Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a great beginning to your weekend!!  My hubby and I are trying hard to organize our basement and much to do to unpack the remainder of our belongings but we are getting closer...Woohoo!!  Soon I may be able to organize all my crafts too!!  Oh how nice it will be to know where everything is! I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs using a sneak peek of "Dream" to be released on May 1.

This week's challenge: 
No Designer Paper- This week we want to see creations created with your own backgrounds, embossing, or just plain cardstock….no designer paper.

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, May 4th at 8 a.m. EST. 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 three or more of our participants  for the  Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, May 4th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC106. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Our Daily Bread Designs- Dream (Sneak Peek to be released on May 1)
Embossing Folder: Stampin Up-Textured Impressions Framed Tulips
Spellbinders Dies: Persian Accents, Fleur De Lis Squares, Bitty Blossoms, Classic Squares
Punches:  Martha Stewart Twig Punch
Lace Ribbon: May Arts

I had fun making this card without Designer Paper.  I even challenged myself to make the flowers using the Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms. The larger leaves are also using the same die set.  I hope to use this card for a graduation.
