Happy Saturday Everyone!!! I can't believe one week in April is already gone! Wow! Where does the time go.

Today it is time for another Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge!!

This week the challenge team is challenging you to a sketch that I created.

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 Thursday, April 15 at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them.
Here is my take on the sketch. I created a sympathy card for some dear friends who just lost their son using Praying for You from Our Daily Bread Designs and BG Wisteria paper.

Card recipe:

Stamps: ODBD Praying for you
Paper: BG Wisteria, lavendar
Accessories: White satin Ribbon from May Arts, Ek Success Wave border punch, MS Shell border punch, Spellbinders Lotus die, Spellbinders Label 8, bow easy, ZVA Creative pearls
Simple Doodles - inspire others
Stampin for the Weekend- Ribbons and bows
One stitch at a time- Anything goes
Stamping Vacation: Pick 3 (die cut machine, two pearls (two of one embellishement), faux or real stitching
Stamp Something- stitching
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Bought It, Use It (my Wisteria paper-I love it so I hoard it...LOL)
Tellen's Place: Anything Goes
Sew Many Cards Challenge/Lets see some stitching
Our Creative Corner - Bows
