Happy New Year! Welcome to the January Our Daily Bread designs Release “Taking a Leap of Faith” Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from the ODBD Blog then you are in the right place! If not you should go to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog to start from the beginning so you don’t miss anything! The Hop will run from 8am Eastern Jan. 1 to 8pm Jan 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Jan. 3. There will be 5 prizes. Kelley has very generously offered to give five prizes of YOUR CHOICE of one set!!! The prizes are hidden on various blogs along the hop, so it is important that you visit and comment on each one!

The hardest part of my card was taking a picture of it, lol. With all the metallic/mirror finish card stock and glittery bling, my camera really wigged out on most of the pics.  I don’t usually do a lot of glittery metallics, but New Year’s is a perfect time to bring on the bling! And it was a lot fun, as well. All of the glittery fronds, the ribbon and even the houndstooth mirror card stock came from the Christmas clearance isles at Michael’s. The silver card stock for the butterfly and sentiment is a recycled/repurposed foil lid from a container. I stamped them with Stazon and on the butterfly, added a touch of color with some Sharpies. It was cut with the matching butterfly die available only at ODBD.

On the sentiment, I used a Spellbinders circle die and my brand new Grand Calibur. What a wonderful machine! I added the fronds and a bow then arranged the layers on a lavender 5.5 x 4.25 card.
