ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, May 3, 2016
Hello Friends!! Two posts within one week seems like a record for me as of late!! Life has been very busy and while I have been creating, I have had to wait to share this particular card until ODBD's recent release.

Today's card is for the Shining the Light challenge which is to use flowers and at least one stamp die, or paper from ODBD.  The flowers can be die cut, stamped, embellished or on paper.

Our Daily Bread Designs, Crocheted Circle Poppy, Good Day, Majestic Medallion Dies, Filligree frames die, Crocheted Circle Die, Pierced Circles die, Pierced Rectangles die, designed by Chris Olsen
ODBD Stamps Used: Good DayCrocheted Circle Poppy

I am just loving the Majestic Medallion Background!! It is so elegant and makes such a beautiful background!! The soft blue in the background makes it pop.  While you are unable to see it well in the photo.  The blue background paper is embossed for some added texture.

The poppy was colored with copic markers and die cut using the Crocheted Circle die.

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to sprout up before all the nations.

Isaiah 61:11

Despite what happens around the world, God's name will be praised in the end.  Despite the arguments of government, the circus the primaries have become or all the terror in the world, God is still present .  Even if the world should perish, He alone with be praised and glorified!!

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Robin and Diana or the ODBD blog.

Thanks so much for your comments and views!! They mean so much to me.

Have a blessed day!!
