ODBDSLC116.... I Have Sunshine... on a Cloudy Day!

Hello, friends!!  Its Tuesday and time for another ODBD Shining the Light challenge!  This week the challenge team and our super fabulous guest designer, Sherry, are challenging you to make your project using clouds and/or sunshine.  I must admit when I saw what the challenge was going to be I was a bit worried that I was going to have a hard time coming up with something.  Then I took a look through my huge amount of supplies and came across a pad of papers from Echo Park called Hello, Summer.  And there inside that little pad of paper was exactly what I was looking for... paper with clouds and suns!   Yipeee!!  I was saved!   I just love the super cute and summery papers to be found inside the Hello, Summer 6x6 pad!   The layout for my card comes from this month's Sketch for You To Try and so I will be linking my card up to that challenge, as well.  I used the wonderful Helen Keller quote from the ODBD Quote Collection 1 set for the focal point of the card. 




As always, we will be giving out a prize, a $15.00 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Sunday, July 22nd at 8:00 pm EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced on Tuesday.   While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Design images and sentiments on your projects, we would definitely love to see them if you have them!!  As a way of recognizing those who do use ODBD stamps we will be choosing three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award.  In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, you must use ODBD stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, July 22nd at 8:00 pm EST.  If you upload to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword:  ODBDSLC116.  When creating your post on your blog, please include a direct link to the challenge.
