Welcome to the Anniversary Blog Hop at Our Daily Bread Designs!

Welcome!  Grab a cup of joe and settle in because today we are having an Anniversary Party!  Our Daily Bread Designs celebrates 7 years of doing business!  And to mark this milestone, seven randomly selected winners will each receive one of the new ODBD Anniversary stamp sets just for commenting on the Design Team cards!  You have until March 19, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on the Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on March 20th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!

Did you notice, I mentioned NEW Anniversary stamp sets?  Yep, you heard right.  ODBD has a special release (2 stamps sets) to mark this milestone.  And I am pleased as punch to share them with you.  My first project (or pink palooza) features the new set, God Verses.
  

Today's card measures 5.5 x 4.25 inches.  I started with a white card stock base and added a soft pink layer using ODBD's Flourished Star Pattern Die.  I added a soft rose paper from the Shabby Rose Paper Collection and chose soft gingham and wicker weave print (also from this collection) for my layers.  A bit of faux lace compliments of the Beautiful Borders Die peeks out from behind the wicker DP with just a sprinkle of pink adhesive backed pearls for glitz.  I die cut my scripture panel with ODBD's Pennant Die and added a flourish of DP blossoms created with the Asters and Leaves Die set.  And a fancy flourish isn't complete without greenery created with the Fancy Foliage Die and a fun pink pearl flourish layered up for added interest.  

So here's the new God Verses set...


But there is more!  I told you there were TWO sets...  
So here is my second card featuring the new God Quotes set...


This time, I started with a black card stock base (5.5 x 4.25 inches) and added a white mat.  This card features some beautiful chalkboard DP from ODBD's Chalkboard Paper Collection.  I chose to stamp my sentiment on a clean white panel and accent it with a blinged out star (created by nesting two die from the Sparkling Stars Die.  After cutting the star out of chipboard, I added white paint, distress crackle and a bit of crystal coarse glue.  A tiny mulberry rose and greenery from the Fancy Foliage Die fill out the additional space.  

So here's the new set...
