Hello friends! Today I am excited to share my PURPLE card with you.  Amethyst is the 6th anniversary stone, so as this is the 6th anniversary for Our Daily Bread Designs, the challenge at Shining the Light is to use purple or lavender in your creation.  To see all the creations in one place or to join the challenge, click HERE.  You have until March 16th to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have ODBD stamps we would love to see you use them.  If you participate, you have a chance to win the $15 certificate toward ODBD stamps or to be spotlighted for the Shining the Light Award (Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps). We would love to see your creations.

Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) stamps and dies used: Zinnia set, Zinnia & Leaves die set, Blooming Gardens paper collection, Beautiful Borders die.  Other dies by Spellbinders. My ribbon was dyed to match my color scheme.
I made 4 layers of flower with each being popped up to add dimension.  Gold micro beads were added to the center, I then colored some of them with Copic Markers.
