Last of Dina's Birthday Challenges

Note - this is the second of 2 posts on my blog today!! Make sure that you scroll down to see the other entry. Well, this is my entry for Dina's last birthday challenges and I did them all!! Yeah!! They were so much fun!! This time, Dina asked us to case a Design Team member from Our Daily Bread designs. Are you kidding me??!! Have you seen the talent in that team???? It was nearly impossible to ever make a final pick!! And while I saw lots of great cards I finally settled on this beauty by Becca Freeken. While my final card doesn't even measure up, it was a great card to draw some creativity from!! This focal image is actualy made from 2 stamp sets from smARTworks (sadly, I don't actually have any ODBD stamps yet). The cat and butterfly are individual stamps and the grass comes from a different set. I did a lot of masking to create the final image. The sentiment is stamped onto some awesome Memory Box paper!! I love it so much that while I've had the paper since August, I have only made 1 card with it!! I'm such a hoarder!!! But yeah, I actually used it!! And that sentiment, it comes from the smARTworks set called Looking Collage, and it another stamp set designed by Dina herself!! Everyone who sees a card that sentiment LOVES it!! Well, I've probably shared more than you care to read about!! Here is the supply list: Stamps: Do You See What I See, Hoppers, Looking Collage (all smARTworks), Borders & Corners {square} (Papertrey Ink); Paper - Aerial (Memory Box), watercolor paper, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!); Ink-Soft Sky, Buckaroo Blue, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun, Ruby Red, Garden Green, Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black (Stampin' Up!); Other-embossing powder, sponge, watercolor brush.

Wow! That is a great job masking, Donelda, and it's a wonderful card design. I love that sentiment... ties in nicely with my upcoming blog post, LOL! Mind if I borrow it for my sidebar?
