ODBD Birdie Hop!!

Hello Everyone and welcome to the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog Hop!!  If you came from Connie's Blog you are in the right place!!!  If you didn't, start back at the ODBD Blog so you don't miss any of the beautiful creations along the way!!!  There are four awesome sets released this month which focus on our feathered friends.  Today I am using the set called He Watches Me which features this lovely Sparrow!  I have to say this scripture, the story of the sparrow has always been a favourite of mine!!  I was inspired by this week's SCS Sketch Challenge - the layout seemed so perfect for this set!!

To add more fun to the hop, Kelley of ODBD is giving away THREE prizes of $15 vouchers for ODBD stamps!!!!  All you have to do is comment on each blog and collect the secret words in order to uncover the scripture verse!!!  Once you have the whole verse, pop back to the ODBD blog and send an email to the address provided saying you commented on each blog and what the verse is!!  (If you can't leave a comment on any blog for any reason, just note that in the email and you'll still be eligible.)  My secret words are...... THE BIRDS

On to my card ---- I started with a base of dark purple bazzill and layered with white which has been punched on one side with the Fleur de Lis Border Punch and some Basic Grey Wisteria DSP.  I stamped the sparrow from He Watches Me in Jet Black Stazon and coloured with markers and a blender pen and cut it out using the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities.  Once it was cut out, I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the verse across the bottom.  I attached some light purple ribbon between the image and sentiment and added a bow (made with my Bow Easy) to the side.  To the top corner I added a purple Prima flower and used the Martha Stewart Branch Punch to added some foliage to the sides.  To finish I added a couple of tiny Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the top and bottom corner.

The next stop on the hop is DEB!!!!

Stamps - He Watches Me (ODBD)
Paper - Dark Purple Bazzill, White, Basic Grey Wisteria DSP
Ink - Jet Black Stazon
Accessories - Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities, EK Success Fleur de Lis Border Punch, Markers, Blender Pen, Prima Flower, Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Purple Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting and enjoy the Hop!!!  :)

Dear Kathy,

What a wonderfully purple card! Purple--the color of Majesty. And, that is what it is all about, right?

I love how you punched a stamp up the side of your card. I don't think I have ever seen that approach before. I have never cared much for that punch that came in a set of mine. I have never used it, (I have never known what it stands for), it looks lovely the way you used it!

I can now see how you used the tiny pearls. Wonderful! And, I love how your paper uses the lavender as well--you matched it perfectly with your bow!

He Is Able,
Traci S.
