This week we have a fabulous sketch! Don't you just love sketches?

Here is my card!


The sentiment is ODBD's "Faith". After stamping the sentiment was embossed using clear e/p, cut out and framed using  Spellbinders diecuts and Spellbinders Grand Calibur. The flowers were created using McGills floral and leaf punches. The border leaves are also Spellbinders diecuts.

This is the sketch!


The sketch was based on this gorgeous creation by Pat Smethers!


Please stop by and see what beautiful creations the talented ODBD Challenge Team have created!


We hope you will play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous blessed weekend!
