Isn’t this Kites Reverse die wonderful? I love that it’s all one piece & does the partial swirls as well. I die cut it into the Recollections heavy wt c/s…although it says it’s 110# it’s way heavier than the other 110# c/s. I wanted to be able to pull up the swirls slightly w/o worrying about it bending or tearing. I had a watercolor bg I made ages ago w/ blues & greens & a little iridescent medium (very sparkly IRL) & I loved the colors but wasn’t crazy about the overall look of it. So just using bits & pieces behind the kites was the perfect solution. I backed it w/ a very fine, smooth glitter c/s & let it show thru around the edges & under the kite tails. All that was left was to stamp the greeting & add a few sequins. 

Here’s a look at the inside using a few leftover glitter kite parts. 

Next stop is Vickie‘s Blog!  Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!

Julie Warner -

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs 5th Anniversary Release Hop!  Each year, Kelley allows each of her design team members to submit a Scripture Verse, a sentiment or a quote, and those submissions are made into the Anniversary sets.  Today’s hop will show most of those submissions, and we truly hope you love them as much as we do!

Since it mentions Rainbows, I used 4 colors of ink to stamp my sentiment and also the Elegant Oval image. I used a piece of designer paper and cut around the clouds at the top and bottom. The diagonal check patter on these corners is the reverse side of the paper I cut off. I liked it, so I turned it to this side and put it back. A few punched clouds and a rainbow of gems in graduated sizes were added after I attached everything to a coral layer. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

This is also for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast today (IC380) and I chose this Flying Kites fabric.
