For the Love of.......Animals

 Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of Animals! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links.  One of the post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, November 7th at 6 pm (US EST).   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Animals!

If you've arrived here from Deb's blog, then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to start back at the ODBD Blog so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the way.  I've chosen Noah's Ark for my card today, as soon as I heard the hop was Animal themed, I thought, what could be more perfect than an Ark full of animals in the Noah's Ark stamp set!!  :)
Today I've started with a base of blue bazzill and layered with white (pierced) and some DCWV paper.  Next I've stamped the Noah's Ark in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics and cut out with scissors.  This was popped up on foam tape over the embossed Labels 1 and Decorative Labels 1 panel.  To finish I've added a blue ribbon, blue bow and a notched tag using the sentiment from the same stamp set.

Stamps - Noah's Ark (ODBD)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Blue Bazzill, White, DCWV Nana's Nursery
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Labels 1 and Decorative Labels 1 Nestabilities, Bricks and Bark Mbossibilities, Blue Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Scissors, X-press It High Tack Foam Tape.

Your next stop is the lovely and amazingly talented SILKE!

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and enjoy the hop!

Hi Kathy,
What a delightful card and what beautiful colours you've used! Baby cards can sometimes be so 'pastel' and this eye-popping blue is just fabulous! I love the way the ark really seems to be 'floating' on the water with the embossed panel behind really making it stand out. Great colouring and use of the pretty ribbons and papers. Lovely!
