ODBDSLC113... Use 3, Please...

Hello, friends!!  Its Saturday and time for another ODBD Shining the Light challenge (ODBDSLC113)!  This week we have a challenge for you... use at least 3 different stamps on your project!  That can include background stamps, images and sentiments.

For my card I used the ODBD Brocade Background, as well as multiple stamps from the Simple Things set. The patterned paper I used for the card is from Stampin Up!  I stamped the Brocade Background using SU!'s Calipso Coral ink, cut it to fit the card base and then inked the edges with Rangers Old Paper Distress ink.  The patterned paper pieces that I used were also distressed with Old Paper ink.  The clover image from the Simple Things set was stamped using Pear Pizzazz ink and then die cut using the matching Clover die.  Once die cut I also inked the image with Old Paper ink and adhered it to the cream cardstock piece.  The bees from Simple Things were stamped on cardstock using Marina Mist ink, trimmed out, inked with Old Paper and then adhered as you see.   The patterned paper pieces were adhered to the brocade image and then the lace trim was adhered at the bottom.  I inked the edges of the card base as well.  The card was finished off with some light blue baker's twine and the sentiment.

As with all ODBD challenges we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, June 29th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced  next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries that are made without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on nor will they qualify for prizes. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, June 29th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC112. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Hello Rosie
Oh.. I do love the shabbiness of this creation, you have kept it to a minimum, as is your want, but it still shows through, a few pearls and it would be a true Shabby-chic for me.
Your luscious Pink Bg PP is just that, your lace is tactile, and your die-cut clovers adds the dimension.
A gorgeous card Rosie.

Your card is beautiful Rosemary. The brocade background is so pretty with all of your other elements. I love the colors and all the dimension. I just received the simple things die and stamp set and can't wait to use them, so it is fun to see how many layers you made from that one stamp. It looks so dimensional the way you used it!
