ODBDSLC106 ~ NO Designer Paper

Welcome and happy Saturday! Can you believe the weekend is finally here? Seems like only yesterday we were starting a new week. Bite my tongue right?? Today I want to share this week's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge.

This week we want to see projects created with your own backgrounds, embossing, or just plain cardstock… NO designer paper.

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, May 4th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced Saturday, May 5th. 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, May 4th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC106. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

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

I decorated my base card stock using ODBD's Faith Set. My chosen sentiment came from the recent Quote Collection 1 release. After stamping the images in different colors, I ran the card base through a paper crimper and added some additional distress ink. It brought out the corrugated look to the paper. I stamped a few additional images and cut our some butterflies and added those with dimensional foam to the completed project. Pretty clean and simple...

Thanks for stopping in and be sure to check out what my other Sister Sticks have for ya... Blessings...
