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.

Here is my card!

I chose to do Faux Leather and I also added pearls to each corner. The two faux leather techniques can be found in the Resource section on Splitcoaststampers web site. The Frame and Sentiment are from ODBD's  Eternity. The Frame was cut out and embossed using Spellbinders diecut exclusively made for ODBD's.  The faux leather tech was also used on the leaf from ODBD's Randi's Song!
