Our Daily Bread- ODBDSLC275 Pop It Up or Add Dimension!

Hi Blog Friends!
 I don't know about you, but I have been having a hard time sitting down here at the computer with all the warm weather & sunshine,
just enjoying the great outdoors here.... ;)
I wasn't late for Father's Day in making my card, just late in posting it for all of you.
And not late in posting it to the
Blog for their
Pop It Up or Add Dimension Challenge.
Found Here:
So, I hope you enjoy this post  as there are some things you can use on your cards if you are inclined! ;) Or jump in on the challenge over at ODB.
You have until July 3rd, at 8 p.m.

Here's what I did:
I made a Center Step Card! 
Using ODB's- Living Water & Keep Climbing Stamps Sets.

I always enjoy doing a different fold..... 
Directions are found at SCS here:
I just did a few adjustments to make the side panels a bit wider.

Here is a close-up of the center panel that I also popped up on Scotch Perm. Mounting Tape,
 the Living Water Stamp image.
I love this old looking grist mill. 
If you'll notice, I extended the image toward the bottom of the image & even widened it,
 using my Pitt Artist Pen.
 I also added mountains to the background by hand, drawing them in from the side panels.

 This is the left side of the stamp Keep Climbing.
You can see how I extended the image to the center panel here, along with the water that is extended from the Living Water Set.

This is the right side of the Keep Climbing Stamp Set. 
Again, you can see the extension of the image onto the center panel
 & the extension of the Living Water Set onto the right panel.

This is the inside of the card, using again the Living Water Image 
& the inside sentiment is from 
ODB's Father's Day Set.

Using my Misti, the sentiment on the front is from ODB's Father's Day Set.
HOPE YOU LIKE & that ALL of the fathers out there had a SUPER DAY provided by your loved ones! 
My hubby had a SUPER DAY!

He enjoyed this cake:
We all got a giggle out of this cake when we saw it! ;)
