For our special Spotlight sponsor this week we have...

Please CLICK HERE to go to their website!

Cheryl has generously donated a $15.00 gift certificate in shopping bucks to spend on-line to our lucky challenge winner for this week!! So start getting "Repeatedly Useful" today!

Now, are you ready to see my take on the Spotlight Diva Challenge?
I used my newest release stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs: Luke 2:11 , Creative Card Crew Challenge to use ribbons and gems, Mojo 111 sketch! I stamped and restamped the poinsettia image 9 times, twice for the gold and ivory 3d flower and 7 times to create the border around my sentiment. I embossed the 3d flower with gold embossing powder and painted it with pearl glimmermist for added shimmer.

(Which reminds me to remind you as well about the "November Our Daily Bread Design Team Challenge... "Show Us the Shimmer that is going on until November 15! You don't have to use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps to play, although we would love to see you use them if you have them...and you have a chance to win a $30 credit to the store. So what are you waiting for...let us see the shimmer. Tee hee! Leave a direct link to your creation Here.)

The paper I used was from Basic Grey's Boxer line! I never realized how much I would like the olive green, ivory and gold together. I will definitely use that color combo again! Part of the background is embossed with the Fleur De Lis embossing folder. My card was sewn in spots with ivory thread.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Design: Luke 2:11
Paper: BG Boxer, Olive Bazzill, Very Vanilla, K&Co. Glitter Paper
Accessories: Ivory lace trim, Hero Arts Pearls, American Crafts Ribbon
And now that you've seen my creation, let's see how YOU can be repeatedly useful!!

Be sure to place the DIRECT link to your NEW creation in Mister Linky in order to qualify to win the prize from our sponsors or voting for the top 3 creations. (If you do NOT post a direct link, you will have to be removed from Mister Linky.) We would also appreciate if you would leave a link on your post to the Saturday Spotlight Challenge along with your creation.
