So this challenge is called
Three For Thee!

2. Link your card to the ODBd Blog by Thurs Sept. 17, 8PM EST. Winners will be announced on the ODBd blog on Sat. Sept. 19.

3. Anyone can play along, but only those using ODBd Stamps as the main focal point will be eligible to win.

4. Be sure to visit the ODBd Blog on Sept 19 to find out who won!

Ok, so let's get started!

I made a pocket card using this wonderful tutorial in the resources section of SCS. I started with a sealed envelope (4 3/4 x 6 1/2). I cut off one end about 1 3/4 and then punched the border with an EKSuccess border punch. I stamped the image from the Thinking of You set on the top portion and then one from the Get Well set on the lower portion first with ODBd Olive ink before running the lower portion through my crimper. Then I sponged front and back with ODBd Victorian Rose and Terracotta inks. I also sort of tapped the sponge in places which gave it the speckled look. I stamped the butterflies again with the rose ink and cut them out and glued in place. Then I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black and cut it out with the Labels Four Spellbinders die. I sponged and also stamped just the swirls before taking it out of the die. I placed the SU! ribbon and then added the label with foam tape. I added the cross charm with silver cord. The Hero Arts Flowers are colored with a copic marker #RV14 and added to the swirls on the label. Then I added Hero Arts pearls to finish the pocket.

Here is a photo of the card opened slightly.

And now for the insert,
I stamped the sentiment and the swirls and then sponged all around again
and added it to SU! Old Olive paper.
And that's it!

Now it's your turn to play!

Go check out these creations from some of the other breadsticks!
They're gonna leave you speechless!

I hope you enjoy the challenge as much as I have and let us see your work!
