My First ODBD Challenge, ODBDSLC220 Sketch

     I'm so tickled to get to play along with Our Daily Bread Designs!  With the help of a prize gift certificate, I recently got the "Flourished Verses" stamp set, and it is beautiful.  I've only used one stamp so far, but made 5 different cards.  So versatile!     Sketch challenges may just be my favorite.  Besides the lovely stamps, I used some paper that came with an issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, published in the UK.  So I pretty much won the stamps, and the paper was free, kinda.  :o) 
     I love to try new techniques and this one was new for me.  I'm not a "colorer," but I heat embossed the verse and a tree from Sizzix on vellum and colored it with Marvy LePlume II pens and clear Wink of Stella.  Love the sparkle, but that part didn't photograph well. 
I added a "Happy Birthday" tag to some, "Thank you" tags to others.  I think "Thinking of you" or "Missing you" would work well, too.  And this is just the first stamp!  I will get so much use from this great set!  Thank you, ODBD!  And thanks for the fun of playing along!


  1. I love it, Suzi! Great take on the sketch. Love your vellum tree. I know how hard it is to capture the sparkle with a photograph, but I can see it in my imagination.

  2. Yay, Suzi! So glad you are here! ODBD is one of my favorite places to play! Your card is wonderful, as always! Love the colors, and your vellum tree is fabulous. Just so so happy you are joining in here. Looking forward to your next challenge here. Love you lots!

  3. This may be a dupe...sorry, it logged me out of comments. I love the card, so awesome that the stamp is proving so versatile. Awesome take on the sketch.

  4. I am so glad you were able to join us for your first ODBD challenge!! What a gorgeous take on the sketch with the vellum, colors and combo of patterns. Hope you are able to join us again!!


  5. Oh, Suzi, it's so wonderful you've finally joined us for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge! A big and warm welcome!
