Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!!

Today marks another challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light!

November 25. 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.As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, 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 November 25 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC38. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge for this week using Holly tags and the new tag die
at Our Daily Bread designs.

The embossing uses a Stampin up embossing folder on very vanilla paper.  I added baubles on most of the flowers.  The bow is created with burgundy silk ribbon from May Arts and some glittered balls and gold bell baubles.  The gold around the borders is gold foil metallic paper.  The sentiment panel is cut out with a punch.
