ODBD November New Release Reminder

Good morning!

Today we are taking a look back at Our Daily Bread Designs November Release, here is the card I created featuring Snowlake Sky, Snow Crystals and also the Peace Border from the October release. For more inspiration using the November Release be sure to visit the ODBD Blog.

This is my clean and simple (CAS) snowflake design.
My blue/purple background was made using water color paper, spray with water, add Color Burst or any intense color (that mixes with water) then sprinkled with Kosher (coarse ground salt) and set it aside to dry.  It makes wonderful designs as it dries.
I wanted just a strip of the Snowflake Sky so I made a frame with the Pierce Rectangles (narrowing the rectangle by re-cutting one long side side. Make sure piercings are lined up or you get double piercing on part of it).
I cut the Peace Border from scrap background paper (the blue/purple) and cutting it again in white, glued them together and glued under my snowflake Sky panel then added two tone purple ribbon over the edge then glued it to the card base.
Next I cut out my Snow Crystals with more leftover background and glued them to the top portion and added rhinestones.

My second card features the Snowflake Sky and Snow Crystals as well.

I also used the Pierced Circles and Pierced Ovals.
This was a sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers that I thought would go well with these dies.
My backgrounds were already made and in my stash...I love having a stash!
The pink background is done with Radiant Pearls (gold and pinks) and the turquoise snowflakes were cut out of a water color salted background.

Robin, both cards are GORGEOUS! I love the CAS style on the first one, the die cut Peace is perfect sentiment for it. And the second one is fun and colorful card. Love them both :) Thanks for the inspirations, my friend. Blessings!

Mate I love both of these cards and I am in awe that you created a CAS card - is that not the most difficult technique ever invented !!! Everything you create makes my heart smile. OK now I have to prove I am not a robot in order to leave this comment. I failed on my last attempt LOL .
