Happy Tuesday Everyone!! Yes...I am back...three days in a row and no I am not sick just trying to keep up some of my crafting this week.

Today I am popping in to share an extension of this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs!!  Last week's sketch challenge will continue through Sunday at August 5 at 8 p.m. You can join the challenge here.

Here is my creation:

My creation uses sneak peeks of Bookmarks Eagles and Bookmarks Verses to be released at Our Daily Bread Designs.  While the Bookmarks Eagles is a bookmark shape, I masked my image and stamped leaves around the rectangle and isolated the bird. The verse is frame with Romantic and Classic Rectangles from Spellbinders.  The background is embossed with a Birds and flowers folder from Cuttlebug.  The leaves are punched with a Martha Stewart Leaf and Twig punch as well as the Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish.

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

Lori Ulrich, Betty Wright and Angie Crockett

Thank you for playing along with our current challenge 'birds' over on the craftymess challenge blog.
Took me a
Minute to find the bird but I see it in the sentiment stamp. This is a very luxurious looking card due to the colours and the embellishments. Lovely piece of work.
Hope to see you entering more of our future challenges on our blog.
Love Lisa xxx
