ODBDSLC #185 - 2-0-1-4 Recipe Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is a 2-0-1-4 Recipe challenge, use each number in the recipe, I used:

2 - dies
0 - lace
1 - bow
4 - pearls
Please join us here for all of the details.

The New Year brings many firsts, so I chose the crocus, which is the first flower to bloom in my yard each year. I chose a lavender cardstock, inked an embossing folder and created a background for my heat embossed watercolored flowers.

Our Daily Bread Designs: Crocus 2

Other Supplies: Cheery Lynn doily die, Spellbinder circle die, sheer ribbon, reinkers, heat embossing, half pearls, embossing folder, foam tape
