Gladiolus flowers are so beautiful, and they come in a large array of colors. The Gladiolus flower was my Mom’s favorite flower. When I saw the Gladiolus stamp from the ODBD Gladiolous – You Bless Me stamp set, I immediately thought of her. So this card is in memory of her.
This card will be submitted to Our Daily Bread Designs for it’s July challenge, ODBDSLC276, Anything that Grows with ODBD. The challenge requires the use of at least one stamp from either ODBD, North Coast Creations, or Artistic Outpost. This card is created with two ODBD products; the frame die cut and the red Gladiolus stamp.
I submitted this card to the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge. The challenge was to create a card and “decorate all the way to the border. Add lace to the edge, color to the edge, stamp off the edge, die cut your card with a fancy die cut whatever you do go all the way to the border.” Therefore, I used the largest die from the ODBD Vintage Border Dies to create my card in the form of the die.
I also submitted the card for two other Splitcoaststampers Challenges: 1) F4A334, “add some sort of frame (it can be diecut, punched, stamped, embossed, etc.) to your lovely creation” . Because my card is made in the form a frame die, I decided to submit the same card for this challenge. 2) IC554, Petals, which was to draw inspiration from a website full of gorgeous floral arrangements.
If interested, you may read all the wonderful Splitcoaststampers comments on this card HERE. You will note that the card was selected as a Favorite For The Week Ending 7/17/16, as well as a CAS (Clean and Simple) favorite.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed day!

[Jesus said,] “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.” Luke 6:27 – 29 (NIV)
