"No Ribbon"

 You may use lace, hemp, cording or string...but no ribbons!!

To make the challenge even more fun ODBD's 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, April 14th. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once.

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. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword  ODBDSLC56. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Please see ODBD's Blog for all the details!

For my "No Ribbon" creation I decided to make a masculine card!

The newly released image from ODBD's  "Father's Day" was stamped twice. After coloring both, I cut the head and antlers from one and popped it up. The foliage was done using copics and "Flower Soft".
The sky was sponged in! I used ODBD's  "Wood Background" and Spellbinder's Lables 18 to create the framing for the image. The background was stamped using ODBD's  "Birch Background".

We hope you will play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Blessings and hugs!
