ODBDSLC46..........Blue, blue everywhere

Hello and happy Saturday my stamping friends!! Are you in the mood for a blue card today?

This week's Challenge:

ODBDSLC46 “The blues” Now that the holidays are over and winter is beginning to drag on…we want to see blue on your creation (not just a little…a lot…as a main color)

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, February 3rd 2011. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by February 3rd 2011, at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC46. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.

You always have such pretty embellishments and I love the way you put different layers together.

Conniecrafter said...

Oh my gorgeous, that's what I hate about living so far from family, unless I want to pay huge postage for a card, I have to keep them quite thin, love your layering of the sentiment too!

velta said...

Oh my friend Selma~This is lovely...My first thought was "where did she get that ribbon?" Then I read that you used hand dyed seam binding...I have never tried it difficult? At any rate, it is beautiful, so fluffy! TFS!!!

Heather Rogers said...

Lots of beautiful layers of SB dies and pretty flowers. Lovely sentiment too. :)
Congrats on winning Top3 at CR84FN!
