Happy Saturday everyone!

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

Todays challenge is to use dots or strips on your creations!

To make the challenge even more fun, Our Daily Bread Designs 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 Friday, Sept 9th! 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 Sept 9th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC74. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge!

Please see ODBD Blog for all the details!

Here is my card!

There are dots and strips in the dp and also dots in the embossed background!
The lovely flower and sentiment  are from ODBD's Sweet William (small)! After stamping several of the petals I cut them out using Spellbinders "Blossom Three"! The leaves were created using Spellbinder's Foliage diecut and Sizzix leaf diecut. The background panels were embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder. Pearls were added to the sentiment panel!

Please stop by to see what the talented ODBD Challenge team have created!

We hope you will play along!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to hug your loved ones!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Hugs!
