ODBDSLC58 - A Sketch and Some Exciting News!

My card today is for the current ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #58, a sketch challenge.  I'm also going to share some exciting news... For the months of May and June I'm going to be a Guest Designer for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge!!!! I cannot tell you how excited I was when I got the email from Chris, the challenge team coordinator, asking me if I wanted to be a guest designer!  And, of course, I said "YES!!" From the very start of my online papercrafting journey Our Daily Bread Design stamps have been a favorite of mine.  I love everything about them from the images to the scriptures and sentiments.  I cannot tell you what a blessing it is to have stamps that help me express and share my faith! 



For my card I used two ODBD sets "Sing to the Lord" and "Tulip Tag".  The color combo comes from the current color challenge over at Splitcoaststampers of Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze and Certain Celery.  I followed the sketch pretty faithfully except that I did not add the extra rectangle with the oval because I didn't want to cover up the little bird image from the "Sing to the Lord" set.  I diecut the oval using the ODBD/Spellbinder exclusive die set called Elegant Ovals (love those dies!!!).  A bit of distressing was done to the card using a distressing tool and Rangers Old Paper Distress Ink. 

Thanks for taking a peek....  and thank you to ODBD for giving me the opportunity to be a guest designer!
