Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you all are enjoying the weekend. If you visited yesterday, thene you may notice that this post is very similar but I am praying this time a photo is showing.  For whatever reason, I could see a photo of my card but I have had several people email me or leave a comment that they could let us try this again.

  This is a card I created for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge!!

This weeks challenge: Add a Tag
We don't want to see just a tag, we want to see a tag added to your card or 3d project.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Friday, August 19 at 8 a.m. EST. 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. Inorder to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday,  August 19 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC72. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

For my creation I used the ODBD sets and materials:
The designer paper is Pink Paislee.  I added some Prima flowers, ZVA creative small flourish pearls, seam binding from my dear friend Sabrina, lace from JoAnn Fabrics, and a hatpin and button from my stash (the button is recycled).  The corners and top border are created with the Fleur De Lis Motifs.

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