ODBD Bread Basket

Tuesday, November 6, 2012
Hello Friends!!  I hope all are having a wonderful week!! Today is a big day for those in the USA since it is our presidential election.  I continue to pray that God's will be done with our country.  This election more than any, I feel, will determine the future of our nation.  While I know it is in His control and God tells us not to worry cause each day has enough worry of it's own, it does cause me worry.

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

This week's challenge is: 
Winter White- Winter is on it’s way and maybe even some snow- let’s see your all white creations (ODBDSLC129)

For my creation I used The Babe and Christmas Flourished Verses from Our Daily Bread Designs.   The nativity image was so beautiful that I just colored the image with copics, cut it out and framed it with Spellbinders Labels 22 on top of a piece of white cardstock embossed with Provocraft (Cuttlebug) Swiss Dots. I did not want design paper to detract from the image or take away from the softness of it so I mounted the framed image on a piece of white cardstock (Neehan Solar White) that was embossed with the Sizzix Plaid folder. The sentiment from Christmas Flourished Verses is framed with Spellbinders Petite Ovals and Fancy Tags 2. 

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: 
Christmas Flourished VersesThe Babe
Paper: Neenah Solar White (110 lbs)
Accessories: Sizzix Plaid Embossing Folder, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Spellbinders-Labels 22, Petite Ovals, Fancy Tags 2, White sheer Ribbon, pearls

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

Chris, this is so elegant, and so fitting for this image of our Savior at His Birth. I don't believe I have seen these dies before, but I love them. And I love the addition of the pearls. Beautiful design and beautiful card.
