For my card, I have layered Spellbinders Labels Eight, Decorative Labels Eight, and Oval Nestabilities dies, embellished with satin ribbon and tiny Zva Creative pearls.

Thanks for helping us to celebrate this week!  Only two more days until the reveal of our new Anniversary sets!!!  Yay!!!

Blessings,

ODBD Designer Angie Crockett
