Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #62

Happy Saturday everyone!

It's time for Our Daily Bread Design's Shining the Light Challenge 62!

This week we have a wonderful sketch challenge for you! It's always a favorite with me!
Each month we will be featuring a card from one of ODBD's design or challenge team and creating a sketch that cases their card design. This month's featured designer is our sweet and  talented Sabrina!
To make the challenge even more fun ODBD is 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, June 2nd 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 and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by May 26 at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC61. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge!
This is what I created!

The ODBD Bird Border & Corners image I used was designed by our very own Dawn Lusk (DawnL)!

I colored directly onto the stamp using markers, used the huffing tech and stamped. Spellbinder's Lables 18 Nestabilities were used to cut out and frame the image. I used a pop out flower from a Flower Soft "Wildflower" Kit over the top of the image and a Fleur de Lis Shapeabilitie on the bottom. The background was embossed using a Sizzix E/F. Gold pearls and ribbon were added!

This is the inside of my card!

More images from ODBD's Bird Border & Corners and the sentiment from ODBD's Scripture Collection 6!

This is Sabrina's Sketch!

We hope you will play along with us! We would love to see what you create!
