ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #108 ~ Inspired by Mother's Day Gifts!

Woo hoo! Welcome to another Our Daily Bread Designs' Shining the Light Challenge. This week we are participating in a photo inspiration challenge.

Tomorrow is Mother's Day- since most have already made cards for their moms, we want you to use one of the photos to inspire your creation. Please let us know what number you used.

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 18th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced Saturday, May 19th. 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 18th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC108. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

Here's my take on this week's challenge using photo #3...

For this project I used Our Daily Bread's latest set, Dreams. My base is a soft cream card stock with a nice DP featuring a soft green, cream and khaki (the colors from photo #3)... I embossed the kraft panel before adding the sentiment panel. I stamped my sentiment and images before lightly adding some desert sand ink around the edges and coloring the olive branch and dove with Copics. I finished the card with a lovely bow (compliments of Becca's Peg Bow Maker) and some cream mulberry flowers. I added a touch of bleached hemp for a little touch of nature!

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