Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.  The weather is like Spring here. Woo hoo!!
With spring on its way for so many in the USA, we thought that it would be fun to have an ODBD Challenge which would go along with that....

This weeks challenge: New Life- Since it is the first day of spring during this week in the USA, we want to see creations symbolizing New Life...this can be Easter, or flowers.....etc.  
This week's challenge is a challenge using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps only.  You must use at least one image or sentiment or image to qualify for the challenge, 

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, March 24. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. 

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 March 24 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC53. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
Here is my creation:

For my creation, I used the Daffodil Corners, Eternity, and Scripture collection 5 sets from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Eternity frame has a matching die called Labels 1 which is only available at ODBD (it was customized for ODBD by Spellbinders. ) The paper is from Prima Botanical.  The butterfly is one I purchased from Michaels.  The ribbon is ivory silk from May Arts which I created with the bow easy.   The daffodils are colored with copics.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Lori- guest designer
To join the challenge, please link your creation here.
Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!!
