The Sower of Good Seed...

Tiger-Lily

Hello friends!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend and are refreshed and ready for the week ahead!  Today I'm sharing a card I made using Our Daily Bread designs newest release, Tiger Lily and The Good Seed.  I made it for a couple of challenges:  ODBD's Shining The Light Challenge (to use dots or stripes) and the sketch is from Sketch & Stash.

Tiger-Lily-FS-detail

I used Bo Bunny Forever Fall designer paper, colored the image with Copics and then sponged with Distress inks around all my layers, including the image.  I added Ultra Fine Black Flower Soft to the stamens of the lilies.   I dyed Martha Stewart seam binding (spritzed the orangish shade with Mustard Seed Glimmer Mist, crinkled up, dried and tied.  The little watering can is a brad from my stasgh, and the bling was from ACMoore quite a long time ago.  I did some piercing around the edges of the card and the image is popped up on dimensionals.  Hope  you like it!

I am also entering this in the following challenges:
Bearly Mine -Flowers Flowers Flowers, Creative Card Crew -  Anything Goes, Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes, Ribbon Carousel Challenge - must include ribbon - Anything Goes, Craft Your Passion - Flowers, Crafty Boots Anything Goes, Happileigh Scrappin - SIO - Autumn/Fall (Colours: Brown, Orange), Woodware USA -  Anything Goes, Aly's Sunday Challenge - Bows, Pile It On - B is for....
