Now for my card!
You've seen the sneak peeks of these beautiful flower sets...I'm loving them!

OvalBlessings Rejoice 1 This is Easter Blessings, Lily of the Valley...mmmm, I can almost smell them can't you! I love to bring in a bouquet and set in my kitchen window, the fragrance wafts through the whole house!

I stamped the flowers on white and colored them with chalks, then stamped the verse on vellum and embossed it for the overlay. Then I stamped and chalked 2 more, dabbed with embossing ink, sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set. *this makes cutting those fussy teensy pieces so much easier! And that yummy paper... it's SEI.

Before you go...if this wasn't exciting enough...

I want to tell you about the fun events we have planned for you this month!  March 17 is the Second Anniversary of  Our Daily Bread designs, and we are celebrating!!!

Be sure to check the ODBD Blog on Sunday, Mar. 7!  We will be announcing fun challenges that will run Mar. 13 - 16 so you can get a jump on them.... there will be prizes EVERY DAY!  On Mar. 17 we will have another Blog Hop, revealing the Special Edition Anniversary Release

Now I'll send you on to Debi, be prepared to be WoW'd!

My secret word is  Bloggers

Thanks for stopping!

The lemony-lime coloring produced an automatic reflex of pucker and salivating in me...not a bad thing! You might say it makes me drool! I love the lilies of the valley cut closely and used as embellishment. It takes time but it is SO effective. TFS

Hi Dawn!

This is Fabulous! I love everything about it!

I love the bright d.p. and the way you put the flower in the background of the forefront Lily of the Valley is just so beautiful. There are so many things we can do with vellum...love the impact! The chalking is beautiful! I think this may be the first piece of yours that was chalked. You could do it more often, you do it wonderfully. I just think it is great how the Lily leans out of the frame shape...and your bow looks fantastic! Did you use a bow easy? :)
