ODBDSLC254 Our God, We Give You Thanks and Praise Your Glorious Name

Hello Friends!

The new Our Daily Bread Designs "Shining the Light" ODBDSLC254 Sketch Challenge starts today and I incorporated the sketch with the Splitcoaststampers' WT 533 “Favorite Tools” Challenge.

Since I love using die cuts and embossing folders on my cards, my favorite tool is the Big Shot™ and I rarely make a card without it!

I love the verse from the Thank You stamp set along with the picnic basket image and thought that it is so appropriate for many occasions including Thanksgiving (I know, I am a bit early but am trying not to procrastinate as much this year :-)).  I paired it with the beautiful flowers from the Fragrance set (love those roses) along with some distressing.

To create this card:

Stamp the rose image from the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Fragrance along with the verse from ODBD Thank You using Stāz-On® ink onto white cardstock.  The rose was colored with a water brush pen using ink from the ink pads and fussy-cut.   

ODBD Stamps- Fragrance, Thank You; Dies- Ovals, Stitched Ovals, Beautiful Borders, Doily, Paper- Christmas Collection
The verse was cut with the Stitched Ovals Dies and layered onto cardstock cut with the Ovals Dies.

Add a distressed, embossed background panel along with a white doily cut from the Doily Dies (split in two) along with a strip  of gingham paper from the Christmas Paper Collection with the Beautiful Borders Dies and ribbon from my stash.

Add the gold twine and mount the layered verse panel with the fussy cut flower using dimensional foam.  Add a few pearls to finish off the card :-)

I hope you will check out my DT sisters:
