    The challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs was to create a card using this photo as an inspiration.

     First you need to know that my DH and I had talked about going to a movie, but we were soooo relaxed  and enjoying the quiet time at home that we changed our minds.  With that in mind I was checking out the ODBD blog and saw this photo.......I was drawn to picture 4 BECAUSE of the caramel corn, yes, I had popcorn on the mind.  There is no way I can go to a show and not have a small bag of popcorn, since we hadn't gone to the show I was kind of missing getting my popcorn fix. As soon as I saw this picture my mind focused on the caramel corn......SO, the colors I chose were in the burgundy family and of course a lovely caramelly orange color, Mmmmmm! 
     I had a lot of fun making this card.  First I ran my DP through the Grand Calibur with an EF....then I took my Color Box gold and rubbed it all over the paper giving a nice highlight to the embossed pattern.  After stamping my sentiment (Our Daily Bread Designs) on a circle I layered this on another circle and then placed those on top of that lovely 'caramelly colored' paper cut with the Lacey Circle Die.  I punched this same paper with my Martha Stewart Hydranga punches and edged them in Red.  Before layering them together I spritzed them with some Gold Shimmer Mist and then added some Champagne colored beads to the center of each flower with a drop of Glossy Accents.  I used my Cheery Lynn die to cut some leaves from some other DP and layered everything on my card, having rounded the lower edges of the layers.  
     The colors on this card are so rich and the flowers turned out absolutely beautiful with the gold spritz.
