ODBDSLC122 Sparrow at Sunset
I made this card for my second week as guest designer on the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge team.

For my card, I used ODBD's He Watches Me for the sparrow and thistle. These were cut with ODBD's custom Sparrow Die, which made it so easy to layer the stamped image onto my sunset background. The sparrow was colored with Copics.
Inside the z-fold card, I used ODBD's Bird & Butterfly Labels, and a saying from ODBD's Faith Set. Both were stamped directly onto another sunset, and cut out with the matching Spellbinders Labels Eighteen. I colored the butterflies and bird in the label with a copper colored Jelly Roll pen to match the copper metallic paper I used to mat everything.
The patterned background paper is from the Mariposa stack, and the sunsets were my photographs, which I printed out to stamp on. I thought the beautiful sunsets were perfect for the saying "He makes everything beautiful in His time".
The top photo is the card closed, the middle one is how it looks while standing up, and the bottom one is the card fully open.
