ODBDSLC #180 - Circle or Square It

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is to create a card with more than three circles or squares, please join us here for all of the details.

When contemplating this challenge, this adorable little chickadee from the ODBD You Will Take Refuge set came to mind, I needed a sentiment that would fit on these small squares, so I pulled out a greeting from the ODBD Holly Wreath set. The bird was colored with Copics and all of the designer paper from the ODBD Christmas Paper Collection 2013 was embossed, distressed and sponged. The squares were all framed with a small Spellbinders scalloped square and a flourish die from the ODBD Custom Fancy Foilage Die set was placed behind the greeting with a twine bow and cherry button.
