ODBDSLC83 Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday everyone!

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

This weeks challenge is a sketch challenge!

A few months ago, we began featuring beautiful cards done by some of the "bread basket" for our sketches. This sketch was created to feature this card designed by the talented and sweet Connie McCotter!!

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, Nov. 11th- 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 Nov. 11th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to SplitcoastStampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC83. 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!

I chose to use one of my all time favorites ODBD's Sing to the Lord! After stamping the image and coloring using copic markers and reinkers it was cut out and framed using Spellbinder's Nestibilities. While still in the diecut I sponged around the image. The same tech was used to cut and frame the sentiment from ODBD's Faith!  The lovely swirl is CherryLynn Dies Fanciful Flourish! I made the flowers using a tutorial from the sweet and talented Pat Smethers found HERE!

This is the sketch to follow!

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

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

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

 Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

My goodness, Fran, your flowers are spot on FANTASTIC - what a wonderful way to embellish using those with the Fanciful Flourish to accent your delicate image of the bird on the flowered branch. Beautiful choice! Love that this is a 'white card' - such a pure and simple look! Hugs!
