Hello everyone! This is sort of a rush as I want to have this entered on ODBDSLC47.  This is my 2nd entry so I hope it gets in on time.
** I'm back! Whew! I just made sure that the linky is still open before I give you more deets about this card. LOL!  I found out that there are still 25minutes left before the link closes so, yeah, I was able to make it. Yay! Happy me! :D

I used the "You Are The Potter" set for this one. Funny because, I was thinking awhile ago how many ODBD stamp sets I already own when I suddenly remembered that I already have the "You Are The Potter" set and I haven't been using it for months now! And since I was browsing on SCS (sketch challenge) SC319 this week, I decided to play along and have the card as my 2nd entry for the ODBDSLC47 Challenge Anniversary.  I chose the ODBDSLC22 Distress It challenge, hence the distressed look on my card. :)

I took photos of the card on two different angles:

I was about to adhere the pot using my glue but then decided to use pop dots instead for added dimension. This card took me less than 20mins to make as I was really, really rushing! Thanks for the sketch challenge, it made my work easier!! :) I coloured the pot using Copic markers and the SU! Bravo Burgundy marker (for the top part). I used Heidi Swapp distressing tool and Tim Holtz Antique Linen to distress the edges of my card and the sentiment panel. The paper is from K&Company Charlotte paper pad.

Thanks so much for looking and for your never-ending visits and support.

Have a blessed Friday!

ODBDSLC47 - Challenge Anniversary

Happy Thursday everyone! We're having a lovely weather here in Sydney today. A bit gloomy though but the temperature is just right. Not too hot, not too cold! :)

My card for today is my entry for ODBDSLC47 - choose your own challenge (Challenge Anniversary)
I used the ff: challenges for my card:

ODBDSLC22 - Distress It (I distressed the edges of my card with distress tool and distress ink)
ODBDSLC26 - Dies and Punches (Labels Sixteen for my main panel and MS Botanical Scallop border punch)
ODBDSLC27 - Texture It (After stamping the verse, cutting and sponging, I used Cuttlebug Stylized Flower to emboss the panel)
ODBDSLC28 - Forgotten Embellishments (In my case, I used my so-neglected dew drop for the flower center)
ODBDSLC43 - Something New, Something Old (my Nestabilities Labels Sixteen is one of my recent purchases and was used here for the first time, and my Urban Prairie dp as my something old)

And here's my card:

This bible verse from 2 Timothy is one of my "assurance/reminder verses" and I always read this to myself whenever fear visits me. I really thank God for ODBD stamps as we can share His word through stamping and cardmaking. I just pray that ODBD will come up with more scripture verses in the future. It's one way to spread the Word.  This particular stamp is from ODBD Scripture Collection 2.

Thanks for the visit. Until next post!

To God be the glory!
