ODBD stamps used: Hummingbird, Glory (sneak peak), Ornate Frame Sentiments
ODBD dies used: Hummingbird, Quatrefoil Pattern, Antique Labels and Borders, Beautiful Borders, Ornamental Crosses (the top corner pieces are from the lattice cross).
 This week for Shining the Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD), we are doing Spring Colors.  To see all the creations in one place or join the challenge, click HERE.  You have until May 4th to join us.  For this challenge you may use any stamps but if you have any 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 (The Shining the Light Award is only for those who use ODBD stamps).  We would love to see your creations for this our 200th challenge!
     My card today was made up from using the new release (May) Morning Glories twice (it is a corner stamp) to make a frame.  I cut out the center and used the Quatrefoil Pattern die cut behind the frame, then I mounted them onto a piece of coordinating paper from the Christian Faith collection of ODBD. I die cut the lattice cross and used the two ends to form my corners at the top.  I stamped and die cut my hummer and colored then used Stickles (glitter glue). The words are from Ornate Frame Sentiments and cut out using the Antique Labels and Borders die.  For the bottom I used one of the Beautiful Borders (sort of representing the tops of a fence) and threaded it at the bottom with blue floss then added pearls.  The ribbon runs between the morning glory frame and the Quatrefoil then around the decorative paper. Hummer and sentiment are popped up.  I also used some Liquid Pearls, in various colors, around the frame.

"Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.  'The Lord is my portion,' says my soul. 'Therefore I hope in Him!'  The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him."  Lam. 3:22-25

What a stunning card Robin!! I just love the lavender and blue combo, your use of dies and your framing with the morning glories!! The hummingbird reminds me of the birds we currently see in our fuscias. Gorgeous my friend.
