FTTC79 & ODBDSLC24

My card today is for ODBD's Shining the Light challenge and the current Flourishes challenge.   The requirements for ODBD's challenge were to use three of something.  I ended up using three designer papers and three different stamps.  The Flourishes challenge this week is a sketch challenge which was most helpful. I must acknowledge in my post that the lovely ladies over at ODBD's Shining the Light challenge have been so very sweet to me and picked my card TWO WEEKS in a row for the Shining the Light award!   Thanks, ladies!  You don't know how much that meant to me!   

For my card I used the following stamps:  Hero Arts Hydrangea (love it!!); Flourishes Gerbera Daisies (butterfly) and ODBD's Grow in Grace (verse).  The designer papers are from the DCWV mat stack Linen Closet.   Ink is courtesy of Close to My Heart (Bamboo) and Hero Arts (Soft Pool).  I did a bit of distressing of the edges just to soften things up.   I took the picture outside since today was a nice sunny day.  I think it turned out pretty nice.... it isn't so washed out as the indoor shots.

Thanks for taking a peek... have a blessed day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; PP DCWV Linen Closet mat stack; Stamps:  Flourishes Gerbera Daisies; ODBD Grow in Grace; Hero Arts Hydrangea; Ink: CTMH Bamboo; Hero Arts Soft Pool; Rhinestones:  CTMH tiny rhinestones; Kaiser blue rhinestones; SU! Modern Label punch
