September ODBD/OWH Challenge

Hello everyone!

Each month Our Daily Bread Designs sponsors a challenge for card makers to create a card with a specific requirement. If 50 card makers participate then Our Daily Bread Designs will pay for the shipping on two boxes of cards to our deployed Heros (up to two boxes.)

You can find details about the challenge here:

This month's requirement is to create your own background paper with either stamps or embossing.  I decided to use Darice's Basket Weave Embossing folder on white card stock.  I created the coral red layering papers with Spectrum Noir markers (CR6, CR11, DR1) on white card stock as well, though the colors do not show up well in the photo. 

I used one of my favorite rubber stamps, Popcorn the Bear "Thanks a Bunch", and colored him and the flowers up with Spectrum Noir. The sentiment stamp is from Mama Elephant's "In My Heart" stamp set. 

The scalloped ovals were cut using Cricut's Elegant Edges cartridge and the ribbon was found in the clearance bin at Michael's. 

After cutting out my bear/flowers I popped him using some Tombow Power Tabs  to add a little dimension without getting to thick. 

Thank you for stopping by!
