Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are enjoying the weekend.  This is the last weekend on the campground.  I am just popping in to share the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
This week's Challenge:

This week the team is challenging you to use some of those forgotten embellishments in your stash. Use Buttons, brads or eyelets on your card.

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize , a $ 15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for the prize must be submitted by Thursday, September 9. 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 1 to 2 creations to spotlight for our Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by September 9 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC28. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.  The link to the ODBD blog is here.

Here is my take on the challenge using Living Water from Our Daily Bread designs.

The dp is from my scrap bin...I know some is SU Holiday and the other is My Minds Eye.  The pink bow is pink silk.  My forgotten embellishment is eyelets which I laced.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Francie Gumprecht
Patter Cross
Sabrina Jackson

Whoopsie Daisy: lots of flowers
