It has been awhile since I have had a chance to do the Our Daily bread designs challenge, in this challenge you had to use supplies or techniques using at least 4 letters in the word FLOWER.  You can find out about all the details HERE on their blog .

Since I mainly do birthday cards I had to use a different sentiment then what comes inside this stamp, so I stamped onto typing paper, cut out the words and made a mask to cover that area so I could use the versamark ink only on the image.  I used copper embossing powder for the image.

I used the following letters in this card :

F -- Flourish
O -- Oval die
W -- Washi tape
E-- Embossing powder

Our Daily Bread designs -- Finch collage stamp set, colored with distress inks and copic markers
DCWV -- Natural stack paper
Spare Parts -- Birds cage washi tape
Spellbinders -- classic oval and foliage flourish dies
Stampendous -- Birthday assortment sentiment stamp

This will be going out to my little brother for his birthday.

We went to the flea market this morning, I didn't find anything but it was fun looking through all of the goodies people had.

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
