It is time for Stamping In Time on Assignment Challenge(SNTODBD16)! It is time for another challenge! The assignment is ODBD stamps. We have a challenge host! Mary Marsh is hosting this challenge! Thank you so much, Mary! Mary is challenging us to Birds of Seasons! Create a card using a bird with a spring, summer, winter, or fall theme. You can go with any occasion that is associated with the season (i.e. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Patriotic, etc) you choose. Or, you can create a card for birthdays, weddings, or events you need that occurs during the season you choose. Each card must have at least one bird. While ODBD stamps are required, an ODBD bird image is not required even though ODBD has a lot of bird images. If you have an ODBD bird image then by all means use it. We would love to see what you create using  Our Daily Bread Design stamps!


For my card, I am using ODBD  In God We Trust and God Bless America (sentiment) stamp sets.    I decided to go with a transitional summer to fall patriotic theme with Labor Day just around the corner!  I stamped the the image of the eagle and colored.  I then masked the sentiment and stamped so that it would fit into the circle.  I am using the sketch from Truly Scrumptious: Sketch with optional buttons, bows, and brads.   I used the distressing tool for the edges around my focal piece.  I used a charm, a button, ribbon, and gold pearls to finish my card.  I am using the Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Triggers for my inspiration. I tried to convey some of the fabulous patterns and textures while leaning more to the lighter side of the amber and teal colors.  I used Tim Holtz distressing tool around the focal image edges.  This card is also for the Spectacular Sunday Challenge Buttons and Bows!  I used some of my fav seam tape with a layer of champayne silk ribbon underneath.  I only used one button, but I used gold thread to attach my cross charm to the button.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
