ODBD Alumni Team - CHECK IT OUT!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!


First, I want to thank you for leaving so many sweet comments on Sarah's pageant pictures....she was so delighted to read the comments and I know it boosted her ego as well...LOL!!! If you missed them you can see them HERE!!!


You probably have noticed that I'm not participating in the Saturday ODBD Challenge Team posts anymore.....don't worry....I'm still creating for Our Daily Bread Design, just in a different format. We have an *ALUMNI Team* now and you will be excited to see what designers Kelley brought back!!!


Today is our first hop and the theme is *LOVE of Custom Dies Hop*. We all are showing off the fabulous ODBD Custom Dies Kelley carries in the ODBD Store.  Please make sure to start over at the ODDB Blog and then work your way back to me...or if you came directly from KATHY'S Blog then you are right on track!!!


One of the post is a hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate. So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love! You have until February 1st at 6 pm. Winner will be announced February 2nd! So, get hopping and enjoy all the inspiration using for the Love of ODBD Custom Dies!

Here is my idea....





I decided to create a Trifold card using the Crocheted Circle Die and the matching Serve the Lord Set. The image was inked in Memento Black Tuxedo and colored with these Copic Markers ~ E00, R14, R17, YG11 and G21. To cover up the *bleeding* of the coloring I decided to add some Design Paper from the SU Poppy Parade Pattern Design Collection. Since the cut out image was left over I thought it would be perfect for the inside...and added the sentiment from the same Set. To dress the card up a bit I added some scoring and embellished the front with some Silver Pearls, some Black/White Gingham Ribbon as well as some Flowers.


Okay...now it's time to hop on over to my sweet German buddy SABRINA!


Thank you for stopping by today! I'll be back again on Saturday with a new post...see ya then!!!

                                                                   Hugs, ~Silke~
