ODBDSLC101 - Silk or Faux Silk

Hey there!!  It's Saturday and that means time for another ODBD Shining the Light challenge!!  The challenge this week continues the month long anniversary challenges that celebrate ODBD's 4th anniversary!!   One of the traditional gifts for the fourth anniversary is silk.  So, the challenge this week is to use silk or faux silk on your project along with ODBD stamps.   ODBD design team member extraordinaire, Angie, has created a fantastic tutorial on the faux silk technique... you can check it out here.  




To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, 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, March 30th at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on most of our challenges, this month it is an Our Daily Bread Designs only challenge month in honor of the ODBD 4th Anniversary. Three or more of our participants will be chosen for the Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, March 30th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC101. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

I had planned on trying the faux silk technique, but unfortunately I kinda ran out of time and so I used some silk ribbon on my card. Thankfully many of my fellow breadsticks were able to create cards using the technique so you will have lots of amazing creations to review.  The stamps are from the ODBD set Faithful Friend which was released this month.  My color choices were determined by the gorgeous Stampin Up! papers that I used.  The papers are from a limited edition paper pack that was only available during SU!'s annual Sale-A-Bration promotion.  So wishing I could get my hands on another paper pack, but alas I cannot.  Anywhoo... the layout for the card comes from this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  

Thanks for stopping by....please take some time to check out the beautiful projects created by my fellow "sticks" Lori, Jan Marie, Jan, Debi, Chris, Kathy, and Sabrina! To join in the fun, please click here.
