ODBDSLC 187-Inspiration Challenge

Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for this week is a picture and you can find it on their blog here .

I used the picture on the right for my inspiration.  I just love those colored jars and the pretty flowers with them. I sprinkled gems around like they have on the table, some of them I colored with markers. The die I used for the background I went with the color of the jar.

Vellum w/Adriondack Stream Alcohol ink and blending solution
ODBD-- Quaterfoil pattern die
ODBD -- All Occasion sentiment stamps
Spellbinder-- Cherry Blossom die and grommet tags dies
Recollectons -- Button Brads

The flowers have been inked around the edges and I used a red marker for the centers. 

If you would like to play along with their challenge you have until Sunday to make your card.

Today was my last demo at Michaels with the Spellbinders dies, I will miss the excitement people have when they see a demo for the first time. I appreciate Spellbinders giving me the opportunity to do the demonstrations.  Ever since my daughter has been in school, I have either volunteered for things at school, and when she got older I do all my volunteering at church now, so it was good to get out and work outside the home again.

We did hit above freezing today but it is suppose to be up and down for the next week, hope your all staying warm.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Oh, Connie, I just love your card and knew right away which inspiration photo you chose! I love your branch and blossoms against the Quatrefoil die! And the sentiment is perfectly placed! So glad you've joined us once again this week for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge! Warm hugs, sweet friend!

Connie you are such an inspiration! Love your card and how you showcase the spellbinders dies so beautifully. We finally came out of the deep freeze temps as well but they will be short lived.. Living on the coast, weather changes at a moments notice lol... Take care and stay warm my friend. Xx

Connie, you did such a good job of capturing the look of the inspiration photo. Those cherry blossoms are a beautiful reminder of spring. However, I would like to have winter, first. Still waiting here.
