ODBD Silver/Gold Challenge

Welcome to Day 3 of our special Second Anniversary Celebration at Our Daily Bread designs!  Today, we continue our Anniversary theme. As with all our challenges, it was announced on the ODBD blog on Mar. 7th so you could get a head start, and we hope you had a chance to do that, but if not there is still time!

Silver and Gold are the traditional gifts for those special milestones in a marriage... the 25th and 50th Anniversaries. Today's challenge is to make a project that includes Silver and/or Gold. The only stipulation is that it must be new work, no back links please! Link to the Silver/Gold challenge (posted on the ODBD Blog) in your post, and be sure to link your project to Mr Linky on the ODBD Blog by 8pm USA EST tonight (10AM Tuesday Australian EST)! The winner will be chosen by random and will receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate for stamps from the ODBD Store! The winner will be announced on the ODBD Blog post tomorrow when the next challenge is issued!

Please be sure to visit all the blogs linked below, and leave a comment for each designer, because there is hidden candy on some of the blogs! You will not know where it is, but if your name is chosen and you have left a comment for the designers... you will win it!!! You won't know how many have candy each day... so be sure to visit them all and leave some love! (My Blog is set to Australian EST, so don't worry about the time stamp!)

Winners of the individual blog candy will be announced by the blog owners who had the candy on the next day on their blogs. There will also be a big announcement on March 19th here on the ODBD Blog recapping ALL the winners... the challenges, the blog candy, and the blog hop winners! So be sure to check back there then!!!

*If uploading to SCS or other on line gallery, please use key word ODBD2AC3 so we can find your creations!!

Here's some details on my card today....
I've used a base of purple bazzill, layered with white and some silver card, topped with more purple embossed with Swiss Dots EF.  The next panel is a piece of Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue DSP that has silver foil embossing on it matted with more white.  The feature panel is white cut with the Lattice Pendant die topped with 2 purple bazzill die cuts using large and small circle nestabilities.  Between the Pendant and the circles is a piece of wide Silver satin ribbon.  The beautiful violets are from the new ODBD set called The Lord is Risen, stamped twice in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with markers and a blender pen and cut them out and stuck them to the top of the circle panel. I then cut the flowers from the second piece and popped them up on top.  To finish I added some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners and a large silver bow made with my Bow Easy!  The inside is decorated using more white, purple bazzill punched with the MS Arch Lattice Punch, more Lilac Avenue DSP, on of the other dies also from the Lattice Pendant Spellbinders set, Petite Oval Nestabilities and the verse also from The Lord is Risen.

Stamps - The Lord is Risen (ODBD)
Paper - Purple Bazzill (2 shades), White, Kaisercraft Lilac Avenue DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
