Praying for You!

 Hello friends!  

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs  May Release. 

I created this card using Good Day and Medallion Sentiments for my stamps.  I used the new Pierced Circles dies and the Pierced Rectangle Dies (on the main printed panel) as well as the new Pierced Ovals dies (for the sentiment).  I fussy cut the image after stamping with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and coloring with Copics.  I mounted it on the pierced circle panel using foam tape for dimension.  I matted the pierced circle panel with a Matting Circle Ornament die, using some of the last bits of cherished Sage Shadow card stock I have, and added a cream colored Doily Die cut behind that.    The design paper for this card is all from the ODBD Cozy Quilt Paper Collection and I used the colors in it to choose my Copics and the tiny flowers cut with a die from the Flower Box Fillers die set.  I colored them with Copics and added a tiny red rhinestone.  I added a leafy flourish from the Fancy Foliage Die set.  I finished off with a wrinkled seam binding bow.  

Here are the new ODBD release products I used on this card:


For those of you wanting an update on my health.... I continue to recover nicely.  I start 6 weeks of Radiation next week (30 treatments, 5 days a week).  It's phase 3 of this process and the last of the really intense treatments.  I'm so thankful for this time of recovery between chemo/surgery and radiation, but I look forward to getting started too so I can be done!!!  Thanking the Lord for His mercies and love!  Thank YOU all who have been praying for me!!!  I know He has heard and answered!!!

Thanks so much for taking a peek today!  I hope you've enjoyed my sample and to view the other DT creations, please visit the ODBD Blog, and stop at the links below:

Oh, Grace, what an absolutely gorgeous card, and I too love how you've woven the beautiful ribbon through the foliage. And your fussy cutting of this beautiful vintage hanging hat is perfection. Such a gorgeous card, sweet friend! And praise God for how He has continued to encourage and strengthen you through this long and arduous battle. I continue to pray for you, precious friend, and know that you are so eager to start and then finish this radiation. Love you dearly! Hugs! xoxo
