Happy Saturday everyone!

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

This week we are challenging you to use those forgotten embellishments ~ buttons, brads or eyelets!

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, September 9. 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 ODBD's Blog for all the details!

Here is what I created! ODBDSLC28!


Buttons are my "forgotton embellighment". I find myself buying buttons but never using them. I love the way they look on other people creations, just never remember to use them on mine!

Recipe:
Stamps: ODBD's "Never Thurst"
Spellbinders Nestibillities diecuts and Tim Holtz Diecut
K&Co D/P
Embossed using clear embossing powder. Copic markers
Buttons.

Please see what the other ODBD Challenge Team has created:


We hope you will play along with us! We would love to see what you create!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a safe and fabulous weekend!

Francie, your card is stunning.. as they always are. I am thinking that is glossy accents on your flower embellie and it is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for stopping by my 'so new' blog and becoming a follower. Just trying to get it started and so good to have visitors.

Fran, this is totally gorgeous! Beautiful colors, patterns, and the flower cluster with the pearls is just gorgeous! I KNOW what you mean about buttons. I always have to cover up the holes! LOL! I think I may have left a few nekked here and there on my cards, but mostly, I cover them! Wonderful card! How is your dh? Recovering I hope!
