ODBDSLC #189 - L-O-V-E Recipe Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!! The Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge is a recipe challenge with the word LOVE, join us here for all of the details!

For the love challenge I chose:

L - Lace
O - Opals
V - Valentine
E - Embossing

I thought I'd take a few minutes away from celebrating the Seahawks winning the Superbowl to play with one the wonderful Our Daily Bread Designs hearts that is in the new release. I'm so delighted with these new dies from the Custom Beautiful Borders set and the Bless Your Heart dies are beyond beautful too, with piercing around the edge and intricate detail. I embossed and distressed the background pieces and added seam binding ribbon, button, and twine on a Spellbinder tag with one of the greetings from the new Bless Your Heart stamp set.

    Hubby "adopted" the Seahawks when they first showed American Football here. He stayed up to watch the victory but I didn't make it till the end!
