Good morning everyone!

It's Saturday and time for another Our Daily Bread Shining the Light Challenge!

This Week' Challenge:

The team would like you to distress it. You can use ink, tearing, or ripping...whatever it takes to give a distressed look somewhere on 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 Thursday, July 29. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.
 
Please see ODBD's Blog for details!
 
Here is my creation for ODBDSLC22
 

The main panel was distressed using distress inks sponged over white cardstock. After sponging I used the darkest color to swirl lightly over sponged area! The lovely image and sentiment ODBD's "Our Daily Bread" were stamped and clear embossed. I also distressed the sides of the panel using scissors!  The grunge flower was made using punches. The decorative border was made using M/S punch.

Please check out what the other ODBD Challenge Team has created:


We hope you can play along with us! Thanks for stopping by!

I love this beautiful card, Fran. Somehow tearing didn't seem to be you, and I was right!! Tailored, but distress inks, is more to my liking too! Lovely!
