It is release day at ODBD!!! We have some wonderful sets for you this month!!! I am showcasing the Let Us Begin set which features wonderful corner images and Mother Teresa quotes.

The design team is doing a color challenge. We each chose three of ODBD ink pads from the store. I chose Sunflower, Olive, and Bordeaux.























I love these three colors!!! The ink is wonderful. I decided to pair my inks with Prism by Prismatics cardstock. I am using Razzleberry dark, Sunflower medium, and Spring Willow medium. I completed two cards that have the same basic background, but different focal images. I wanted to focus on the ink colors in one with a quote and the images in another with a quote.

For my first card, I used one of the corner images stamped in bordeaux. The Mother Teresa quote is stamped in olive. I colored the flowers from the other corner piece using an aquapainter with the bordeaux and sunflower ink pads. I cut those flowers out and lined with a black copic marker. I topped each flower with some stickles for sparkle. I finished with some gold pearl domes and double stitched ribbon.

The second card, showcases another quote from Mother Teresa. This card shows you each color ink stamped with a portion of the quote. I love this look, too.

Now, it is time to continue on your blog hop for candy and to see some fabulous ODBD creations!!! The blog hop starts at the ODBD blog. So, if you stopped by
