Send forth your light and truth. . .

 Send forth your light and your truth. Let them guide me. Psalm 43:3

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #101  ~ Silk

Today marks the third March Anniversary challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. . One of the traditional fourth anniversary gifts is silk. This week’s challenge is to use silk or faux silk on your project with your Our Daily Bread Designs stamps. ODBD's very own, Angella Crocket (Angie) provided a very helpful tutorial last week ODBD's Faux Silk Tutorial. If you would rather not do this technique (although it really is not difficult) you can use silk (silk ribbon works).

You must use Our Daily Bread Stamps to link your creation.

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 30 at 8 a.m. EST.

 If you upload your creations to ODBD, Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC101. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge. Complete details are available on the ODBD blog.

Please take a bit of time to visit  my fellow challenge team members blogs, you'll be blessed!
