Happy Saturday everyone!

It's time for another ODBDSLC4l!

For todays challenge Chris has posted several beautiful photos to help inspire us.
Please check out the photos and all the details on ODBD's Blog!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving  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, December 16. 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 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by December 16 at 8 p.m. EST.

I choose this beautiful inspiration piece!


Here is my creation!


I chose the outdoor scenes as my inspiration! I love the one with the bright red barn and the beautiful snow capped evergreens. The lovely Our Daily Bread Designs "Worship the Lord" was stamped and colored using copic markers. I added white acrylic paint to the trees, ground, sky and parts of the church for the snow effect. Glitter was also added to the roof! The background was embossed using a Tim Holtz embossing folder. Red crystals were added to the embossed tree tops. 

Please check out what the talented ODBDCT have created:


We hope you will play along with us! Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings and hugs!

LOVE your card. I love to take pictures of old churches when I travel. Posted one on my blog a while back with the old cemetery. It is one of my favorites. And, it was red. Your card is beautiful and I love the snow effect.
