And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

ODBDSLC137 - Something New Something Old

Hello friends!  I can't tell you how excited I am to be posting my very first Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge as a design team member!  I am looking forward to sharing a new challenge sample with you each Tuesday, so I hope you will be able to join me each week and play along on the ODBD Blog!  Now on to this week's challenge!

This week's challenge is:
To use something new and something old

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 Sunday, January 14th at 8 p.m. EST.  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 three or more of our participants for the Shining the Light Award. In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday,  January 13th at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC137.  When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Creative Nugget:  To begin making this card, I used my new Snowflake Dies to cut three different snowflakes from some Pure Luxury card stock.  Two more snowflakes were stamped on this panel using my new Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set and Summer Sky ink. This panel was then lightly taped to another piece of card stock the same size and the three matching snowflakes were stamped through the die cuts.  The top panel was then embossed with my old Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The sentiment from my new Snowflake Sentiments stamp set was stamped and cut with an old rectangle nestie and mounted on an old Romantic Rectangle die cut from Brocade Blue card stock.  An old Fanciful Flourish die cut, a new stamped snowflake die, some twine, and rhinestones finish the card.

Take time to stop in to see more fabulous inspiration from the other Challenge Team members!

Oh my word - that is just gorgeous! I knew the snowflake stamps were already on my wishlist for next time I'm buying, but now the dies are getting added on too! I love the way the verse stands out against all the soft blues and white.
