Happy Saturday everyone! It's another beautiful day in the neighborhood! It will been in the 80's again today! Wahoo!

This week the challenge team is challenging you to an April Fools Stitching
Challenge. Will you fool us with faux stitching or use real stitching on your card?

To make the challenge even more fun, ODBD 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 Thursday, April 8 at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

                                                 Here is my creation for todays challenge!



This beautiful image "Happy Mothers Day" is a new release from ODBD
The wreath was stamped several times, colored using copic markers, cut out, embossed using versamark and clear embossing powder, cut out and popped up! The stitching on the back ground was done using a sewing machine! The background panel was scored using a Scorepal! The decorative corner treatment was done using a Cuttlebug and C/B diecut. TFL!

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the details!


Check out the rest of the Design Teams creations!


Thanks for stopping in! I hope you have a marvelous weekend! Happy and Blessed Easter!
