Violet

Good morning!
I'm off to work the church office today, but wanted to share this card.

The challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is a sketch.

Here's what I made, using 'Violet'.


Here's the sketch.

The beautiful sentiment set 'Flourished Verses' had three fun swirley stamps.  I decided to use one of them, rather than paper borders...love the way it turned out, and so quick!  And look at those beautiful layers! Couldn't do that without my trusty Perfect Papercrafting Rulers!  See sidebar for details on how you can get your own and save money!

Still time to enter - hurry over!  I actually won this stamp with my last challenge entry!  Remember...the one I was afraid to enter?  lol...SO glad I did!

Have a great day!
Check back tomorrow for the Operation Write Home 2014 Memorial Day Hop!

Hugs,
Patti J.

I love the way it turned out too Patti! The borders are such a fresh, fabulous approach to adding borders; and such a lovely bunch of violets.

Wow, Patti, this is gorgeous! It happens to be one of my favorite ODBD flowers (and flowers that I enjoy growing too). It's beautifully colored, and what a great idea to use the Flourished Verses as accents - so lovely! And your colors, matting, and ribbon all finish it beautifully! So glad you've joined us this week for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge! Hugs!

Love all of the cards but I think my favorite is the birds in the nest with the red/white/blue - very nice and the super hero is darling.
