Good morning and welcome to another ODBD challenge!!
The challenge this month is to make a card using the letters O, D, B, D
 My card for this challenge uses:
O=Our Daily Bread Designs Paper
D=Dresden Quilt Die, Doily
B=Button, Border cut
D=Die cuts, Double ribbon
ODBD stamps used: Grace's Strength
ODBD paper used: Cozy Quilt Collection

For this card I started with a light sagey green base and then built up adding the peachie layer and white border cut with the Leafy Edged Border.  I then cut a white doily, cut two remaining scallops from the border into corners, cut my quilt from two decorative ODBD papers out of the Cozy Quilt Collection and a dark green quilt (for the outline), (I cut away the frame part of the quilt). I also cut two Filigree Frames, one white and one dark green.  I put my quilt outline down on a piece of scrap so that I had a base to glue my pieces onto. When I was finished piecing my quilt I glued the doily to the bottom to show just a bit and sandwiched my Filigree Frames between quilt and doily.
I love the new sentiments and verses from ODBD Anniversary collections honoring Grace and her fight against cancer so I used one from Grace's Strength on my card today!  I finished by adhering my green base to a white folded card and then making my double ribbon bow topped with a button tied with floss.

This challenge is a recipe challenge.   The recipe is to use 4 items, materials or techniques beginning with each letter in ODBD.  
For example:
 O-Our Daily Bread Designs stamps
 D-daisies, dots
 B-bling, buttons, and bow
 D-diamonds, dog, double stitched

Please visit my design team sisters for more inspiration.

 Participants have until May 1 to link their creations, HERE.  There will  be a $15 gift certificate  toward stamps for one random winner.

Who have we to trust in but our God?  There is no one else who could speak the universe into existence.  Who but our Lord raised the dead, spoke healing, touched eyes that had never seen, ears that had never heard and made them new again.  Doctors try to help us but they can only do so much.  Only One formed us in our mothers womb, One knows the number of hair we have, One has given us our days before any of them had yet come. ( Psalm 139:13-16)
"For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them".
I'm with Job when he said (Job 13:15)
"Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him"
 I trust the God who so LOVES me that He sent His only Son to die in my place.  

(John 3:16)

 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life".
