ODBDSLC103 ~ New Life

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:

Since Spring is now here and signs of new life are happening all around us we want to see creations symbolizing new life! This can be Easter, a new baby, budding trees, flowers, etc.

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, April 13th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced Saturday, April 14th. 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, April 13th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC103. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

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


This card features another custom flower, created by layering 8 scallop punched layers. I started out with white card stock and then after punching inked each in the color I desired. In this case, I used a light pink, yellow and orange color. After the layers are cut, spritz with water, punch a hole in the middle and bind them together with a brad. Then pull each damp layer up around the center to form a flower "bud." Let dry. Then gently pull the layers apart, forming the look you desire. I finished by spritzing the entire flower with a Smooch Spritz. So fun! Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check out what my other Sister Sticks have for ya... Blessings...
