To enter that drawing, simply leave a comment on the Welcome ODBD Thread by Jan 10! You still have time to be entered so hurry on over and leave us some love!!!
Now on to my card...
I used the Our Daily Bread desingns Jan. release set Confirmation. This set is quite versatile and there are two other sets this month, so be sure to check out all the new releases! I stamped my cross image lightly on Papertry Vintage Cream with River Rock SU! Ink. I stamped it again in Chocolate Chip and just cut out the bird. I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist Pearl. Very sparkly!
The sentiment is part of the God Bless You on your Confirmation sentiment... I masked off to just use the God Bless You and stamped on Vellum, cut with a Spellbinders Double Ended Tag and adhered over the base of the cross with two antique bronze brads.
My card base is Papertrey Dark Chocolate, the matting is River Rock which I embossed with a CB edge EF. I did a matching panel on the inside and stamped the dove on the envelope. I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the pines around my image, and I used Papertrey Perect Match ribbon. The prickly pine boughs made me think of the crown of thorns they placed upon Jesus' head.
