Wisdom

March is an exciting month for Our Daily Bread Designs as it celebrates it's fifth year anniversary!! Kelley so appreciates the customers of Our Daily Bread Designs and is excited for the opportunity to celebrate with them today with the ODBD Anniversary Linky Party celebration!!! Below are the links of several fans and customers that have created cards or projects using stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs.
1. Brigita -- GDT 6. Sarah Nelson GDT 11. Lisa Somerville
2. Mary Marsh - GDT 7. Barbara Washington GDT 12. Gerrie Johnnic GDT
3. Karen Wallace GDT 8. Chris Olsen 13. Sandee
4. Lee Ann Barrett- GDT 9. Grace N 14. Sabrina Jackson
5. Connie Griffin GDT 10. Angie Crockett 15. Jennipher GDT

Congratulations to ODBD and Kelley on five great years of stamps. I love ODBD stamps so, of course, I had to participate.

The background panel of my card is watercolor paper. I splashed distress stains on my non-stick surface, spritzed with a little water, and laid the panel in the stains. The stains and watercolor paper make a wonderful background for these beautiful flower corners and sentiment (all ODBD stamps of course).
I am also sharing this card at a few other challenge spots. SweetStamps wants to see green. Simon Says Stamp wants a bit of green. Great Impressions is going green (either use green or recycle). Don't tell anyone, but my watercolor panel is recycled. I had made a mistake on the other side and couldn't use the image, so I turned the panel over and a new card front could be made.

I love this card. Isn't it neat when one can use a mistake somehow. I really like the verse and the image in 2 corners really sets it off nicely.
Great card.
