Hello everyone! Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs November Release Blog Hop! And, what an amazing blog hop it is going to be, too!!! We are releasing three of the most beautiful Christmas sets!! They are called Blessed Christmas, Luke 2:11, and Christmas Verses! If you came here from Sandee's Blog, you are in the right place! If you happened on my blog but did not start at the ODBD Blog, you really should go there and start from there! The reason is we are playing a game. Each designer has one secret word hidden within her post so you must hop to each, copy the word hidden in the designer's post with designer's name, and leave a comment. Then, you will return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment that you have visited all the blogs and left a comment so you can receive a special email address to email Greace with your completed sentence! Guess what? Once you have done that you are enter for a chance to WIN the ENTIRE NEW RELEASE this month! That's three GREAT new sets that will help you with all your card making needs just in time for Christmas!!!

This month the ODBD challenge is Glimmer Christmas! Check out the blog for even more ways to win!!! I am using some the mustard seed glimmer spray that is sold in the ODBD store. For my card, I cut to size two white pieces of cardstock, sprayed with the glimmer mist, let dry, then I stamped the top one with the corner image from the Luke 2:11 set. I colored colored with copics, and sponged the edges using Ranger antique linen and vintage photo inks to give a more vintage feel to the glimmer effect. I added a few tiny silver pearls for some extra background effect. I just wanted to add that my cardstock is very shimmery. I tried to capture some of that sheen when I took my photo! It really is unbelieveably glimmery in real life!

I stamped the same flowers onto more white cardstock, colored with copics, and sprayed with the mustard seed glimmer mist for aded sheen. I cut those out and topped them with some tiny silver pearls. For these particular poinsettias, I was trying to get the all green with the touch of pale pink color.
I stamped my sentiment panel and used the two cut out poinsettias as cut work floral detailing for my corners. This sentiment comes from the same set called Luke 2:11, however, I did alternate with the holly touches in the corner either the corner egde poinsettia image from this set or the poinsettia spray image from the Blessed Christmas set!

Thanks so much for reading my post and checking out what I created for you this month. My secret word is has! Next, you need to hop over to Silke's blog and see what she has created for you! As always, thanks so much for stopping by and your comments are greatly appreciated!!! Have a Blessed Day!
