Our Daily Bread Designs Aug. Release Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to Our Daily Bread design's Aug 1 release blog hop! If you are looking for the Stampin Sisters in Christ post, it is one post below.

I am the first stop on the hop today, so if you get lost along the way or any links are broken, just return to the ODBD Blog for the next person in line! We hope you enjoy this months sets as much as we do!!! I can tell you that these will be among my favorites for sure!

This month Kelley is giving away THREE Gift Certificates of $15.00 toward stamps at the ODBD Store! To make it a little more fun ... the prizes are hidden on three different blogs and you won't know which ones, so be sure to leave a comment on each DT blog, because three blog owners will be choosing a winner from their commenters now through Aug 2, 8pm Eastern! So grab your favorite beverage and enjoy the hop! Be sure to return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment there that you completed the hop and left comments for everyone, noting there if there were any you could not comment on. The hop will close at 8pm eastern tomorrow night (Aug 2). The winners will be announced Tues. on the ODBD Blog!

For my card today, I used the new ODBD set called Harvest Blessings. I just love these sunflowers and they are so easy to color! I used Copics for mine and then highlighted with Stickles on the flower centers. My border frame is a Spellbinders Borderability, Lotus Blossom. I had to cut and piece it a bit to get it to fit. I cut it out twice: once in wheat and once in chocolate and then put the chocolate pieces in the centers of the wheat lotus die cuts to replicate sunflowers.

Here are the supplies I used on this card:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Harvest Blessings
Ink: Memento
Paper: Memory Box Wheat, Papertrey Dark Chocolate, SU! Mellow Moss, Neenah white
Accessories: Spellbinders Lotus Blossom Borderability and Fancy Tags, Stickles, Gold Pearls, May Arts Ribbon

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my project today. From here, hop over to the talented and sweet Angie to be inspired and blessed!
