Happy Anniversary ODBD

Our Daily Bread Designs is celebrating their 1 year Anniversary! Congrats Kelley, I'm so proud of you and happy for your success!! As a former DT member, I have the honor of taking part in the celebration! Be sure to check out all the posts this week for your chance to win some fun prizes :)

I used the gorgeous Light Of The World set for my first card. It was the very first set that Kelley released one year ago, and still one of my favorites. That scripture is one of my favorites too!! I colored the lighthouse image with Copic Markers, then painted on some highlights with Shimmerz. Angel did a tutorial on Shimmerz yesterday...you can check it out right HERE! She did a wonderful job of showing a variety of techniques and ways to use Shimmerz! I added Crystal Effects to create "glass" for the lighhouse. You can double click on the photo to see those shimmery/shiny details.The new Parisian Breeze Specialty DP from SU worked beautifully for both my cards. I really like Baja Breeze & Chocolate Chip together.
For my second card I used the Sing To The Lord set! I plan on stamping a scripture inside the card...there are several great choices...so I can select one specially for the person I send the card to. You can check out the entire set, including the scriptures and sentiment right HERE :) !

This little bird and branch create such a beautiful springtime image. Perfect for this time of year. I used Copic Markers BG72, R81, 83 & 85, Y35, E31, E25, YG95 & C1. The new SU Eyelet Border Punch provided a nice soft touch, along with the White & Pink Taffeta Ribbons. And the finishing touches were the Dew Drops.

That's about it for me. I hope you enjoy hopping around to the ODBD blogs this week and be sure to get signed up for those prizes!! Thanks for stopping by :) Happy Wednesday!
