!!
