 It is time for ODBD Stamping In Time on Assignment Challenge SNTODBD9! The Assignment is to use any ODBD stamps! The Challenge is “A Little Something Something!” Make a card or project using something “old” something “new,” and something “received!” Other stuff can be used, of course, but tell us about these three!

For my card, I am  using ODBD The Lord is Risen stamp set.  I am using Mercy Tuesday Sketch Challene MTSC72!  I am using some gem flourished accenting for the swirl element on the sketch.   I am also using a decorative pin for today's SCS Ways to Use it Challenge(WT269)!   I added one Martha Stewart butterfly punch to it.  For my "new" item, I created the layered distressed flower using Flower Soft.  This is a new product for me.  I was playing around with it and wanted to try to use it differently than what I have seen.  I was not going for a perfect looking covered flower....one that was more crushed and distressed.  I love the way my distressed and very textural flower turned out.  I may need to get more colors of this stuff.  Can you imagine a deep red to create a poinsettia look for Christmas?  Lots of possibilities!  This card is also for this week's The Shabby Tea Room:  "Get Your Bling On" Challenge #8!  Definitely got some bling going on! 

For the something old, I am using some pink pirouette cs and some left over bella rose dp.  I am so happy that even though these are "old" the colors will soon be revived!  For my something "received,"  I am using one of two lace trims that sparklegirl(Silke) sent me.  This one is a crisp, very intricate white! I thought it worked perfectly with the delicate printed papers and the pink pirouette color to allow the flower element to pop a bit.  Thanks, Silke!

 Also, check out Angie, Debi, Connie, Chris, and Sabrina's blogs to see what they all created with the "little something something" challenge! 
As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
