Happy Saturday All!! I hope you all are having a great weekend!! 

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD.

This weeks challenge: A sketch.
Please note this challenge will last two weeks!

Each month we will be featuring a card from one of ODBD design or challenge team and creating a sketch that case's their card design.  This month's featured designer is the talented and sweet, Grace Nywening, our dt coordinator at ODBD.  The card we are featuring is this gorgeous 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, May 5 . One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

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 May 5 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC58. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the sketch:

For my card I used the ODBD sets:  Mother's Day and Bird and Butterfly Labels.  The birds and butterflies labels coordinates with the Labels 18 die from Spellbinders.  I used the Spellbinders Grand Caliber to cut it out.  The designer paper is a gorgeous collection of papers from Kaiser Craft Lilac Avenue Paper I purchased from Susana Custom Arts and Card Designs.
The bow is tied with the bow easy using May Arts Purple Silk ribbon.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Lori- guest designer

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!  Your comments are deeply appreciated!!  I hope you have a blessed Easter.  This will be my last post until Wednesday since my family and I are spending quality time with our Sister and Brother in law and their family.  May God bless you all this Easter!!
