Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are all having a great start to your weekend.  Today I will be a taxi service for my kids.  Lot of places to go...

Anywho...since it is Saturday, it is time for another Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's Challenge:
This week the team is challenging you to create a card or project with the colors kraft and black plus one other color and a neutral if you wish (white or cream).

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,
October 28. 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 October 28 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC34. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:
I used the ODBD stamp sets used: Dad and Randi's Song 
to create a gift bag for my Dad.  I embossed the leaves in gold.  The black embossed leaves were cut out and put on dimensionals.  The tag is created with the text in Randi's Song and the Spellbinders leaf die.

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