ODBD Guest Designer Week 3

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I have been watching off and on today the television coverage of the bombing attack in Boston.
This still makes no sense that someone could build a bomb to kill innocent people. How someone could justify an action like this is incomprehensible to me.

The stories of heroes are starting to come out as well. People acted quickly to help those in need. I read about the former NFL player who was watching the race and rushed to help victims.

I heard one TV commentator say today that we need to respect our God-given abilities, do good with them and help others in need. All I can say to that is AMEN!!

Onto my card for today. This is my 3rd weeks as a guest designer for Our Daily Bread Designs. I am still so thrilled that I was asked to be a guest designer.

This card was made using the set "birds and butterfly labels". It coordinates with the Spellbinders labels 18 dies. The sentiment is from the "Mother's Day" set.

I paired it up with Stampin-Up designer paper from the Sycamore Street collection. My layout is the April Week 3 Verve sketch.

I completed this card with some Stampin-Up pool party seam binding bow with a button center.

Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time........God bless.
