ODBDSLC101 ~ Silk or Faux Silk

Happy Saturday All!! So glad you stopped by! I hope you are all having a great weekend!! Today I am popping in to share this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge!!

This week’s challenge:

This month marks the third March Anniversary challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. One of the traditional gifts for a fourth anniversary is silk. This week’s challenge is to use silk or faux silk on your creation while using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps. Angie created a fabulous tutorial on this wonderful technique you can find HERE. There is a tutorial on SC as well. If you would rather not do this technique you can use silk or silk ribbon. But check out the tutorial first. It is not only easy but fun! I promise!

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, March 30th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced Saturday, March 31st. 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 nor 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, March 30th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC101. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.
Here's my take on this week's challenge...

For this card I chose ODBD's Scripture Collection 9. I began by paper punching the bottom of my white card stock base. I then prepared a faux silk panel using Angie's tutorial. The tissue I selected has a pale pink rose pattern. Once I cut the main panel out I cut a slightly larger coordinating pink mat to frame it. I prepared another smaller faux silk panel and then used a Spellbinder scalloped die to go between my scripture panel and the pink Spellbinders Floral Oval Panel. The scripture is from the Anniversary release, Scripture Collection 9. I added a few branches and a lovely dove from another Spellbinder set, Mix'd Media Elements. I added in a pink mulberry rose and a few paper punched rose leaves. A tiny jet bead gives Mrs. Dove an eye and a touch of a Copic marker adds a beak. A few pearls scattered around the edges add some bling! For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my Sister Sticks:
