ODBDSLC99 - Stamped Flowers

Happy Saturday All!! 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:

Since this month marks the FOURTH Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs, all our challenges will focus on the Anniversary!!! Since one of the traditional gifts for the fourth anniversary is flowers. We would like to see flowers on your creations. Not just flower embellishments, but flower stamps! You must use Our Daily Bread Stamps to link your creation.

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 9th 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, March 9th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC99. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

Here's my take on this week's challenge...

I pulled out one of the very first sets I ever purchased from ODBD, The Lord Has Risen. I used Copics on this one, V12, V15, V17, for the violets and G43, G46 for the leaves. Touches of Y11 and Y17 highlight the centers. I also used C1 to lightly shade the background. I cut and embossed the image with a Spellbinder die before adding a coordinating DP scalloped die underneath and a lacy doily die. Some ruffled ribbon adds interest!
