For the Love

Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week's hop is special since Our Daily Bread Designs is celebrating it's fifth year anniversary.  One of the gifts for a fifth year anniversary is wood.

If you get lost along the way, each stop will have a full list of links.  One of the posts is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, March 27th, at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Wood!

If you got here from the wonderfully talented Connie' blog, you are in the right place. 






For my card I am using ODBD As You Graduate for the focal image.  I stamped the background in a soft aqua color.  I stamped the sentiment using Memento tuxedo black.   I decided to add a little bit of flair using the ODBD Blessed Christmas set set(yes...Christmas in March and without a Christmas theme) along with the ODBD custom Poinsettia die. As you see I only used the curly cue leaves and vines on the edges of the poinsettia to tuck under the frame.  Love using stamps and dies in different waysI stamped, die cut, and added some glitter.  Next, I decided to add a butterfly. I chose the butterfly single image. I stamped in Memento ink, die cut with the ODBD custom butterfly die.  I colored with copics and added some glitter.   I finished the card with a seam binding bow in soft green with a glittered button.




As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the fabulously talented  Tosh's blog!
