Welcome to the ODBD July Blog Hop


Good morning! 

Welcome to the July 1 Our Daily Bread designs release day blog hop!  
I am your first stop today, so if you landed here from the ODBD blog you are in the right place! 
If not, you might want to start at the ODBD Blog
where you will see the entire list with links just in case any are broken along the way!

The Hop will run 8am EDT July 1 til 8pm EDT July 2.
The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on July 3.
There will be FOUR great prizes!
Three Prizes of One Free Set of Choice
AND
One Grand Prize of the complete Bread Basket Bundle!

Here is what you have to do to be qualified to win one of these prizes:

Hop to each designer’s blog and leave a comment.   Return to the Our Daily Bread designs blog and leave a comment telling us that you completed the hop, making note if there were any you could not comment on. Answer the question on the ODBD blog in your comment on the ODBD blog (not all the designers blogs).
Ok, now for the details of my card!
I am featuring the newest addition to the Garden collection!  The beautiful Hydrangea!  This is absolutely one of my most favorite flowers so I am excited!  I stamped the image twice and colored each one with copic markers in various shades of blues, lavenders, and greens.  I cut out the flowers from one of the colored images and I popped them up over the other image with really thick pop dots.  The background is a piece of K&Co designer paper.  I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Victoria  and sponged with SU! white and Bordering Blue inks.  On one edge of the border I punched with Martha's fence punch.  The opposite edge is embossed with one of Cuttlebug's Ironworks borders, leaving enough room for the ribbon.  I made the bow with my Bow Easy.  I added some pretty pearl swirls and three white Martha butterflies.  
To complete my card, I spritzed it with Marshmallow Glimmer Mist! 

So glad you are spending time with us today!  

Your next stop on the hop is the very talented and lovely


Enjoy your day!!!
