A New Year and A New Release…ODBD!

Welcome and Happy New Year! Wow….2015, where did last year go?! Now comes the remembering to write the correct year! I wonder how long it will take me to get used to that!!

I’m sharing with you today several of the January releases from Our Daily Bread designs, here is what I used.

 


This card also uses several items previously released, Gilded Gate die , Vintage Flourish Pattern die, Ornate Hearts die and Rustic Beauty Paper Collection.

I stamped Music Speaks twice so I’d have one to die cut and one to color and hand cut the flowers and bird.

I carefully inked up the quote from Music Speaks for this one. Also for both of my cards I used the Faithful Fish Pattern die and debossing plate as a border. I used Patriotic Collection for the Ornate Hearts.

Prize Information: -
Three randomly selected winners will each receive a $25 gift certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps found in the "stamps column" of the website just for commenting on the Design Team cards!
