ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #110 ~ A Color Challenge!

Happy Memorial Day weekend! Thanks to all of those who have served their country. We also remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Take a few moments this weekend to tell a veteran you love and respect them for the sacrifices they made. I promise it will warm your heart even more than theirs!

In honor of all of our veterans, all American and patriotic sets are 20% off at ODBD this weekend. And there is free shipping for orders over $20.00! International orders receive $5 off their shipping. Check out Our Daily Bread Designs blog for sale sets!

Wow! Its also time for another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge! (This challenge will last for 2 weeks!) This week we are participating in a color challenge. The challenge...

Use the colors pink, black and/or grey and white/vanilla in your creation

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, June 8th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced Saturday, June 9th. 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, June 8th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC110. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

For this project I used an Our Daily Bread classic, Lord is My Shepherd for both the central image and scripture. (I just love this darling sheep image!) I stamped the image on vanilla card stock with black ink and added my scripture. I then used Spellbinders' Large Ovals to cut/emboss the central panel. I added a SB Scalloped Large Oval in black CS to make my central panel pop. My base is black card stock with a layer of vanilla matting. I selected my DP from Prima's Nature Garden collection. I tucked a bit of lace behind the custom dyed seam binding. Isn't the cut little key charm darling? Thanks to my dear DT buddy Sabrina for adding that little gem to my stash! A cream pearl flourish (cut and placed on opposit corners) adds interest. For final touches, I placed some vanilla and soft pink roses around my panel with a few paper punched leaves.

So let's check it off..

Pink - Flowers
Black and/or Gray - Card stock and Designer Paper
White or Cream - Card stock, flowers, pearls, lace

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