Here is my card:
Our Daily Bread Design's stamp set: Sing For Joy
Inspiration: High flying!

The ODBD Sing For Joy image was stamped, colored using copic markers and cut out using Spellbinder's Classic Ovals. I stippled the oval using brush and apricot appeal. The leaves for the background were done using Spellbinders Foliage Die Cut, also stippled with apricot appeal. The background was embossed using Sizzix E/F and also stippled. A Prima Rose and pearls were added.

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

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to hug a loved one! Have a fabulous weekend! Hugs!
