And now onto my project! So what do you think? I totally love this set! It is called The Lord Has Risen. Aren't the violets beautiful? I have a soft spot in my heart for violets. Growing up my Grandmother, and then my Mother and Uncle grew the most amazing ones. I apparently have a black thumb and regularly kill house plants with a bit of help from my cats but I remember as a child digging up tiny ones out of the yard and planting them next to the house and being thrilled every year as they returned.
For my card I stamped my flowers on white card stock, colored the images with Copic markers, cut them out and then sprayed them with a lot of Glimmer Mist. After they dried I layer them together. I like cutting them out before I spray them because it makes the edges curl a bit, which I think adds dimension. My verse is stamped on vanilla card stock then embossed. I added a fun flower border with a Martha Stewart punch and a bit of purple polka dotted ribbon.
A couple of things before you go. I want to tell you about some really exciting stuff that we have planned for this month! March 17th is Our Daily Bread Designs 2nd anniversary and we are celebrating! Be sure you visit the ODBD Blog on Sunday, March 7th!

Then beginning on Saturday, March 13th, a different challenge will be announced everyday and best of all there will be prizes every single day! Then on March 17th we will have another Blog Hop! to reveal the Special Edition Anniversary Release! Make sure you are there!
