ODBDSLC188 - Pink, Red and White

The challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs is a pink, red and white colour challenge. I created a birthday card using the Canning Jars, Canning Jar Fillers, Bookmarks-Scripture and All Occasion Sentiments stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs. I cut out two of the canning jars using one of the ODBD custom canning jar dies.

For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have any Our Daily Bread Designs stamps we would love to see you use them!

We would love to see your creations!!

Some more photos of my card:
I masked and stamped the canning jars and added in the fillers. Then drew in my "shelf" with a black Copic multiliner. I love the canning jars they are so versatile and can be used for so many different designs and projects!
This canning jar has part of one of the stamps from the Our Daily Bread Designs Bookmarks-Scripture inside. I just stamped the first part of the verse and then added the scripture reference at the bottom.
The flowers were made using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms, sponged with DI Spun Sugar. I then misted them with water and used a stylus and a foam pad to "crease" the petals a little. Rolled up the flowers and once they were glued and dried I added my homemade glimmer mist, some glossy accents and Stickles to the petals.
(For my glimmer mist I used a combination of Perfect Peals "Perfect Pearl", Distress Ink Spun Sugar (the rei-inker) and water. I found this site which tells you how to make it.)
