For my backgrounds, I chose to use both the ODBD Stitch Background and the ODBD Grunge Cross Background. I love how the Stitch Background can be used even on tiny spaces and still look effective. Can you see the stitches even behind the quote from the ODBD Never Give Up set?

Oh man, Becky. I have had several people check, and they can see my photos. Not sure what happened when you hopped by. So sorry.

Hi--the first square has a black
background and a white triangle with an exclamation point inside it, also white. I clicked on that, and it showed the black "slide" as one of three...hmmm!

Lower on your page I could see your pretty green background and the flowers, with the Oswald Chambers quote definitely worth quoting!
Thanks, Patter---Jennifer in Ohio

Hi Patter~

What a great card. I love the colors you chose. (And the backgrounds!) That sewing bg looks great with the green loops behind it...it all looks sewn. The flowers are gorgeous! How would you mail this card, or wouldn't you? I love the different colors on the leaves! And, that quote is wonderful!
