ODBD Designer's Favorites Flower Hunt Game!

 
Welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Designers Favorites Flower Hunt Game!  Today, One Dozen of the Bread Sticks are sharing projects, and our top 4 favorite ODBD sets to celebrate the 4th anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs. Since flowers are one of the traditional gifts for a 4th Anniversary, we have decided to shower ODBD with a bouquet of flowers.  These flowers are randomly placed on SIX of the designers blog sidebars labeled  Designer's Flower Hunt Game with the name of a flower.  Look for the Flower Badges as you make your way through the participating designers blogs listed below, be sure to write down the designers name and flower found on their blog, you'll need it to enter the random drawing. 


Onto my card using some of my favorites:

The inside of the card:

My card started from a die cut scrap which formed the window in my card.  I decided to showcase my favorite ODBD image from the beautiful Faith set.  The image is stamped using brown ink.   The sentiment is from another favorite set: As  You Graduate. The image on this set is gorgeous and the sentiments are perfect for anyone starting out on something new and unknown.  I stamped the sentiment using the same brown ink.

The front of the card is stamped with the elegant Brocade Background stamp using Memento Bamboo Leaves.  This stamp is always out on my desk as it makes an elegant touch to any card.  The edges of the front panel were sponged with brown dye ink and finished with white acrylic paint.  The cardbase is brown and the frame accented with some flowers and flourishes. 

Background stamps are always on my favorite list.  To finish off my ODBD favorites I picked the Honeycomb background.  The Honeycomb background is versatile because of the clean lines and graphic design. 

Now, I'll send you on your way.  (Hint: Don't forget to take a look around my blog for a lovely flower)

Grace * Patter * Angie * Chris * Sabrina * Lori * Fran * Lisa * Connie * Sue (you are here) * Debi * Gemiel

After you've finished the hop, left comments and found the 6 flowers, send an email to Grace with the names of the Six Designers and the Flowers they had on their sidebars.   THREE random winners from all correct emails will win one FREE ODBD SET of your choice!  All emails must be sent by March 15th, 9:00 PM DST.  Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog March 19th .

Thanks for stopping by!

What an impressive card. The flowering branches and butterflies are beautiful and the verse by Corrie ten Boom is rich. I love the way you put that on the inside and had the front cut out to reveal it. What a good idea that I always forget to try. Thanks for the inspiration.

Sue this is... Beautiful! I love the sentiment it has so much meaning. This is by far my fav sentiment seen so far. Gorgeous us of the flowers.

Traci S. said...

Spectacular, Suzanne! This is an amazing card! I love how you gave this card a seperate cover of sorts. I love how you used the brown ink and the white paint on the top piece. The flowers and leaves, pearls and flourishes are amazing and set the feeling for the beauty of the inside of the card.

This is such a wise selection of words. So true. A wonderful stamp. And, the way you made the sheer flowers pop-up over the stamped butterflies in the same colors! That is an amazing look!

Thank you for sharing your techniques with us, and the beauty of this card. God bless!

Your colors are so calm and reassuring. Though I still am not sure what you used as a background for the front of the card. It reminds me of Spanish moss. I love window cards, and yours is one of my favorites!

Dina Kowal said...

HOW did I miss this one before? GORGEOUS framing, and I love the white space when the card is open!
