ODBD 2nd Anniversary Challenges Continue


Today is the last day for you to participate in the Our Daily Bread designs' 2nd Anniversary Challenges, which were posted in advance on the ODBD blog in this post. Today's challenge is to use your favorite stamp set by Our Daily Bread designs. It was an extremely tough decision for me to choose, since there are so many that are dear to my heart. I eventually chose the lotus blossom from "Mother Teresa" and the quote by Mother Teresa is from the set, "Let Us Begin".

For the general design of my card, I have used Gloria's Sketch Tuesday Challenge from Christian Paper Crafts. The designer paper is SEI "Pink Lady Pearl". The lotus was colored with SEI chalk inks. The embossed border is a Cuttlebug flower border which was sponged with cocoa and Basic Grey Opaline Pearls were added for a little extra accent. The poly-twill ribbon is by May Arts (tied with my Bow Easy), and the entire card was sprayed multiple times with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist.

For the China Inspiration Challenge on Sunday, I was one of several on the Design Team with blog candy to offer. Out of all of the comments left on my post, the random winner is:

southernscraps! Congrats, Fonda!!

Please contact me at angelladcrockett@yahoo.com by Saturday, March 20 at midnight EST to claim your blog candy.

My blog candy consists of the card which was made for the China Challenge, plus some other goodies which include a hand-made cross made by my father-in-law, Basic Grey brads, and three types of May Arts ribbon.

For today's challenge, there is more hidden blog candy on some of the blogs listed below. Check out their gorgeous work and leave a comment to be eligible to win the blog candy.
