ODBDSLC114 ~ Anything Goes II Plus A New Day & Time!

It is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge!  This week we have an easy peasy challenge! Use anything from Our Daily Bread Designs!   

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, July 8th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC114. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to our challenge.

This week's challenge will end Sunday, July 8 at 8 pm EST. In the future, all challenges will begin on Tuesdays at 8 a.m. EST and end on Sunday's at 8 pm EST. So mark it down on your crafting calendar!

Here's my second creation this week for our Anything Goes Challenge...

I used kraft card stock for my base with some dark chocolate card stock matting. The DP is from Bo Bunny's Little Miss collection. I distressed all edges and lightly inked it with Pumice Stone colored Distress Ink before placement. I added a sliver of kraft card stock to one side and used a die to cut a doily out of sand colored card stock. I stamped my sentiment (from ODBD's Special Blend set) on kraft before cutting with Spellbinders' Nesting Tea Cups die. I LOVE this stamp set! It's darling!

I added a Memory Box die cut for my "steam." If you look closely you will see some Stickles for bling! A blossom flourish and a bow set it off! I had a chance to my Sister Stick Becca's new bow maker! Boy, it makes tying a bow MUCH easier! And prettier! :-)

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