Grow in Grace New ODBD Release



If you're looking for the Blog Hop or Guest Designer contest, please scroll down to my earlier post. I wasn't totally happy with the card I posted earlier, so to redeem myself, I made a second which fit all of the same challenges as the earlier post: the ODBD Design Team Challenge to pick three of the new ODBD Ink Pads, the sketch challenge over at Splitcoast to use nine circles, squares, etc.; and to show you another beautiful new set released today by Our Daily Bread Designs. The ODBD colors I chose are Terra Cotta, Sunflower, and Olive. The "sunflowers" are from Spellbinders "Flower Bouquet" Shapeabilities, stenciled with Terra Cotta and Sunflower. The stems are a Martha Stuart foliage punch. The sentiment tag is Spellbinders "Ribbon Tags Trio". The border punch is from EK Success, called "Dotted Scallop", the brads are Basic Grey, the barely visible dp layer is Memory Box "Brandywine". Other paper: SU Summer Sun, Kraft, and Whisper White. And my FAVE part, the verse is from a new ODBD set called "Grow in Grace". I thought this would be a great verse to go with the sunflowers. This beautiful set, along with many others at ODBD was designed by former "Breadstick", Dina Kowal, aka Dini on SCS. Dina is so creative and artistic....if you haven't before, please check out her blog, Mama Dini's Stamperia.

Hey, have you checked out Christian Paper Crafts yet? Not only do they have card and scrapbook challenges, tips and tutorials, chat forums, and an awesome gallery, but my fave part is the daily devotional called "Daily Bread" by Marcelle Schauer, with whom the Lord has blessed me as a new and dear friend! (Marcelle is an AWESOME paper-crafter too.....this girl can QUILL like no other!!!) If you are looking for daily Bible study or just to have some wonderful Christian fellowship, check it out today. There is no membership fee....all you need is a username, just like many of the other gallery sites.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a blessed day!!!
