ODBDSLC243: Inspiration Challenge

Have you seen the all the cards made by the ODBD breadsticks for this month's release?  WOW!  These new sets are way more versatile than I initially pictured.   I thought the sunshine theme would be very cute but it even works for a masculine card! For this week's Inspiration challenge, I used the new Sunburst Background Die as a stencil.  I first sponged yellow on my card base that I had cut with the pierced rectangle die from the ODBD Splendorous Stars die set.  I then placed that inside the Sunburst Background Die and sponged orange along the edges and between the rays - more heavily on the edges.  I didn't want to emboss with this die because I wanted to stamp my mountain range from the Keep Climbing set at the bottom.  I then added a fishtail banner with a verse from the Good Man stamp set.  

And please check out my other CT sisters for more wonderful inspiration:

Challenges I am playing in:


  1. Wonderful card Diana! Love how you used the die as a stencil and love that image with it. Awesome verse to use too!

  2. Diana, You are absolutely right about using the die as a .stencil for a man's card. It's something that I struggle with quite often (a man's card) but you have pulled it off beautifully on your card. It's gorgeous!

  3. You are so funny my dear friend!
    This is beautiful!! I love your version and really, looking at the inspiration, I'm surprised we didn't ALL have a version, heehee!! Love your idea with the Splendorous Stars die! Genius! I love that die for the outer edge don't you? I love the piercing!
    Your card is fantastic!

  4. Love this! Great take on the sketch. It is so creative the way you used the background die to create a scene together with the stamp. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me dear friend. Hugs.

  5. What a stunning scene, Diana!! I love the background you created with the sponged sunburst and the mountains. Stunning take on the inspiration my friend!

  6. This is gorgeous, Diana. Great use of the die as a stencil - SO pretty. Thanks for sharing your talents with us, and have a blessed week!
