Happy Saturday Everyone!!  Well I am away for the weekend visiting family and celebrating my dear father's birthday but I am stopping by to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's Challenge:
This week the team is challenging you to an anything goes challenge but you must use at least one Our Daily Bread Designs stamp on 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 Thursday,
October 21. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

This challenge is unique from the others since we are asking you to use at least one Our Daily Bread Designs stamp on your creation!!As we do every week, we will again be choosing 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by October 21 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC33. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge using Our Daily Bread Designs Missing You stamp set!

I colored my image with copics and used the Midnight Madness sketch for my layout.


My take on the sketch is somewhat between the two.  The dp is from Basic Grey's Bittersweet and Olivia designer paper packs. The bow is made with the bow easy and some May Arts Silk Ribbon. I added some diamond rhinestones to my image panel as well as some piercing.  My gold paper is not gold paper but rather green paper embossed with gold embossing powder. I also added glitter to some of the flowers. 

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Francie Gumprecht
