It has been a week for surprises! First the Featured Stamper, then a Mojo Monday winner and although I knew about this little surprise a little while ago, today I could finally spill the beans! I am the hostess for Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time on Assignment Challenge(SNTODBD12)!! Imagine my excitement when Betty emailed and asked me if I’d like to participate—of course I said YES! It is a two-week challenge, so you have lots of time to play! I chose to make this an inspiration challenge, and here is my inspiration piece:
My niece-to-be received a beautiful Vera Bradley bag at her bridal shower in this pattern….I found out the name of it is “Make Me Blush”!! (I thought that was quite funny!) So the challenge is to create a card, project or scrapbook page using a selection of these colors.
I used almost all the colors in the fabric, along with a verse from Scripture Collection 2:
On each panel, I stamped a floral image from SU’s Watercolor Trio in matching ink, then stamped over it with the retired Linen background stamp :
I heat embossed the butterflies in white craft ink and white EP; then added some swirls and pearls, using some Basic Grey Stella Ruby paper. I also stamped some flowers on the panel using markers. The whole shebang is finished off with Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon. I hope this card will be an encouragement to the recipient! After all, that’s why we make cards in the first place, right? Here are a few other ODBD designers who are also participating in the challenge:
And thanks to Betty and all the ODBD crew for asking me to host! Such a blessing they are! Now let’s see what you can create; post your project over on the ODBD blog--I can’t wait to see what you come up with!!
