v Return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment, telling us you have completed the hop and informing us of any blogs you were unable to comment on.
v Answer the question on the ODBD blog in your comments.

-----------------------------------------


For my project I used a variety of the new sets.  I started with the beautiful quilt image from the Sew Special set.  After coloring it with markers, I framed it using the Flower Border.  This was also colored with markers and cut out using Spellbinders’ Label 18.  It is made to work perfectly with this die.  Then I used Spellbinders’ Label 13 to cut out the window and sponged ink around all edges.

The sentiment is from the Spool Tag Set.  I cut it out using one of the dies from Spellbinders’ Ribbon Tags Trio Three, then trimmed it down and layered it on the same die, cut from green cardstock.  I used seam binding for the ribbon and bow.


I wanted the background to look like a quilt so I used Lattice 1 Window Frame Die from Cheery Lynn Designs to create a frame around different squares of decorative cardstock from K & Co.  The layer under this was punched around the edges using a Martha Stewart Corner/Border punch.  I added pink and green mini pearls and a pearl pin for embellishment.

Your next stop is Lisa’s blog.  Make sure you leave some love before moving on and after finishing the hop, don’t forget to return to the ODBD Blog to comment and answer the question.
