Hello friends!! Its Tuesday and that means time for another Shining the Light challenge (ODBDSLC122). And as indicated in the title of my post the challenge is to use a bird or birds somewhere on your project. In my case the bird I went with is a chicken!
For my card this week I decided to go kinda French Country and used some really pretty designer papers from Stampin Up! called Beau Chateau. Soft pink, soft brown, light blue and cream make up the color palette used for the papers. I focused on the soft pink, soft brown and cream. The layout is based on this month's Sketch for You To Try. The verse is from the ODBD Scripture Collection 7 and is one of my favorites. It was die cut using a Spellbinders Labels One die and a brand new Spellbinders die set Decorative Labels One. The edges of all the papers and card stock were inked with Rangers Old Paper distress ink. Originally I did not have the flowers and rhinestones on the card, but decided to add them as I felt the card was just a little too plain. I'm also going to pop this into the current Catered Crop challenge "In the Pink".
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, September 16th 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, September 16th at 8:00 pm EST. If you upload to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword: ODBDSLC122. When creating your post on your blog, please include a direct link to the challenge.
