Bright and Beautiful

Good Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
Got in some playing time this morning! Yay!

I checked out the Inspiration Challenge for today and chose this adorable bedding to use as the inspiration for this card. I loved the bold bright colors of the bedding. I'm sneak peeking a new set to be released January 1st by Our Daily Bread designs called Noah's Ark.

By the way, stay tuned to the ODBd Blog for upcoming surprises
beginning in January!
Exciting things coming soon!!!

The base card is 5x5 American Crafts textured cards I picked up recently at Hobby Lobby. The designer paper is Raspberry Tart from StampinUp! which I've used with Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red, Cameo Coral and Whisper White. The Cameo Coral layer is distressed with my distressing tool. I cuttlebugged the designer paper with the Victoria folder. Each sentiment is stamped in Memento Black. I cut the main sentiment out with Spellbinders rectangles and popped it up with foam tape. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the Welcome Baby! sentiment. I used Martha's lacy punch and the EKSuccess scallop border punch. This gorgeous Prima flower matches so pretty with this paper and helps to make this card nice and girly. The leaves are made with StampinUp's 5 Petal punch. I added Zva pearls to finish the card.

Don't forget to visit with us on January 1st!
Gorgeous new sets to be released,

I wanted to mention something else. I was recently asked to be a designer for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot! I am very excited about this new opportunity, so stay tuned for that!

And I also want to say how much I appreciate all of you for following

I hope you all have a New Year full of God's many blessings!
