Happy Saturday everyone! I'm loving all this warm spring weather and sunshine! I have been walking to try to lose a few pounds (winter chubby's)!  Planning a trip to meet up with people you haven't seen in a year tends to get one motivated!


This week the challenge team is challenging you to a sketch. We are so excited as a team to be sharing our second sketch for the Shining the Light Challenge!! I know I love sketches and  hope you do to!
 
Here is my ODBDSLC9 creation!
 

Our Daily Bread design's Quiet Waters    is such a versatile image! So many possibilities!
The lovely image was colored using copics! The trees were filled in using reinkers, an artist brush and water! I filled the shore line in using Flower Soft! The background was cuttlebugged! The clouds were done using a punched scallop and sponged in using blue ink!

This is this weeks sketch for you to follow:




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, April 15. 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!

Please see all the details on Our Daily Bread design's blog!

We hope you play along!!!!!!!!! Be sure to put ODBDSLC9 in your keywords!

Please check out what the other Challenge Design Team has created for you!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope your will play along! Hope you have a blessed and marvelous day!

I love this image, Fran, but adding the double bow just knocks my socks off!! WOW!!

I commented on your gorgeous card on SCS, but so glad I looked at it again as I didn't notice the embossed green BG which adds a nice detail! I love that luscious ribbon and want to try and create something using that layout...maybe later tonight or tomorrow.
