Happy Thursday Everyone!

It's time for another Our Daily Bread Designs Stamping In Time (SNTODBD28)!

Wanda Cullen is our host this rotation. Wanda's challenge "It's a Distress Call"! It's a challenge with a twist. You may use any distressing techniques such as tearing, sponging, sanding, crumpling, etc., but the twist is to actually mail your card to encourage someone who has some real life distress going on and could use a little encouragement. We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps. 

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Here is my card!

The sentiment is from ODBD's "God Loves You"! The border was embossed using an SU embossing folder. The flower was done using a McGill flower petal punch, a leaf diecut and a M/S fern punch. I distressed the flower petals and leaves using a styliss and also distressed the edges with ink. 
 My card will be sent to a friend who's husband was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. 

Please stop by to see what some of the talented ODBD Bread Sticks have created:
