Please see ODBD Blog for all the details!

Here is my creation!

N - Nesties = O - Ovals, ODBD = E - embossing = L - layers

After stamping the sweet little bird from  ODBD "You Will Find Refuge",  it was colored using copics, cut out, and popped up! The background was embossed using a Sizzix E/F. A Spellbinder's Nestie was used to cut the oval for the center. The sentiment is from ODBD'S Scripture Series 2! I added color to some of the embossed leaves at the bottom and some red stickles for berries at the top of the D/P!



Please stop by to see what the ODBD challenge team have created!






We hope you will play along with us! We would love to see your creations!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to hug your loved ones!

Hope you have a beautiful weekend! Hugs!

Fran, how perfect this is in its simplicity - just playing with this chickadee image myself - we must both be dreaming of springtime! Love the framing technique you used for the Scripture! Hugs!

You are SO good with putting different elements together and this card, wow, it is absolutely amazing!! Love the way you have colored that chickadee I can't get him to look anywhere close to that!!
