ODBDSLC193 Metal or sweets- Anniversary challenge 1

Since this month is Our Daily Bread Designs 6th Anniversary, the team will celebrating this Anniversary with a sequence of challenges related to the 6th Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs.

The traditional 6th anniversary gift is iron or sweets so let us see something with metal or something sweet on it.

I originally thought I was just using metal, but after filling my hummingbird feeder many times with sugar water, I realized that my card contains the sweet nectar that hummingbirds love, there's no greater sweet-tooth on earth than a hummingbird (I'm a close second)!

I heat embossed and water-colored my sweet ODBD flower and bird with re-inkers.  The metal pieces are a retired SU hardware piece and some metal brad stickers.  The designer paper is a new release from the ODBD called Blooming Garden Collection.

ODBD Stamps Used: Bee Balm FlowerHummingbird
ODBD Dies Used: Hummingbird
ODBD Paper Used:  Blooming Garden Collection

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, retired SU hardware, metal stickers, seam binding ribbon, heat embossing, re-inkers, water pen.

Check out the blogs of my talented friends for more inspiration.
