ODBDSLC121 ~ You Leave Me In Stitches!

It is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge!  (And this one will last 2 weeks!) 

This time we want to see stitches!
Faux or real...

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!! 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 Sunday, September 9th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC121. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

And now for my take...

For my stitching I cheated and used an embossing folder. After embossing the DP, I lightly sanded it with a distressing tool to make the stitching pop. I chose Our Daily Bread Designs' With Heartfelt Sympathy set for this card. This set is so elegant! I know this one will be my go to set for all of my sympathy cards.

I used a DP resembling an old map for the die cut Spellbinders Moroccan Motif and placed a black scalloped die beneath the sentiment panel. For this card I opted to stamp my image and sentiment with coordinating ink. A few blossoms and die punched leaves add a bit of whimsy. I also cut up a pearl flourish and added it the floral spray and the upper corner. I thought it might be a little bland! Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time... blessings...

Please stop by and visit my "sister sticks" to see their lovely creations! And don't forget to leave them some love!
