ODBDSLC123... Make Your Own Background

Hello friends!!  Its  Tuesday and that means time for a brand new Shining the Light challenge!! This week the challenge team is asking you to get out your stamps and create your own background.  You can use single stamps or background stamps for this challenge.



For my card I used one of my most favorite ODBD sets:  Faith.  I just love the butterfly branch image, as well as the verses and sentiments that are found in the set.  I used a subtle color combination that was pulled from the My Mind's Eye 6x6 Bluebell pad that I used.  I found a piece of paper from the pad that had a subtle grid pattern on it and then stamped the butterfly branch image using Stampin Up!'s River Rock.   Two pieces were cut from this piece.  The larger piece, as well as a strip.  Both pieces were matted using River Rock cardstock.  The verse, Psalm 36:5, was stamped using Hero Arts Splash chalk ink and then die cut using a Spellbinders plain circle die.  That piece was matted using River Rock, as well.  The layout for the card is based on the current Deconstructed Sketch.  I finished off the card with some twine, Prima roses and a little punched butterfly.
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 23rd 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 23rd at 8:00 pm EST. If you upload to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword: ODBDSLC123. When creating your post on your blog, please include a direct link to the challenge.

The Faith set is one of my favorites too Rosi. I love the sentiments, and they work so well with so many of ODBD's other sets.

I would never have thought about using the butterfly branch as a background. It's beautiful on your card.

You made such a pretty card from that sketch!
