Good morning everyone!

It is time for another Stamping In Time on Assignment Challenge! (SNTODBD16)!

  Mary Marsh is our challenge host this week! Thank you so much, Mary! The assignment is to use ODBD stamps. Mary is challenging us to Birds of Seasons! Create a card using a bird with a spring, summer, winter, or fall theme. You can go with any occasion that is associated with the season (i.e. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Patriotic, etc) you choose. Or, you can create a card for birthdays, weddings, or events you need that occurs during the season you choose. Each card must have at least one bird. While ODBD stamps are required, an ODBD bird image is not required even though ODBD has a lot of bird images. If you have an ODBD bird image then by all means use it. We would love to see what you create with the this seasonal challenge!

Please see  ODBD's Blog for all the details!

This is what I have created:



You can see the embossing a little better on this one!




I chose a Christmas themed card using ODBD's Sing for Joy and Luke 2:11! All images were colored using copics. The poinsettias were stamped several times colored, cut out and popped up. The bird was framed using a  Spellbinder's Nestie! The nestie and background were shadded using a stipple brush! Glitter was added to the florwers! All the images except the bird are embossed!

Please stop by and see what some of the other ODBD team has created:


We hope you can play along!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a fabulous day!
