Blue Morning Glories

Our Daily Bread designs stamps, Morning Glory, Quatrefoil Pattern Die, designed by Grace Nywening
Hello my friends!  If you love morning glories as much as I do, you are loving this new set from Our Daily Bread designs!  It's called Morning Glory, and it has some wonderful sentiments and verses to fit in the sweet little post card of the image. I cut this image with SB Labels 26, which it was custom made to fit.   This brings back so many memories for me, as my Grandfather always planted blue morning glories on the back fence of his house in R.I.  While vegetable gardening was much more "his thing", every year those morning glories captured my heart.  I have matted my image with SB Labels One and inside I have used a gorgeous die also just released this month, Quatrefoil Pattern.  This is a beautiful A2 sized die which makes a beautiful card all by itself, but it also looks pretty on any card stock to pop your background a bit.  This was cut out of white card stock and then cut with the SB Labels One.  The base of this card is the pretty Grand Decorative Labels One by SB. The image is colored with Copics.  The sheer ribbon is May Arts and I added some blue bling to finish it off.

Here are the ODBD products I used:







I hope you have enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed creating it and remembering someone very special to me!
