Hello lovely Crafters! We have a Mid-Month Blog-Hop happening at Our Daily Bread Designs showcasing September's Mid-Month NEW Releases at Our Daily Bread Designs. You'll be blown away with THESE!!  But don't take my word, go take a look at  at how fabulous they are and be sure to participate in this HOP to win a Gift Certificate to shop at ODBD . Take a look at my samples below then follow along on the HOP....
https://www.ourdailybreaddesigns.com/index.php/
My First Sample would make a great wedding card with this lovely phrase;
" Today, Tomorrow, Forever"...
My background on this card was stenciled on with ivory brilliance dye ink using the same dies and paper from which I cut out these flowers. (A double bonus with these beautiful ODBD dies). Loving these flowers and they are super easy to make. They are centered with sparkly buttons and sponged with the same ink. For the flower dimension I've pressed a pencil against each petal along the edge folding down and also pressed the centers in. The ODBD curvy edge dies are a lovely addition. I have layered some of those borders for the layered look at the top.

The colorful birthday card is so pretty. I really like the Pretty Posies die. The wedding card is stunning. The colors are soft and beautiful. The flowers look graceful and the borders from the new Leafy edged borders are wonderful. I like how you layered them at the top.
