Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are having a great weekend!!

With fall coming up this week, the Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is challenging you to use fall colors or a fall theme!!

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Friday, September 23 at 8 a.m. EST. 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. Inorder to qualify for this award, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, September 23 at 8 a.m. EST.If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC77. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

For my creation, I used the Seeds and the Garden Tag Releases from the Our Daily Bread Designs September release.  The image is from the Garden Tag set and is colored with copics.  The quote  is from the Seeds set and is cut out with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags Trio.  This gift box uses the Pop n Top Template which is available as an SVG or PNG. file from Perfect Presentations and some Basic Grey Curio dp.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
