Our Daily Bread Designs {Challenge 8}

**First, Mom, please close this post. You are not allowed to read today. Sorry. :) I love you!**

Okay, now that Mom has gone, I can share our challenge and my creation with you! :) This week we turned our calendars to the month of April, and April 1st always brings "April Fools.” So for our challenge this week, we want to see a creation with either stitching or faux stitching. How fun is that?

For my stitched card, I decided to use the new set from Our Daily Bread Designs called "Happy Mother's Day." Now you can see why I didn't want Mom to see her card. :) For her card, I stamped both the floral border and verse in VersaMark ink. I embossed the border with white embossing powder and the verse in clear embossing powder. Then I added pearls and jewels to the image. The three green jewels represent Mom's three children, and the eight pearls represent her eight grandchildren. Do you think she will like it? I also stitched leaves around the floral paper and a straight stitch around the green cardstock. I also used the new Basic Grey Kioshi papers that are available here in the ODBD store. :) Papers: Paper Trey Ink cs, Basic Grey Kioshi
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Happy Mother's Day
Stamp Ink: VersaMark, Ranger clear ep, Ranger seafoam white ep
Embellishments: Ribbon Retreat satin ribbon, sewing machine, My Mind's Eye Backyard green gems, KaiserCraft pearls

Now be sure to see what other "stitching" creations the Challenge Team has made.
