Happy Saturday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!!  We are busy packing and boy am I ever exhausted!!  At least we can see some big accomplishments being made.

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

This week's challenge:
This week the challenge team would like to see you use or create a scene on your card.  The scene does not have to be a stamp, it could also be on your designer paper.  

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, February 24th 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 yoursubmission added to Mr. Linky by Friday, February 24th at 8 a.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC97. When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my take on the challenge:

I had fun coloring the image from the Mighty Sea available at ODBD with my copics.  The sky is sponged but for some reason I had difficulty photographing it.  The window is a customized Window Die for ODBD made by Spellbinders.

ODBD Stamps used: The Mighty Sea
ODBD Dies:  ODBD Window Die
Accessories: Dp from my scrap stash, shell charm, blue silk May Arts Ribbon, hemp, lace
