ODBD April Release Blog Hop!

 Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs April Release Blog Hop!
We on the DT have been having a great time playing with our fabulous new images and dies and I have a feeling you’re going to want to play too!  You might want to pop on over to the ODBD Blog and start from there.

For my card, I’m using the fabulous Hyacinth set and Quatrefoil Background die.
Julie Warner -https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com

I also used the Spellbinders coordinating Labels 26 to die cut the Hyacinth image. After stamping the hyacinth twice, I colored one entire image and just the hyacinth on the other using Copic markers. I fussy cut the single hyacinth and popped it up on top of the base image. The sentiment was stamped inside the banner area of the image after it was colored. Some highlights were added using a white gel pen.  The Quatrefoil pattern was die cut out of grass green card stock and attached to a cobalt blue panel. I stamped, colored and cut out a couple of butterflies from the ODBD Faith set and attached them on either side. A few tiny pink and fuchsia gems were added to the hyacinth. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
