Happy Tuesday all!! I hope you all are doing well!!!  Scott has begun a new schedule at work so I am so blessed to not have to get up at 4 a.m. and only see him for a couple of hours a day before heading to bed. The schedule was fast wearing on us both!!  God is good and He answers prayer!!!

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

  This week's challenge is:

Other than a Classic Square or rectangle (Can have fancy edges 
or have a different shape)

For my creation I used:  Scripture Collection 11Crocheted BackgroundRomantic Floral Designs from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The Romantic Floral Designs is made to coordinate with the Labels 26 die at Spellbinders.  I colored my Romatic Floral design with a pinkish Mauve colored copic (R20),  The background panel is Bridal Bouquet and embossed in a Darice folder.  The panel behind the Romantic Rectangle is stamped with the Crocheted Background on Bridal Bouquet after I had cut out the square with a Labels 26 die.

Absolutely gorgeous Chris! Lov the color combo and the added texture. The flourish in black really pops and I love the stamped bg done after embossing the SB shape... adds a neat touch!

Gorgeous as always!
