It is time for Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge(SNTODBD35)!  The assignment is Our Daily Bread Design stamps.   The challenge this rotation is FRAME it out in TEXTURE! Create your own textured frames using embossing folders, embossed stamped images, or cut out embossed designer papers!  We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!

For my card I am using Mother's Day and Mini Tags 2 stamp sets.  I am also using the Poppy die and Vintage Border die.   I am using Prima Reflections designer papers. I layered various patterns of the Prima Reflections papers.  I embossed the floral background as well as the oval background.  I cut out the Vintage Border die with designer paper and backed with black cardstock. I stamped the poppy image several times on designer paper.  I paper pieced sections of the flower and enhance shading with copic markers. I layered a couple of the die cut flowers to create more depth. I finished with  some glitter. 



I wanted to share with you what I am calling my "Product Find of the Week!"   Many of you may know of this wonderful stuff called Memory Thread.  I did not.  I found it while roaming the aisle's at Mike's(aka Micheal's). It comes in many colors, but I was most taken with the metallic gold and silver.  I love to add the curly ques to my bow topper with gold or silver wire cording.  This memory thread is like liquid silver or gold.  It is wonderful!  Thought I would share.  I really need to get this stuff in other colors!
