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)

Sweet Little Girl

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  I'm so glad you stopped by because it's time once again for a new Shining the Light Challenge at the Our Daily Bread Designs Blog. We love seeing your submissions in the gallery, so I hope you will be able to join us again this week.

This week's challenge is:
Black and White with Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps Only

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, March 3rd at 8 p.m. EST.  One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday.

Here are the challenge details:

This week you will need to use an Our Daily Bread Designs image or sentiment on your creation.  We will be choosing three or more participants for the Shining the Light Award.  In order to qualify for this award, you must use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, March 3rd at 8 p.m. EST.  If you upload your creations to Splitcoaststampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword ODBDSLC143.  When creating your posts on blogs, please include a link to the challenge.

Here is my Black and White sample:

Creative Nugget: The darling vintage image from the Little Girls stamp set was stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut with a Labels One Die.  Just a bit of Spun Sugar Distress ink was added to the edges while still in the die. A combination of black and white papers from the Enchanted Paper Collection by Bo Bunny, Spellbinders dies, and a Cheery Lynn Sweetheart Frame die were used to frame the little girls.  The sentiment from the same set was cut from a Spellbinders tag and sponged with a very little bit of Spun Sugar.  A Wrinkled Ribbon bow was dyed with the Spun Sugar ink pad and added to the card along with a few little pink heart crystals...I just had to give these little girls a touch of pink!  LOL!

Here is the stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs used to create this card,

Please take time to visit the other talented Sister Sticks for more fabulous inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful week!
