Good morning sweet friends. As I mentioned yesterday, today is the Our Daily Bread Designs 4th Anniversary Special Design Team Edition Release Blog Hop – welcome! If you got here from Jan Marie Ennenga’s Blog, you are in the right place! Should you get off track, a list of all the ladies participating in the hop is posted on the ODBD Blog to guide you along the way. If you’ve stopped by on this anniversary day in previous years you know this is an event I get super excited about. For the sets being released today the Design Team submits a quote or Scripture for inclusion in the Anniversary Sets. The sets this year are exquisite, here’s the quote I picked and you can see all the sets HERE.
Stay tuned for the blog hop details below in the meantime here’s how I put my card together today…I cut my cardstock to 4″ x 6.5″ and went around the outside with a Martha Stewart border punch leaving a tall rectangle on the interior of the punching. I popped this layer up from the 5″ x 7″ base. I then matted my sentiment with a piece of cardstock and popped this layer up. of cardstock before I added my sentiment. I finished by tying a bow and adding paper roses and pearls as embellishment. That’s it – soooo easy!!

Morning! This is one of my all time favorites of your cards. Love the colors and the bow. The stamp/saying is beautiful! Great card!
This is stunning Becca, love the design and love the dp. I also just love this sentiment by Luther.
That is sooo pretty Becca.
Elegant! Love the beautiful pink and pearls! The sentiment is beautiful!
Wow! I’m a new follower Becca and will enjoy this site so much! I fear being a SU demo sometimes leaves me behind in all that’s out there for products! These stamps & die cuts are precious! You put together such beautiful pieces of art! Blessings to you Becca!
That die cut is fantastic. I love what you did with the pearls. Now I need to get it!
Gorgeous Becca. I love that paper behind the rest. Such tiny flowers. TFS
Love it!!! Can you tell us which MS border punch?
You always amaze me,
Love your card as usual–very pretty. Your work is always over the top–amazing.
This is a stunning card! I especially love the die cut scroll work! TFS!
At first glance I, like others, thought to myself, “How did she make that die?”
All these little tricks of the trade we are learning will add to our repertoire thanks to you. I love all the detail cards that take a lot of time…they are really beautiful. But, the cards that work our like this one with quite a bit less effort are truly needed in our arsenal. Very lovely.
Oh how I love God’s creation, and this quote is perfect! Love your card, Becca! Just beautiful! Blessings,
Love the card but the saying and the paper it is so beautiful. God does make so many beautiful things around us. Thanks for sharing.
Beautiful, Becca! Your creations always inspire me…this verse is very true…God’s beauty is all around us!
One of my favorite quotes…I’m so glad you chose it and now I need to go shopping!!! LOL
Beautiful, Becca…thank you
Beautifully executed! (I get so tired of saying the same ole’ thing every time I come here, so I thought I’d try something different.) I do so look forward to your posts and your creations.
A beauitful sentiment and card Becca. I wish people would open their eyes and take a good look at the beauty of His love and grace.
Beautiful, Becca! …as usual!!! And I love how you used the MS punch. At first, I thought it was a die cut. I wouldn’t have thought to use a punch like that, and now I have a whole different approach to using the tools I already have! Like a couple of the other ladies, I’d be interested to know which MS punch you used for this superbly designed card. THANKS!
Simply stunning Becca, as always!!! Love the punched matting! Wow!!! Love your quote!!!
What a great card. I love the quote from Martin Luther.
Oh my goodness! Just look at that wonderful use of DP and the lattice die cut! Sensational!
Becca…your card is gorgeous! Love all the details and the wonderful sentiment from Martin Luther :) !!! Hugs ~S~
Oh Becca another beautiful job well done. Love the paper, saying and all the other stuff. It is so elegant.
How stunning Becca!! Love all the pink, your punch detail, the added flowers and bow, pearls, and your stamping on the dp!! Gorgeous quote!!
so inspirational as always
beautiful card Becca
That is a beautiful card and the sentiment is so true.The color are lovely.
Oh, Becca, I always love your cards, but this time you’ve outdone yourself. The trellis effect from the Martha Stewart punch is gorgeous, and you’ve chosen one of my favorite quotes. It seems especially true now as spring is bursting out all over.
I am super excited for this hop! Congrats to your 4 years!!! And what a beautiful card today Becca!
Well Becca, it might be an easy card to do but it is still stunning and I love those words too. A Masterpiece again!
ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!! This looks like a CAS for you Becca! JUST GORGEOUS!!!!!!!! :)
The simplicity of this is so beautiful! Love that DP!!! And the panel made with the border punch is really pretty, too! Just like everything you create, Becca!!!
A fabulous card and awesome sentiment – pretty sure this one will have to be added to my collection. Love your layout and how you placed the sentiment on patterned paper…of course I love those colors as well.
Beautiful card, Becca. You may call this simple, but I call it amazing!
Beautiful card and a great choice of saying! Love your layers and the finishing touches of flowers and pin!
This is a very pretty card. I love the bow– the verse is perfect for so many things. Love it!

Beautiful.. Love this sentiment. Love the die with the pearls and the beautiful bow.

hugs and kisses from germany,
Love your card, the verse is beautiful. Thanks again for sharing another beautiful card.
Oh, how pretty…you are sure on a card roll. The last cards have been so beautiful. You have such a wonderful talent. Thanks for sharing. Maybe your son should come to visit way more often LOLOL.
Gorgeous stamp and gorgeous card! I’m so thrilled that you chose this quote….one of my faves, plus I love the image included as well!!! You have used some of my fave papers (which I cannot bear to cut!), and of course your details are always yummy! Thanks for the constant inspiration!! Hugs! Angie
Stunning card, oh WOW I could just stare at this card all day, it is such a beautiful card. I love your usage of the punch and how you embellished it with the pearls. And then there’s your bow, love your bows!!! To top it off what a great sentiment and love the font it’s written in. Just perfect!
Gorgeous! Until you mentioned that you used a punch, I was sure that it was a die-cut background!
If you get a chance, I’m sure many of us would love to know the name of the punch, but also how you calculate the area to punch (in other words, another amazing tidbit on “How Becca works with punches”).
Thanks for showing this lovely design today!
Beautiful card – as always. Great quote.
Love this, Becca. What a beautiful lace panel you’ve made to highlight the sentiment.
Becca, I was captivated the moment I first saw a card made by you. I’ve been a steadfast fan ever since. You have the most consistently elegant and breathtaking cards I’ve ever seen. You are truly heaven sent. This is another card that is well balanced in design, color, layout and execution. Beautiful!
What a great card and quote! As always you are the best!
I looked through all of them and no one does it better than you. You remain my best inspiration for my cards.
Going to try this one looks smashing. Could make it look masculine too by choosing dark colours and look like wrought iron.
Very fun idea . Thanks for making me buzz
This is gorgeous. I love how the frame seems to float.
I love your cards Becca, but i must say, you use so many pearls it must be a $20 card.
This is an elegant, beautiful card! I love the pretty floral background and the pretty embellishments!!

This card is one of my all time favourites. There is so much to love about it. Every element makes me “oooh and aw!” Like so many of the previous commenters, I too would like to know what M.S. punch you used and how you used it. As a dull normal, I can’t figure it out myself. Thanks for sharing this beauty with us.
I am finding your blog very recently…and I have to say your cards are beyond beautiful! Your soooo creative and I love all of your cards! I love the little details that you place on each card and many of the stamps are so very warm and comforting. Your color palettes are amazing too! You are very inspiring and I hope to make beautiful cards like you do someday too!
Thanks for a chance to win some “Spiritual Stamps” we all need those words in your life! Hugs Lisa

Your card is simply elegant Becca!!! And of course the stamped images from ODBD are always the BEST!!! Their verses continue to amaze me as they all seem to strike a cord with me. Thank you for always inspiring me to try my best on my next card. ekciampo

Love the delicate look of your card with the punched framing and lovely bow. Perfect to show off this great quote that you chose. Really like how it looks stamped on the decorative paper.
Hi Becca! I learned of the hop when I checked your blog this morning, but decided to start at the top. It’s like coming home to arrive at your blog again. I love (and know you do, too) pinks, florals, and all things lacy and girly. This is a wonderful card, and I love the quote. We take every opportunity to remind our son of the truth of God’s love and power as seen in His creation. Thanks so much for sharing.
Your cards are always so pretty and inspiring.
Love your beautiful card. Okay, now how did you do that scroll work and what Martha Stewart punch did you use?
Love the Scripture on patterned paper. Love the background paper too.
I absolutely love your creativity, Becca!! The die cut frame using punches is an inspiration. Your card is gorgeous and love pearls and softness that enhances that beautiful Scripture!
What a pretty card…I love the different textures!
Your creation is beautiful. I have tried to figure out which MS punch it is. Could you let us know? I can’t figure out if it is a scroll, vine etc. I must have it along with the inspiration from Martin Luther.
blessings to you today!
Being Lutheran, I like Martin Luther’s quote on how God is all around us in everything. We truly are not alone! Great card!!!
Beautiful card and I love that saying!!
Love this quote. So often we forget that God is in everything. Your attention to detail is amazing.
what a cute card. the layer that is between the sentiment and the paper, is so cute. i love all the little flowers and your bow.
The Gospel … the good news … nature proclaims the good news. Thank you for sharing your lovely card.
How pretty with the die cut panel behind the sentiment.
Beautiful Becca – love how you framed your verse!
love all the little pearls what a great way to bling up this wonderful card .
A truly beautiful card fitting for the true sentiment
Your card is gorgeous! I love the openwork layer. And the verse is soooo true! I feel so close to God when I’m working in the yard, or walking on a trail in the woods, or just out looking up at the stars at night.

Tonight I was looking through the EK Success site and found the punch.. yeah! gotta order one of them.. thanks for sharing this beauty with us. blessings ~ Pam
Beautiful, Becca! Love the decorative background! Such a wonderful quote!
What a wonderful card you share with us today. The sentiment is wonderful and I couldn’t help but think it just might have been on your mind as you took your little drive through the Older part of town as you mentioned in your blog recently. I grew up near your area I believe and oh I do miss the azaleas and dogwoods.(reminisced a little when I read your post) However, I realized , just this morning on my way to work as the sun was coming up over the thawing frozen lakes, and shining on the white birch trees,there is beauty everywhere if you open your eyes and heart to see His wondrous work. Thanks for reminding me.
Love the layers of your card and placement of the pearls and your awesome bow. Fantastic quote as well.
Very pretty–love the big pink bow and the border die you used.
I too absolutely am in awe of your beautiful card with its lovely sentiment. So many commenters have asked which MS punch you used, but I am the lucky owner of this punch and it’s not a MS…it’s EK Success Scroll Pattern Large
I am definitely going to give this a try as it’s simply stunningly gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration, as always.
Becca, What can I say. Every card you make is just perfect. Love the colors, layout & ribbon.
Oh my, love that punched border! So creative! Hugs

Item #: 54-50052.
I hope this helps. Becca is so creative, I just hope I can duplicate her frame!
Becca this is gorgeous, I’m having a brain Duh moment, how can you get a 5×7 card to stand up, even with 12×12 paper it’s not tall enough? I’m sure there is an easy answer to this but it’s driving me crazy to figure this out? Thanks,
As usual such a lovely card. Great color
All I can say is God has blessed you with a great talent and you use it well
Beautiful card as always, Becca. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love this quote…and I can surely see God in these places. All places. I think your card is beautiful. I was wondering what the frosty paper was made of? Plastic? It is truly beautiful. I love all of the pearls, and the paper underneath is so colorful and bold. I love your placement of the quote and the large bow with the mini flowers. It’s a Becca card for sure!
He IS Able!
I went to every card designer on the blog hop and left a message for each one.

I’m speechless with this one beautiful card.
What a beautiful card. Your blog is always gorgeous and peaceful. Is it possible for the Holy Spirit to inhabit a website? Yeah, I know, probably not. But there is something about your blog. I am blessed when I come here to “visit”. Your cards are beautiful. You inspire me to buy more Spellbinders. (I’ll have to add to my meager 3 set collection.)
God bless dear Sister,
