ODBD "For the Love Of....Flower Sets" Blog Hop!

Welcome to the "For the Love of......Flower Sets" Blog Hop, hosted by our amazing Alumni Team, and joined by various "Breadsticks" from the Design Team, Challenge Team, and Scrapbook Team....one big happy family! :)

These fun hops happen twice a month and give you another chance to win a gift certificate to the Our Daily Bread designs store!  The theme for this hop is ODBD Flower Sets!!

If you have hopped here from Rosemary's amazing blog, you are in the right place.....if you just happened to stop by, please head over to the ODBD Blog and start at the beginning.  All of the blogs are listed there....hop along with us, leaving comments as you go, for a chance to win!  You have until Wednesday, May 9th at 6pm Eastern, to complete the hop.

I have used the Daisy set for my sample today, along with a Cheery Lynn Designs "Large Sunflower Doily" die. I wanted the Daisy and doily to be the focus, so I didn't add a sentiment or many embellishments.
 

Card 'Ingredients':
Stamps: Our Daily Bread designs 'Daisy';
Cardstock: Stampin Up Always Artichoke, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: Prima 'Sun Kiss';
Ink: Stazon Jet Black, Stampin Up Markers and Ink Pads;
Accessories: Cheery Lynn Designs 'Large Sunflower Doily' cutting die, Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Punch, Zva Creative pearls, May Arts Crocheted Lace and Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, 'Pearl' Glimmer Mist, Paper Piercer and Template, Sponge Daubers (for coloring flower centers), Foam Tape;
Size: 5-1/2 x 5-1/2.


I really love this new doily die (which will be added soon to the ODBD store).  It  measures 5-1/4 across, which is perfect for the square cards I usually make....5-1/2 card base, 5-3/8 mat, and 5-1/4 designer paper layer.....the doily is just right!!


Thanks so much for hanging out with me and the other Breadsticks today!  Head over to the ODBD Blog now and let us know with your comment that you have completed the hop and let us know if there were any blogs on which you could not comment.

Have a very blessed day!!
