ODBDSLC92 Winter Word Play

Chris has a fun word play challenge for this week's ODBD Shining the Light Challenge! Use three tools or embellishments beginning with three of the letters in the work W-I-N-T-E-R. For my card I chose to use N-Nestabilities, E-Embossing folder and R-Ribbon. My sentiment is from ODBD Simple Things set and then I cut apart the daisy image (after coloring with Copics) from the set called Daisy. I love that this floral image can be so can leave it as is or you can do your own "floral arranging"! I used one of Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday sketches for the layout.

To make the ODBD challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, January 20 at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

Wanda this is absolutely beautiful! I love how you colored the daisies. They remind me of one of my favorite summer flowers, purple coneflowers! And the sentiment you chose is perfect for this springlike feel of this card! I love how you incorporated the flourishes in. It looks the daisies are holding in a secret! Spring maybe?? Blessings and have a wonderful weekend!
