Now on to my project:

 
 If you have been keeping up with our sneak peeks, you already know how gorgeous the sets are this month!  My card today features the set called The Lord Has Risen.  The violets are gorgeous and there are three scriptures included.  I included the close up photo above, hoping you'll be able to see the violets better. I stamped the image a second time so that I could layer the violets.  After coloring them, I turned them over onto a piercing mat and ran my stylus on the backside to give them rounded petals.  I also did this with some of the leaves.  Then I turned the violets back over and with the same stylus pushed in the center of each flower.  I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist and added pearls.  I also did the Out of the Box Nestie technique, which I have never done!  I followed a great tutorial by my friend and DT sister, Julie Warner!  After I finished though, I felt the card needed one more thing, so I cut out a very slim oval using two Spellbinders ovals and added the brown frame.  So that's it!  Here are all the supplies I used for this card:

SU! Kraft, Almost Amethyst, Kraft designer paper
Brown paper from Archiver's
Memento Brown Ink
Versamark, Clear embossing powder and Heat Tool
Copic Markers
Spellbinders Oval and Scalloped Ovals
SU! ribbon
Pearls
Stylus Tool and Bow Easy


Now before you go, I want to tell you about the exciting events we have planned for you this month!  

March 17 is the Second Anniversary of  Our Daily Bread designs, and we are celebrating!!!

Be sure to check the ODBD Blog on Sunday, Mar. 7!  We will be announcing fun challenges that will run Mar. 13 - 16 so you can get a jump on them.... Then beginning on Sat. Mar. 13, we will be announcing a daily challenge and there will be wonderful prizes EVERY DAY!  On Mar. 17 we will have another Blog Hop, revealing the Special Edition Anniversary Release!  I hope we'll see you then!!!

I hope you enjoyed my project, and now I'll send you on to Connie to see some more springy inspiration!
