ODBD Stamping in Time Challenge 37

   I am honored to be a guest designer for Our Daily Bread's Stamping in Time Challenge 37 (SNTODBD37).  The assignment is to use Our Daily Bread Design stamps.  The challenge this time is DP (designer paper) by me. 
   I made my designer paper with ODBD TIME.  I inked up part of the clock.  Then, I stamped "Pray" from the sentiment "Take Time to Pray" and "Time" from "Time to Celebrate".  I repeated those words three times the ticking of a clock....time, time, time....pray, pray, pray.  Then I used a marker to only color the hands of the clock.

This card has a removable paperweight!  I wanted the recipient to have something to tear off and I was thrilled to find these large flat marbles at the back of my craftstore (near the woodworks).  It was the perfect size to highlight the sentiment which I had stamped on a round chipboard piece. 

Here is a closeup:

   You can imagine how heavy the paperweight must be. The card has chipboard scored in half for the base, and a recycled, thin, white cardboard for the inside.  It holds up well.  Scor-tape was used to attach the finished marble to the card.

   I also used copper wire strung through a beautiful button and accented with brown beads.

    You are probably wondering why I inked partial images for my paper.  I tried using the whole image at first.  However, the clock is sooo stunning on its own...that I didn't want to cover it up!  I opted for this look instead. ;)
Now it's your turn! ;)

Use ODBD images to create your own background papers.  ODBD background stamps are okay!  Just make sure you have at least one panel that was totally stamped with ODBD images to create the paper.  Remember, the more you play the more you increase your chance to win!
We look forward to seeing what you create using ODBD stamps!
