Anniversary flowers. . .

Her children arise and call her blessed! Proverbs 31:28

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #99 ~ Flowers

Since our March challenges are now beginning and this month marks the FOURTH Anniversary of Our Daily Bread Designs, all our challenges will focus on the ODBD's Anniversary! One of the traditional gifts for the fourth anniversary is flowers. We would like to see flowers on your creations. Not just flower embellishments but flower stamps.  

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 9 at 8 a.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

If you upload your creations to ODBD, Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC99. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.

For some really beautiful work, please take a bit of time to visit  my fellow challenge team members blogs. . .it will be like a virtual garden tour so be sure to stop and smell the roses. . er, flowers!


Since I had such a hard time choosing one favorite flower from ODBD, instead I picked a set that has LOTS of flowers. I love spring flowers and the mix on this set contains some of my favorites (at least that's how I've colored them!) : dianthus, bachelor buttons, roses, lavender, cosmos and daisies. Praying that whatever season it is in your household, this bouquet carries with it a fragrance of sweetness to brighten your day and encourage your heart as you press on in the strength the Lord provides!
