Welcome to Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge (SNTODBD22)!  The assignment is Our Daily Bread Design stamps. Lori Ulrich is our challenge host.  Thanks so much Lori for hosting with us.  It is the time here in the states where many people are starting to break out their winter clothing and warm furnishings to prepare for cooler temperatures. Lori is challenging us to think QUILTS. You can create quilted patterns with designer paper, use actual fabrics, create dimension with puff paints,foam dots, or other medium, or even add some stitches real or faux in a variety of frames or patterns. You can also think applique. The main thing is to think QUILTS. If it is used in the designing of a quilt, it works. We looking forward to seeing what you create using Our Daily Bread Design stamps!

For my card I am using ODBD Luke 2:11 and Sing for Joy stamp sets.   I am using the colors from Color Throwdown 118.   I used the Tim Holtz flourished die cut to cut out several white flourishes.  I then adhered to the cherry cobbler cardstock to the white cardstock background and sewing machined stitched around the edge.  I ran through a Sizzix embossing folder. The idea is to give a more "quilt-like" effect since the impression would be softer with two cardstocks instead of one running through at the same time.    I stamped out my sentiment.  I used the pine needles and pinecone image image from the Sing for Joy set.  I did use a bit of green here.   I used my Spellbinder's lacey squares to cut out and decided to put it on a corner placement since I was trying for an applique center medallion type of quilt.  I added my kraft and white horizontal panel and added the black and ivory(to have more kraft) gingham ribbon to the card.  I finished with the bow, a button, and one white halfback pearl.   I chose not to add any more embellishments.  I like the country simplicity of this card.

My card is also for a few more challenges!
