ODBDSLC68 Grand Old...

Welcome to another fabulous Shining the Light Challenge! This week's challenge:

Be Inspired by a WORD or the ENTIRE PHRASE "You're a grand old flag, you're a high flying flag."

You can use a flag, something flying, something high or grand.....

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 Thursday, July 21. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. 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 or will they qualify for prizes. You can find complete details/rules at ODBD's blog.

And my design for this week's challenge...

Inspiration - Old (vintage) and high flying (butterflies)...

I randomly stamped the image with all three distress inks. After getting the effect I desired, I used a corner punch to round the edges and inked them. I used the darker Walnut Stain for this part. Once that was completed I stamped my sentiment on with the Walnut ink. I attached a strip of ribbon on the front of my card and tied a double bow. I inked the blossom lightly with the Walnut Stain before adhering to the card front. The leaves are cut out of kraft paper and inked as well. The other details behind the rose are actually tiny medallion punches I cut out of coffee filters! To finish up, I added some pretty pearls in back! You will find a product list below.

Thanks again and I can't wait to see what you will create! Please visit my sister sticks to see the eye candy they have for you!
