Welcome to ODBD's SECOND OCT. Release!

ODBD stamps: Poinsettia Ornament, Christmas Pennant Row, designed by Grace Nywening

Hello friends!  Welcome to a Surprise Second ODBD Release for October!

Just as in the first release, Kelley is giving prizes for this second release! 

Three winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on the designers blogs to receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the ODBD Store, to be used toward the purchase of ODBD Stamps. You have until October 15, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. EDT to leave your comments on our Designers Blogs for a chance to win!  The Winners will be posted on the ODBD Blog on October 16th, so be sure to check back there to see if you won!
For my card today, I used the Oct. 1 release, Poinsettia Ornament, and I coupled that with today's release,  Christmas Pennant Row, which fits perfectly the previously released Pennant Row Dies.  I cut my Poinsettia Ornament out with the Oct. 1 release, Matting Circle Dies, and then matted that with brushed gold which I cut with a previous release, Circle Ornament Dies.  I also used the ODBD Beautiful Border Dies.  
To create this card I stamped the poinsettia with Memento and colored with Copics.   I used R81, R85, RV000, G20, G43,  G94, Y11.  I also used a gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen to add sparkle to the poinsettia, but unfortunately I can't seem to capture that on the photo. I cut the ornament with this month's Matting Circle dies.  I used some Martha Stewart brushed gold to mat the ornament, cutting it with a past release, Circle Ornament Dies.  I used a base of Neenah Solar White, and then some design paper from an My Mind's Eye 6x6 pack Tis the Season, and from another MME pack, Merry Little Christmas.  I then embossed both papers with Sizzix folders, and then rubbed with SU! inks direct to the embossing.  I cut a Beautiful Border from white and matted the green panel with it, and added that to the red.  Then I stamped the PEACE banner with Primrose Petals ink, cut with the ODBD Custom Pennant Row Dies, and added to the bottom of the card.  The die row was longer than I needed or fit this orientation of the card, so I cut off the outside two pennants and cut the little white bow off, and then added that back on to the end of my pennant row.  The poinsettia panel is popped up on dimensionals.

Here is the new set I used from this release today:
