You bless me!

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever! His faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:5

ODBD Shining the Light Challenge #149

This week, the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge Team challenges YOU to make a project that is other than a classic square or retangle (can have fancy edges or a different shape).

We're also welcoming our guest designer, the talented Gloria Stengel! Welcome Gloria, I'm so excited to working with you again and can't wait to see what amazing projects you turn out!

To make the challenge even more rewarding, we will be giving out a $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! And, if you use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing one to two creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. All submissions must be added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, April 14 at 8 p.m. EST. 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!

Project Details 

This started out as a circle card, but the lace doily wasn't substantial enough to support, so I added a backing. The flower was made from a homemade kit given by a neighbor. The fabric circles were carefully singed (careful not to burn or breathe!) and then stacked together, held with a glitter brad. This is the thank you card that will be given in return for the sweet blessing of the kit!

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs Sentiments Collection and Scripture Collection 11
Ink: Versa Mark
Paper: Tan, Purple
Accessories: Spellbinders for Our Daily Bread Designs Ribbon Tag Trio Dies, scallop circles; doilies, seam binding, silver embossing powder.
