Happy 6th Anniversary Our Daily Bread Designs!

Good morning dear friends!  I have a very special celebration to share.  This month, Kelley and Rick Holland, celebrate 6 years of creating beautiful and inspirational stamps at Our Daily Bread Designs.  It is an honor to work for such a wonderful family and I am blessed to have made so many fabulous friends on this journey!  Happy Anniversary to Kelley, Rick and Our Daily Bread Designs!  Here's to many more to come!
 
Now you can't have an anniversary without a party!  So to celebrate we are having a blog hop!  Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers' blogs.  They will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the ODBD store to be used toward the purchase of ODBD stamps.  ONE LUCKY commenter will be randomly chosen to win the 2014 ANNIVERSARY BUNDLE!!!!!  You have until March 18, 2014 at 9:00PM EDT to leave your comments!  The winners will be posted on the ODBD blog on March 19th.  Be sure to check there to see if you have won! 
 
Each year the team submits a quote, sentiment or scripture that speaks to our heart.  Kelley and crew go to work creating a stamp with the chosen words.  I selected a scripture from the book of Mark that comforts my heart when times are tough...
 

 
I used a couple of layers of pink card stock before adding some lovely designer paper from ODBD's Heart and Soul Collection.  Several layers of white and pink die cuts nestle under the sentiment panel.  A few mulberry roses garnish the side and if you look closely you will see a few pearls scattered around the corners.
 
 
 
 
For my second project I chose a lovely sentiment chosen by one of my team members from the book of Psalms and included in this lovely collection...

 

 
This time I chose a deep pink card stock to coordinate with designer papers from ODBD's Heart and Soul Collection.  Look closely and you will see the Quatrefoil Pattern Die and another classic image Grow in Grace.  I fussy cut bits of a second stamping of the dogwood image and glued them onto the first die cut.  It gives the illusion of the flower going off the page.
 
Here's a closer look.  See the Flower Soft centers? 
 
 
Here are some of the other products I used along with the Scripture Collection 12 set. 
 
 
GROW IN GRACE
 
 
 
 
 
 
Please stop by and visit all of the lovely projects our talented designers have for you today!  (Remember you have a chance to win on some wonderful prizes if  you comment on each post...)  And be sure to wish Kelley and crew a very Happy Anniversary when you stop by ODBD's blog.  If you get lost please pop over there to find your way!  Blessings to you!  I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!

Everytime I try to create a layered card using a heavily patterned background paper it looks too busy. Then I see your cards and it's so perfect! I'm going to have to try again because I'm obviously doing something wrong. Your art works are so beautiful, thank you for the inspiration.
