This my card!


I first stamped Bird Borders and Corners and a verse from Scripture Collection 6 then cut out and  framed them using Spellbinders Nestibilities Lables 18! The fancy scrolls on the top and bottom of the frame were added using Spellbinders Fancy Lables 2! Flower Soft  was added to give a little color to the limb! The background was done by stamping  the branch then embossing with clear e/p. Ribbon from Mikes was added!

This is a picture of the inside!


Please stop by to see what the ODBD Challenge Team have created:

We hope you will join in on the fun and play along with us!

Have a beautiful weekend! Hugs!
