Happy Saturday Everyone!!  By the time you view this post, we will be in Lancaster, VA taking a much needed respite or time away.  We all have been looking so forward to seeing all this Christmas decorations and seeing the sites there!!!

Anywho....It is time for another Shining the Light challenge this week!!


This weeks challenge:  
Is a Recipe!!- Ribbon, lace, and some glitter


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, December 2 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, December 2 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC86. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
Here is my take on the challenge using sneak peeks of the Little Things and Honey Comb Background stamps at ODBD to be released on December 1.  The border along the top is done with Floral Doily Accents from Spellbinders.  The background is embossed in gold and bordered with gold glitter paper.  The flowers are altered single prima flowers (very old stash) crumpled and layered together to make fuller blooms. The leaves are made with a Martha Stewart leaf punch and a Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish die.  The stick pin has pearls and gold glittered balls (from a floral swag at Michaels).  The lace and seam binding was gifted to me by my dear friend Sabrina.  Thanks Sabrina!!
