Happy Tuesday all!! I hope you are all having a fantastic week!!  It is a gorgeous spring day with 60 degree weather and sunshine as I write this post!!  It is amazing how the weather affects your attitude and ambition.  God's creation is beginning to look a lot more like Spring as well with the trees budding...the grass turning greener...what a miracle!!

Today I would like to share a card for the Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light challenge.  This week marks the 5th year Anniversary at ODBD.  Our challenges and events this week are a celebration!! Hope you have a chance to join us for the many events!!

This week's Shining the Light challenge is to make an Anniversary card with silver (since silverware is the gift for a 5th year anniversary).

Here is my creation using All Occasion Sentiments from ODBD:

Our Daily Bread Designs, All Occasion Sentiments

When I think of weddings and Anniversary's I think white or cream....elegance. 
Card Recipe
 This card is Created with the sentiment from All Occasion Sentiments, Spellbinders Fancy Labels 3, Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles, Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish, prima rose buds, Provocraft Soft Swirls Embossing Folder, Silver Baubles, and May Arts Wrinkled Lilac Ribbon.
