If you arrived here from Betty's blog you are in the right spot! If not, head over to the ODBD blog for a full link list.

I decided to work with the Serve the Lord Set pictured below...


And my project this week...


I began with a simple white card stock base, matting my DP with purple CS. The DP has been both dry embossed and all edges distressed. I stamped my image on Copic compatible paper coloring my Poppies lightly. I used the compatible ODBD die to cut my image out. Before finishing I created a bow with ODBD's Design Team Member Becca Feekan's new Peg Bow Maker. So easy and I love the final results dressed up with a lavender button and baker's twine bow.

Now next on the hop is Sandee. She has a beautiful project to share! Thanks so much for hopping along with us! Blessings!
