ODBDSLC213 - Stitches

The Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs this week is to create a card with stitching, real or faux .  Join us here for all of the details.

For our stitches challenge this week I chose my favorite bird from Our Daily Bread Designs and heat embossed and colored it up with Stampin Up Markers.  I combined a lace border from the Beautiful Borders set with a flourish and the new ODBD Doily die and topped it off with a seam binding bow.

ODBD Stamps Used: Bird
ODBD Paper Used: Blushing Rose Collection

Other Supplies: Spellbinder dies, foam tape, embossing folders, seam binding ribbon, Stampin Up Markers, heat embossing, water pen.

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