ODBDSLC89 - Noel Word Play

Welcome to another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge! Do we have some fun for you!! This week is all about word play...

Use each letter of the word in NOEL to create your card.
For example...

N- Nestabilities or the word NOEL
O- Ovals, Our Daily Bread Designs, circles (the shape of an O)….
E- Embossing, envelopes or evergreens to name a few...
L- Lace or layers...

Your options are limitless!

Here's my card for the week...



And how did I incorporate the word Noel?

N - Nestabilities - Layered Poinsettia, Labels 20 & Ovals Large
O - Oval Nestabilities, Our Daily Bread Designs Stamp - Christmas Blessings
E - Embossing - Stampendous Gold Embossing Powder (sentiment), Evergreens (punched evergreens)
L - Lace (Gold) & Layers

The sentiment panel was created using Labels 20 for the outside and a SB Large Oval for the center. The oval panel has a double thickness of dimensional foam for added "lift." The panel needed something "extra" so I improvised and pulled out some gold cord which I affixed to the edges. The poinsettia was created using Spellbinders' Layered Poinsettia die. I LOVE this die. And on this card I pulled green and yellow Flower Soft fibers from my Autumn and Sweet Mixes to create the centers. I added a few paper punched evergreen sprigs and two gold jingle bells. The sentiment I selected for today's card is in Our Daily Bread Designs' Christmas Blessings set.

So here's the skinny on how to play and what you might win!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Friday, December 23 at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, December 23 at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to SplitcoastStampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC89. When creating your posts on blogs please include a direct link to the challenge.
