Lois' Card for ODBD Shining the Light Challenge


Hello everyone~
I just had to share this card with you today, because as you know my sister has been here and we had such a great visit!  We did LOTS of things, but one of the most fun was when we went to my craft room and she really wanted to make a card!  So.... I gave her my new Our Daily Bread designs stamps, paper, ink.... and she went to town!  This is her first ever card!!! Isn't it great???  She used Sewn with Love (from the Blessings Series) and the new Flower Border, made for the Spellbinder's Labels Eighteen!  She also used Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Motifs and an older flourish, as well as Cheery Lynn Mini Butterflies.  She doesn't have a blog.... so I'm posting this for her so she can enter it in ODBDSLC70 sketch challenge, since that's why she made it!  

Thanks so much for stopping and for any encouraging comments you might have for my sis!
