ODBD Bread Basket

Saturday, March 26, 2011
Happy Saturday Everyone!!  The weekend is here and I hope you are all enjoying it!!  It is not too warm but at least there is no more white stuff coming down here. Woo hoo!!

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD.
This weeks challenge: "Frame It" Create a Frame or stamp a frame for your image or sentiment .  A frame does not mean just an extra layer but a real frame whether it be stamped, flowers or a different type of die.

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, March 31. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. If you are not using ODBD stamps, please do not enter more than once. Additional entries without using ODBD stamps will not be commented on or will they qualify for prizes.

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 March 31 at 8 p.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC54. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.
Here is my creation for the challenge:

For my creation I used the ODBD sets: Scripture Collection 5 and Fancy Labels.  
The frame was embossed in gold on Sparkling Spring paper (Prima).  The background dp is also Sparkly Spring.  The scrolls on the bottom and top of my sentiment panel are using the Spellbinders Fancy tags die.  The Fancy Labels stamp from ODBD coordinates with Spellbinders Labels 17 die.  The oval in the middle of the fancy frames stamp is gold glitter paper cut out with my Spellbinders Petite ovals die (large and small).   The roses are Wild Orchids.  If you click on the photo, you can see the dry embossing.

I also made this card to fit the Stamping in Time challenge which is "New".  I used a new product which is my new hat pin from my dear friend Sabrina and the pearls which are new Recollections flourishes available at Michaels.

I plan to send this card to  a dear friend who has cancer and is receiving chemo right now.

Card recipe:
stamps: ODBD sets: Scripture Collection 5 and Fancy Labels
Paper: Prima Sparkling Spring embossed with Soft Swirls from Provocraft, black, Blushing Bride
Accessories: Labels 17 spellbinders, Petite ovals (lg and sm) from Spellbinders, Soft Swirls embossing folder, Wild Orchids Flowers, May Arts White Wrinkled ribbon, Recollection Pearl Flourishes, crystal gems, tear drop lace from Stamp and Create, hat pin from my friend Sabrina
