ODBDSLC120 Sketch Challenge

It is my third week as the August Guest Designer for the Shining Light Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs, I am loving using their images and sentiments for my cards.  The ladies are wonderful and encouraging - they make it a great place to be!

This weeks challenge is a Sketch Challenge

My sentiment is from the Our Daily Bread Designs Time stamp set.

 It has been stamped with Walnut Stain Distressing Ink and cut out using the Spellbinders Ironworks Accents Shapeabilities, sponged with Scattered Straw Distressing Ink before removing it from the Die.  This has then been popped up using foam tape onto the Spellbinders Floral Motifs Shapeabilities - all of my Dies have been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur

A gem circle and pearl flourish are from Want2Scrap, the side panel has been embossed using the Spellbinders Elegance M-Bossabilities Folder.  My paper is from Basic Grey.

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 Sunday, August 26 at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

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 three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, August 19 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC120  When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
