Happy Saturday everyone!

Another week has passed and it's time for ODBDSLC81! 

This weeks challenge: Use at least 3 different shapes on your card (for example oval, rectangle, and square. The base can count if it is matted only.)

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, Oct. 28 - 8:00 AM EST! 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 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 Oct. 21st at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to SplitcoastStampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC81. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge!

Please see ODBD Blog for all the details!

Here is my creation!

Unfortunately, I need a sympathy card this week! After stamping the sentiment from ODBD's  With Heartfelt Sympathy using Momento Cocoa Brown and VersaMagic I embossed using clear E/P and heat set!  The framing was done using Spellbinder's Scalloped circles and Circles. I also used just the tip of the cornucopia from ODBD's Give Thanks to add some interest! I used four different shapes: square base, rectangle panel, round circle for sentiment and a tiny decorative oval shape in the upper right hand corner! The lovely flowers are from Wild Orchid, D/P is Basic Grey and the small decorative corner accent is Spellbinder's Blossom Tag and Accents!

We hope you will play along! We would love to see your creations!

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