ODBDSLC124 ~ All About the Melody

It is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs' Shining the Light Challenge... 

This challenge is all about the melody! 

(This challenge lasts 2 weeks!) 

Create a card or project with some musical element. It can include a musical theme, words in the sentiment or verse having to do with music or instruments, an embossing folder or designer paper.  Let your musical imagination go wild!

  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, October 7th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC124. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

And my creation for the week...

I chose a couple of musical elements.  One layer of designer paper has musical notes all over it.  I also opted to use a Scripture stamp referencing singing and music.  (Oh, how I love to make a "joyful" noise...)  A shabby rose is surrounded by bits of paper punched foliage and pearls.  I also added a few burgundy blossoms to break up the neutral tones.  When I think of singing, my mind naturally turns to birds.  So I pulled a few craft feathers out of my stash and tucked a few behind the flower grouping.  Kinda shabby and eclectic...  So whatcha think? 

Make sure to stop by and visit my sister sticks! They have some wonderful creations to share! And don't forget to leave them some love!  Thanks so much to Katherine Lawson, our special guest this month!
