Our favorite with ODBD

Today's challenge is the last one for this year's Our Daily Bread Designs Anniversary celebration! What a fun time it's been! lots of prizes been given out, lots of beautiful samples have been shared!   
Today we are showing off our favorite sets.  I love pretty much every set from ODBD but I do have one set that is close to my heart, it was my first ever stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I am using the "Mother Teresa" set.  I absolutely love the lily pads and flowers in this set, and the sentiments...LOVE them!
My first card is  a CAS type card (or clean and simple)  I find myself leaning towards this style lately.  

I embossed the flowers in clear on the green background to make my own patterned paper.  The sentiment is matted and sewn around the edge. all this beautiful green mounted on kraft....I think I LOVE that combo!

My other card I wanted to share is not new but it uses this set in a more 'fancy' way with layering and copic coloring....these flowers are fun to color!!
be sure to stop by the ODBD Blog   for more information on the challenge and to enter to win and all that good stuff!

Your CASE card is very nice, your second card is beautiful and I love all the green. I don't use it much but boy it does justice for these beautiful spring cards.
