Good morning everyone!

This week the ODBD Challenge Team is challenging you to "Recycle". Since this month is earth day  the team thought we would challenge you to recycle. You can use a recycled item on your creation (sponging bubble wrap, foil embossing) or use it for a technique to create your card or project!

To make the challenge even more fun, ODBD 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, April 22. 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!

Here is my creation for todays challenge!

The Scripture from ODBD's Scriptures four set was stamped then cut out and embossed using Spellbinders Nestibillities! The larger die cut is from a recycled tissue box. The background was embossed using a Sizzix E/F and the cuttlebug. Ziva pearls were added! The dogwood blossom was done using punches.    

If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword  ODBDSLC10. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge! Please check
ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Check out what all the ODBD Challenge Team has  created for you!
