Hello friends!  I hope your week is going well!  Mine has been busy after just getting back from a camping trip.  It is so fun to go with family on vacation but there is so much work after the fact...Time to catch up!!!

Anywho...today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's challenge: 
Is to use scripture on your card or 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 Sunday, August 12th at 8 p.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 Sunday, August 12th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC118.  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 one of my favorite verses from Philippians 4:13 available in the Scripture Collection 8 stamp set available at Our Daily Bread Designs.  I also used the dragonflies from Faithful Friend.  I used Neenah White Card Stock, Stampin Up Wild Wasabi Ink, and copics for the dragonflies, May Arts Ribbon and a Spellbinders Antique Frame & Accents set for my frame.  The card is embossed with Cuttlebug Soft Swirls and framed with the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles.

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

Your card is so beautiful Chris. I love the touches of green with the mostly white card, and the silver pearls. The green and the dragonflies remind me of God's beautiful world, and all of his wild creatures, which I never tire of looking at.
